WHAT IS MICROTAS?

Each year the Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (MicroTas) addresses scientists and engineers working in miniaturized systems for chemistry and life science who are interested in keeping current in the areas as well as to share knowledge with other professionals.

MicroTAS 2019 gathered companies and researchers to report research results from multiple fields such as microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology and integration. It also offered plenary talks as well as contributed oral presentations and posters. Over 900 worldwide scientists and professionals engaged in research on/and the use of integrated microsystems were present to attend this 23rd edition!

µTAS 2019 continued the series of Conferences that are the premier forum for reporting research results in microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology, integration, materials and surfaces, analysis and synthesis, and detection technologies for life science and chemistry. Following Kaohsiung, TAIWAN in 2018, this meeting took place in a new exciting hub for nano, bio, and medical research: the International Conference will be held at Congress Center in Basel, SWITZERLAND from 27 – 31 October 2019.

Our Talk : "New applications in pressure control
and droplet generation in microfluidics"

Arranged by the conference, the industrial stage presentation of 20 minutes was the perfect place to introduce our latest innovations in microfluidics, microfabrication, nanotechnology and integration for life science and chemistry field.

This year we have been presenting “New applications in pressure control and droplet generation in microfluidics“, discussing our latest innovations, at the cutting edge of the pressure-driven flow control technology.

Live demonstration: Pneumatic actuation with Fluigent's new P-Switch

This year, we had a live demonstration  showing the advantages of the NEW P-Switch. It is a new addition to  the LineUp series, which allows one to choose 2 different input pressures (for instance positive or negative) and alternate them between up to 8 outlets as needed. It allows for precise control of the pressure applied to internal microfluidic valves such as Quake valves.

Demo_PSwitch_Microtas_2019Biological or chemical applications requiring on-chip switching can be improved with the P Switch EZ. For instance, it can enable one  to perform :

  • Sequential and very small injection of different liquids
  • On-demand droplet generation
  • Quick changing of solutions/media
  • Easier sample manipulation for blood

OUR NEW PRODUCTS AND SOLUTIONS

Fluigent was the first company to introduce pressure-driven flow control to the microfluidic research market, as opposed to conventional syringe and peristaltic pumps. We aim to reduce the overall cost of experiments, experimental time and decrease sample and reagent consumption. We keep working on new solutions to achieve these goals. This year we introduced several of them:

  • Aria: New automated solution for cellular perfusion or timed injection protocols which allows one to automate delivery up to 10 different solutions into a chamber or microfluidic chip by following user defined protocols.

  • P-Switch: It is an innovation of the LineUp series, which allows to choose 2 input pressures (for instance positive or negative) and switch them between 8 outlets as needed.
  • Push-Pull:  A new module of “Flow EZ” which allows to choose in a range from negative to positive pressure.

See you next year!

The next International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences will hold at the Palm Springs Convention Center in California, USA from 4-8 October 2020.

2016

The Twentieth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2016) has been held at the Convention Center Dublin in Dublin, IRELAND from 9 – 13 October 2016.

France Hamber, our managing director of Fluigent GMBH, Simon Renard and our President of Fluigent, Inc, Robert Pelletier were there to exchange with you on your expertise in microfluidics and on your experience with Fluigent’s products.

2015

The Nineteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2015) has been held at Hwabaek International Convention Center (HICO), Gyeongju, KOREA from October 25 – 29, 2015.

This year was the occasion for you to discover our first Fluigent Game: The microfluidic PacMan.

2014

The Eighteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2014) has been held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, Texas, USA from October 26 – 30, 2014.

MicroTAS Texas was the occasion for the opening of our new USA branch to participate in such a big event.

2013

The Seventeenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2013) has been held at the Messe Freiburg in Freiburg, GERMANY from 27 – 31 October 2013.

2013 was also a rewarding experience for our company because of the increase of exchanges we had with you.

2012

The Sixteenth International Conference on Miniaturized Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (µTAS 2012) has been held at the Okinawa Convention Center in Okinawa, Japan from October 28 to November 1, 2012.

It was the occasion for us to learn a lot from your experience with Fluigent products. It was also the occasion to launch our latest innovationaion at the time: the MFCS™-EZ and the ESS™
