    Features

    Different models to fit your needs

    The PX module is a CE and RoHS compliant single controller available in 3 pressure ranges. It is available for vacuum and pressures of up to 2 bar. It has been designed to maximize versatility with its dual interface USB and RS232 ports and is delivered with a full software package (SDK) to ease integration into Windows or Linux-based software platforms.

    Best in class stability

    0.1% thanks to our field-proven, patented FASTAB™  technology allowing optimal flow control with the robustness required in demanding industrial environments.

    Precise fluid injection

    Combine it with a flow sensor to regulate directly in flow rate and inject precise amounts of volume in the system.

    Expand as needed

    Combine as many modules as you want to fit your application needs. Each module consists of a separate pressure channel and can be controlled independently.

    Description

    In the base configuration, the system controls pressure, and the liquid flow is a function of system resistance, fluid viscosity, etc. The addition of a flow sensor enables one to control or monitor flow rate as well as dispense volume. The pressure automatically adjusts in the background to maintain the flow rate. When connected to a computer, one can use our Fluigent software to benefit from automation or live monitoring and recording of data.

    The PX modules, are available in different pressure and vacuum ranges, to provide the optimum level of pressure control and resolution. These can easily be joined together to match all application requirements or reconfigure the system for a new experimental design.

    FASTAB Microfluidic patented technology

    Fluigent developed the patented FASTAB™ technology: a pressure-driven technology that has no moving parts and includes an advanced feedback control algorithm to maintain precise pressure control.

    The technology used in this pressure pump avoids cross-contamination because liquids only contact air. Improved reliability and reproducibility of results are possible due to the pulseless flow.

    The use of pressure to handle fluids also provides a quick response time allowing for precise operations such as stop flow and accurate pressure/flow rate steps.

    User case

    lab on a chip microfluidic

    Context

    A photonic technology institute tests a variety of lab-on-chip systems, the number of flow channels and the required pressures vary from one test to another.

    Solution

    Due to its individually stackable channels adapted for different pressures, the PX series allowed for control of the different pressure variations required.

    Result

    The PX Pressure-driven flow control simplifies fluid management even for multiple fluids, and reduces the time needed to add or remove channels. It provides flexibility without compromising performance (accuracy and response time).
