Microfluidic Pressurized Fluid Reservoirs
Tube pressurization is at the very heart of Fluigent’s fluid handling solution. To connect a standard laboratory tube to the pressure delivered by our microfluidic flow controllers, a cap must be added that enables stable and precise fluid injection with no air leakage.
Our pressurized fluid reservoirs use specifically designed caps for pressurization in microfluidic experiments. Autoclavable for sterilization, they can be used with different types of vials for microfluidic experiments and are suitable for long-term experiments.

Features of the reservoirs
Pressurize standard lab vials for microfluidic experiments
The 1-Channel version of Fluiwell fits standard 15- and 50-mL lab vials. The 4-Channel version can be used with Micrew reservoirs of 0.5 and 2 mL.
High pressure compatibility
The pressurized fluid reservoirs can support pressures up to 7 bar.
The vials can be heated or agitated while handling the fluids.
No wetted materials
No contact between the cap and the sample. Only disposable materials are wetted.

The Fluiwell series is a tool for pressurizing liquida inside the vials in order for the fluids to flow through a microfluidic system. Caps are made of Delrin®, making them autoclavable. The reservoirs and caps are available with different volume sizes, channel numbers, and pressurization levels
