In this application, researchers at University of Pennsylvania and Chonnam National University in Republic of Korea, developed a silicon and glass device that incorporates an array of 10,260 (285 × 36) microfluidic droplet generators that uses only a single set of inlets and outlets, thereby increasing throughput b >10,000× compared to microfluidics with a single generator. They used chemically resistant Master Bond EP41S-5 to bond the fittings. Here is a quote from this research:

"Stainless steel compressed tube fittings (1/8 tube OD) from McMaster Carr (52245K609) are bonded to the glass wafer using chemically resistant epoxy from Master Bond (EP41S-5). The epoxy is left to cure at room temperature for 4 days. PTFE tubes of 1/8 OD were connected to the fittings."
