Synchrotron radiation-based Fourier transform infrared (SR-FTIR) microspectroscopy has been widely used to study various biosystems. However, SR-FTIR study of live biosystems remain difficult mainly because of water absorption in the mid-infrared region. A microfluidic device for synchrotron radiation infrared microspectroscopy of live cells is developed at the infrared beamline BL01B at Shanghai Synchrotron Radiation Facility (SSRF). The customed synchrotron infrared microfluidic device includes a microfluidic chip, two precision syringe pumps and temperature-control sample stage.The microfluidic device can not only be used to control water thickness precisely, but also provide hospitable environment for live biosystems.
