Detailed features and description
Different models to fit your needs
The PX OEM Microfluidic Pressure Controller is a CE and RoHS compliant single-controller available in 5 pressure ranges. It is suitable for vacuuming and pressure of up to 2 bars. It’s 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.
Due to our field proven, patented FASTAB™ technology, the PX allows for optimal flow control with the robustness required in demanding industrial environments.
Precise fluid injection
Combine the PX 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 needed to fit your application needs. Each module consists of a separate pressure channel and can be controlled independently.
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 while also recording of data.
The PX microfluidic OEM pressure controller is 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.
Fluigent provides unique pressure controllers with high precision and stability
The PX is suited for performing microfluidic protocols while providing stable flow rates. With stability better than 0,5% full scale, users are ensured a continuous pressure input without any risk of drifts on a long-term basis (see experimental graph on the right).
Benefit from fast and accurate response to input
With a response time of less than 10ms, the PX is one of the most reactive microfluidic OEM pressure controllers in the market. Less than 150ms is necessary for it to settle to the ordered value, and high stability is ensured afterward. Choose the PX for rapid, precise, and repeatable pressure changes for your liquid handling system.
Why choose pressure controller?
- Better suited to resistive fluidic paths
- Ability to deliver larger volumes of liquid without refill (>1 liter)
- Use one pressure controller and simple valving to deliver multiple solutions
FASTAB Microfluidic patented technology
Fluigent’s patented FASTAB™ technology is a pressure-driven technology with 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 its 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.
Fluigent enables flow rate control with high precision and responsiveness
Combine the PX with a flow sensor and benefit from our expertise in flow rate management. Our patented technology,
An OEM pressure controller and a flow sensor or NIFS can be combined in a very simple way. See schematics above.
Can industrial pressure controllers be used to monitor multiple fluids at different flow rates?
A photonic technology institute tests a variety of lab-on-a-chip systems, the number of flow channels and the required pressures vary from one test to another.
Due to its individually stacked channels adapted for different pressures, the PX series allows for control of the different pressure variations required.
The PX microfluidic OEM pressure controller simplifies fluid management in multiple fluids
, and reduces the time needed to add or remove channels. It provides flexibility without compromising performance (accuracy and response time).
