Material choice for microfluidic flow cells or biochips is not so much a choice in many cases but a given specification. The application defines the material. Microfluidic consumables made of glass dominate the applications where photonics meet microfluidics. Scaling up from proof-of-concept prototypes to the lab-on-a-chip application in large quantities is full of challenges. One of these challenges is integration of glass microfluidic chips in a system or cartridge. Glass microfluidic chips and sensors can be integrated into plastic cartridges to make use of the best of both worlds: get the high quality and material properties of glass and combine it with an easy to use plastic cartridge.
