As a leading supplier in the fields of fluidics and microreaction technology, the Little Things Factory develops and produces high-quality components and systems solutions in glass, quartz and glass-silicon composite materials for a variety of sectors. Typical applications in the fields of life science, chemistry and research and development are lab-on-chip products as well as microreactors of the kind required in the fields of diagnostics, medicine distribution and implantology or the manufacture of special chemicals

The Little Things Factory has many years of expert knowledge in the design and application of optical, electronic and chemical functions within a wafer as the basis for microstructured processes. The company has thus become a sought-after partner for technology concerns, research institutions and universities alike.

Founded more than ten years ago as a spin-off from the Technical University in Ilmenau, the Little Things Factory continues to have excellent connections with the field of pure research. As a subsidiary of the listed company Plan Optik AG, the technology leader in microstructured wafers, our company has at its disposal at all times the latest innovative processes in microstructuring and surface finishing. In addition to standardised products which are used as microstructured components in customer applications, the Little Things Factory offers individual systems solutions to suit customer requirements and a process controlling system which is indispensable as a flexible tool when working with a miniplant for process monitoring and optimisation.


 プレスリリース

  • Elsoff. Little Things Factory GmbH (LTF) and Sigma-Aldrich® Corporation have signed a global distribution agreement for a number of glass microreactors produced by Little Things Factory. The products can now be purchased worldwide through the Sigma-Aldrich catalogue and are available online at www.sigma-aldrich.com.

    "Our distribution agreement with Sigma-Aldrich ensures scientists around the globe will have easy access to our high-performance microreactors," said Alexander Schilling, CEO of Little Things Factory GmbH. "Scientists will benefit through the exceptional service provided by Sigma-Aldrich's global supply chain and distribution network."
    "Our collaboration with Little Things Factory offers the global scientific community an enhanced line of high-quality microreactors to support the growing interest in this area of life science," added Pietro Butti, Product Manager at Sigma-Aldrich.

  • Elsoff. The Little Things Factory is now in the position to offer a wide range of reactors and fluidic chips made of quartz (fused silica). In contrast to other glass materials, quartz glass provides a variety of advantageous product properties. These include inter alia high transmission in the ultraviolet range, low thermal expansion, very high temperature stability, very high thermal resistance, very high thermal shock resistance, high purity of the material, low own fluorescence. 

    Therefore, customers could use the highest mixing efficiency with maximum UV-transmission and thus discover new standards in the photochemistry industry. All components will be fused by innovative bonding processes, to ensure maximum stability and chemical resistance.

  • Little Things Factory supplies lab on chip components made of glass, quartz and glass-silicon composite materials. These components are used as micro reactors in the field of medical and pharmaceutical technology as well as in the form of fluidic chips in the field of diagnostics, medical applications and implantology.

    As materials glass, quartz and glass-silicon combinations are ideal for these applications, since they are materials which can resist difficult environmental conditions such as, for example, high temperatures and chemicals. They nonetheless demonstrate a high degree of bio-compatibility. These characteristics distinguish the materials markedly from the polymer substances standardly used in these fields of application.

    For the creation of fluidic components and bio-chips Little Things Factory uses a wide range of structuring processes which have been employed for many years in the field of MEMS cap wafers, including, for example, micro-sandblasting and wet-chemical structuring of glass and quartz.The manufacture of these fluidic chips can be carried out inexpensively based on 6" or 8" wafers.
