Upchurch ScientificR NanoPort Assemblies are the first commercially available products to provide consistent fluid connections for chip-based analyses. Once attached, NanoPort connections can withstand pressures to 1,000 psi (69 bar).* NanoPorts will adhere to silicon, quartz, glass and some polymers.
All NanoPort components are made of inert, biocompatible PEEK polymer (nuts and ports) and PerlastR perfluoroelastomer (ferrules and gaskets). These products bond easily to chip surfaces with the provided Preformed Adhesive Rings (see Application Note). Their unique design also prevents adhesive contamination of the fluid path. And NanoPort connections add no additional volume to the fluid path, virtually eliminating dead volume traditionally associated with chip-based fluid connections. Our NanoPort Reservoir Assembly is designed for open well applications, such as CE. *Except the N-333 NanoPort Assembly, which is rated to 500 psi (34.5 bar).

NanoPort Reservoir Applications:
To select the appropriate NanoPort assembly you will need to consider:
Please Note: Each NanoPort Assembly includes a fitting (one- or two-piece), a NanoPort, gasket, a 2-pack of preformed adhesive rings, and a clamp for holding the port in place while the adhesive cures.
