The Microfluidics Laboratory of the ESPCI has used the Fluigent equipments for almost 10 years. Pressure-driven fluid handling brought a lot of flexibility and robustness in our daily experiments. The MFCS™-EZ is a strong and reliable device, able to adapt to all types of microfluidic experiment. The range complete by adding flow sensors able to transform the MFCS™-EZ into a full flow-rate piloting system with the FRP. Our laboratory trust Fluigent products, engineers, software developers as well as the entire team that makes every day a great job.
