OEM Microfluidic modules

The OEM Microfluidic modules are a range of OEM products for flow control and fluid handling in microfluidic and nanofluidic applications. Dedicated for industrial precision microfluidic applications they can economically replace conventional syringe pumps or peristaltic pumps.

Main features:

  • Highly customizable through numerous options
  • Adapted to industrial usage
  • Quality and application expertise
  • Compact solution

Flow management solutions

The multi-channel design is highly compact, ranging from 1 to 4 channels for the P-OEM series and from 5 to 8 channels for the PL-OEM series. Since fluids are not in contact with the instrument, there is no routine cleaning and cross-contamination is drastically reduced.

Positive or Negative pressure ranges can be applied on different channels of the same module.

The optional advanced multi-channel Flow-Rate Control Module Software combined with the Flow Sensor Unit device makes it possible to have full control on flow-rates in any coupled multi-channel configuration, while keeping the benefits of pressure actuation.

The flow settling time is drastically reduced (<1sec) in both single or multi-channel configurations, enabling significant reagent cost-savings and time-saving.

The P-OEM Module design is cost-effective and it relies on the patented technologies

Fluid switching solutions

S-OEM_Microfluidic_Switch

S-OEM Series

Our S-OEM series is dedicated to flow switches outside of your microfluidic device. It is composed of an electronic board and 2 kinds of valves:

  • 2-SWITCH™-OEM: A 3 way/2 position valve
  • M-SWITCH™-OEM: A 11 way/10 position valve

It is possible to connect up to 4 M-Switch™-OEM and 8 2-Switch™-OEM to the electronic board.

2-SWITCH

A bidirectional 3-port / 2-way valve, controlled either by our ESS™ control software or manually as a stand alone device

  • Chemical and biological compatibility (wetted materials: teflon)
  • Low internal volume: 12?L
  • No heating
  • Use as a stand alone system or software controlled (full automation)
  • Ability to connect up to 8 2-SWITCH™ on the same SWITCHBOARD
  • No dead volume
  • Easy identification of the positions thanks to indicator lights

M-SWITCH

A bidirectional 11-port / 10-way valve for injection or  selection of up to 10 different fluids controlled by our ESS™ control software

  • Chemical & biological compatibility (wetted materials: custom polymer RPC 7)

Flow-rate measurement & control solutions

F-OEM Series

Our F-OEM series is dedicated to flow-rate monitoring and control (thanks to FRCM Flow-Rate Control Module). It is composed of an electronic board and of independent flow sensors. It is possible to connect up to 8 flow sensors per electronic board. We have a large range of flow-sensors ranging from 0-1.5µl/min to 0-5ml/min.
