About us

Fluigent: Smart Microfluidics™

Fluigent develops, manufactures, and supports innovative fluid handling solutions for a variety of rapidly growing applications where precise fluid control is important. We are the global leader in providing innovative fluid handling solutions for microfluidics, from compact microfluidic controllers for droplet generation to turnkey organ on a chip platforms. Since 2006 we have delivered thousands of Fluigent products, including the pressure pump MFCS™-EZ (Microfluidic Flow Control System), the sensors FRP (Flow-Rate Platform) and the ESS™ (Easy Switch Solutions™) to hundreds of customers worldwide, with two subsidiaries and a strong network of distributors.

 

Who we are

Global leader

In 2006, Fluigent changed the microfluidic market by introducing pressure-driven flow control pumps, as opposed to conventional syringe and peristaltic pumps.

Innovation Driven

Thanks to our FASTAB™ technology, experimental time has droped down from one hour to few seconds, allowing ground breaking discoveries and published papers.

Industrial Scale

Our product design and manufacturing activities far exceed simple assembly activities: we master all algorithmic, mechanic, electronical, pneumatic and microfluidic chains.

What we do

Intellectual Property

Thanks to our proprietary and patented solutions (FASTAB™ technology, pneumatic and electronic design…), we don’t rely on fixed pre-packaged external solutions and we are able to tailor products to your specific needs.

Complete solutions

Fluigent is the first and only company to master a full pressure and flow-rate control solution designed for coupled multi-channel configurations (Flow Rate Control Module).

Plug and play solutions

Our solutions are modularized, enabling our customers to save precious time with cumbersome engineering fluidic developments.

OEM

Our OEM products are specifically designed for integration into larger diagnostic & test equipment and include DLL libraries and industrial interface buses for easy integration.

Our strengths

Quality certification

Innovation

As pioneers in microfluidics, we have set the standard in microfluidic control and strive to stay in the forefront of the science. We have the responsibility actively innovate.

Customers satisfaction

Customer Focused

As our ISO 9001 shows, customer satisfaction drives us to improve ourselves every day. In addition to the performance of our products, we focus on ease of use and providing the highest level of technical support to optimize your set-ups.

Team Work

We come from diverse backgrounds and cultures, but we grow as one team. Our group of engineers, biologists, chemists, and business people work get the most from our different views to make our products smarter.

Our story

We can now offer our customers negative pressure ranges from -800mbar to -25mbar for very small pression ranges as well.

October 2011

MFCS™-FLEX and 100

Our product line intensifies as we can now mix pressure ranges within one device and we have a new pressure range: 100 PSI or 7bar.

June 2012

MFCS™-EZ and ESS™

We have now better performance on our pressure controller, with a new software, MAESFLO™ 3.0. We also expand our offer to new functionalities with a full switch platform.

October 2012

OEM activity

As our market still grows, we develop an OEM offer for industrial customers that need custom products that can be integrated within their own systems.

July 2013

FRCM algorithm

We develop an algorithm to control the flow-rate directly within our software for a better use and increased performance of their setups.

October 2013

FLOW-RATE PLATFORM

We offer now a modular solution for our flow sensors to be more relevant to the reality of the use of our intruments.

June 2014
