About us

Fluigent is an international company which develops, manufactures and supports the most advanced fluid control systems available for microfluidics. Whether your application is with droplets, cell biology, particle studies, or in other research areas, we have the expertise and knowledge to provide the most cost-effective and technically advanced solutions to your fluid control needs.

Why Fluigent?

The microfluidic laboratories and industry were struggling to perform their research and develop equipment to the level and precision required in terms of fluid control. As a result there was a need for faster, more stable and precise technology for fluid handling at the microscale. Traditional syringe or peristaltic pumps are struggling to deliver this level of performance and could not meet the market needs.

Fluigent was the first company to solve this problem by introducing an innovative technology: pressure pumps. Fluigent’s unique broad range of solutions for use in microfluidic and nanofluidics applications ensure full control of flow rates with a greater control, automation, precision, ease of use and also minimize contamination. Fluigent has delivered thousands of patented pressure-flow controllers systems to hundreds of customers worldwide.

Fluigent’s product design and manufacturing activities go beyond simple assembly activities. Fluigent masters algorithmic, mechanical, electronical, pneumatic and microfluidic chains.

Research lab can use our ready to go instruments for a broad range of applications where fluid control is critical. Industrial companies are able to integrate Fluigent’s technology to enhance and improve their own products.

In the rapidly growing microfluidic sector, Fluigent is a global leader

What is microfluidics?

Microfluidics is the science of manipulating and controlling fluids, usually in the range of microliters (10-6) to picoliters (10-12), in networks of channels with dimensions from tens to hundreds of micrometers. This discipline takes its origins in the early 1990’s and has grown exponentially. It is viewed as an essential tool for life science research or in a larger way in biotechnologies.

It is a very attractive technology for both academic researchers and industrial groups since it allows:

  • The development of new custom therapeutic treatment
  • To accelerate the discovery of new medicine and vaccine by reducing time and cost
  • To reduce animal testing
  • To have a low environmental impact
  • To reproduce the mechanical properties of a living human organ at a microscopic scale

Fluigent’s broad range of solutions offer greater control, automation, precision, and ease of use.

Our vision

Improve everyday reality, make the world a safer place, save lives by accelerating scientific progress and discovery

Our successes

They trust us

“The Microfluidics Laboratory of the ESPCI has used the Fluigent equipment 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 experiments. […] Our laboratory trust Fluigent products, engineers, software developers as well as the entire team that makes every day a great job”

Fabrice Monti / MMN Laboratory, IPGG

“[…] We use the pressure-based pumps from Fluigent for experiments that require swift responsiveness when manipulating fluids, and fine tuning at low flow rates. We use the Fluigent systems during the fabrication and running of the microfluidic chips. The ability to pump in air at high precision makes the Fluigent pressure-based systems ideally suited to selectively coat and functionalize micro-channels within a microfluidic network. After coating, we then fill the devices with the experimental solutions and use the pressure controls to move fluids around, open and close valves and carefully time the introduction of small molecules in the experiments.“

Our Story

timeline Fluigent

Fluigent was founded in 2005 by researchers from the Institute Curie in Paris. Fluigent was the first company to introduce pressure-driven flow control to the microfluidic research market, as opposed to conventional syringe and peristaltic pumps.

Our Corporate Social Responsibility

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. At its heart are the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which are an urgent call for action by all countries – developed and developing – in a global partnership.

With innovation at the heart of our activities, Fluigent has been part of this global project. Specifically, we have committed to Target 9.5 of the Goal 9 INDUSTRIES, INNOVATION AND INFRASTRUCTURE.

Target 9.5 calls upon companies to encourage innovation and substantially enhance scientific research and development workers, upgrade the technological capabilities of industrial sectors in all countries.

In 2020, Fluigent’s microfluidic solutions saved 25,470 hours for R & D researchers.

Fluigent’ s corporate social responsibility can also be seen in our Manufacturing process. Our products are manufactured in our production workshop near Paris. We have been selected to represent #MadeInFrance during the Great Exhibition at the Elysée Palace in July 2021, for the quality of our products and our French expertise.
