Inspection system for microfluidic chips


Inspection system for microfluidic chips

The MICRO.SPECTOR MI1 inspection system for microfluidic chips is an inline vision solution for automated 100% inspection of large-area and microstructured components. The fast and high-resolution image acquisition paired with AI-supported evaluation software makes it possible to reliably detect defects and check the dimensional accuracy of the chips. The MICRO.SPECTOR MI1 testing system can be operated stand-alone or fully automated in clean rooms.

What do we inspect?

A wide variety of process-related errors can occur, particularly in the production of the finest structures. The MICRO.SPECTOR MI1 testing system enables 100% testing of microfluidic chips and detects the smallest defects and shape deviations. The system can be used as an end-of-line control or directly in the manufacturing process of components.

Applications and implementations

Transparent chips

Transparent chips have the advantage that many inspections can be carried out with the transmitted light method or with dark field lighting. Due to the manufacturing process, defects often occur in the layer structure, which we reliably detect with our vision system.

MTP format microstructures, black

Large-format chips represent the next class of microfluidic systems. Due to the miniaturization of the arrays, the MICRO.SPECTOR MI1 inspection system records and processes more than 1 million features and structures per MTP.

3D microstructures

If microstructures are to be tested in 3D, the MV.EYE MI1 inspection system can also be equipped with 3D sensors. This means that structure sizes can be checked three-dimensionally and critical defects such as cracks, webbed feet or missing features can be identified.



The MABRI.VISION software has a modular design. In addition to a large number of standard modules, we are happy to expand the software with suitable modules for your application. All common interfaces are available for seamless integration into your production process.


The MV.IMAGING software supports your quality assurance through the use of databases for production orders and recipes. The database interface is based on the special requirements of your inspections and evaluations. All data can be exported as structured inspection reports in .csv, .xls or .pdf format.

Statistics / evaluation

Our software platform offers a variety of visualization options. Thanks to meaningful statistics, you keep track of production processes and quality assurance. Our software experts are familiar with the specific requirements of different industries and design the software using informative key figures and useful tools such as good parts counters, error and measurement image memories and advance warning limits for process support.


MABRI.VISION builds and develops high-quality machine vision solutions and modular inspection systems for your production processes. Our modular system enables us to provide solutions for your inspection tasks quickly and efficiently.
