MICROFLUIDIC PRESSURE CONTROLLER
See how microfluidic experiments should work! Complete systems allow one to start experiments in minutes. Increased versatility and ease of use, spend more time on result, not cumbersome setups.
MICROFLUIDIC FLOW CONTROL
A bidirectional microfluidic flow sensor interfaced with our software, allows for direct control or monitoring of flow rates. Available in five models with different flow-rate ranges.
A hub managing the communication between Fluigent software and up to 8 FLOW UNITS per FLOWBOARD. Computer connection and power supply with a single USB plug. For use as a free standing flow monitoring platform, of for flow control with the MFCS series.
Specifically, designed caps for pressurization in microfluidic experiments. Autoclavable for sterilization, they can be used with different types of tubing and are suitable for long term experiments.
The ESS™ platform is a versatile fluid handling platform for directing fluid flow that can be automated using Fluigent software. It includes three complementary types of bidirectional valves (the 2-SWITCH™, the L-SWITCH™ and the M-SWITCH™), as well as a unique communication hub, the SWITCHBOARD.
This system can be controlled by Fluigent software or your own by using the SDK toolkit.
The different valves can be used for many different protocols. For sorting, the 2-SWITCH™ is recommended whereas for recirculation, it is better to use a L-SWITCH™. For sequential injections, the M-SWITCH™ is the most suitable product.
The M-Switch™ is a bidirectional 11-port / 10-position valve for injection or selection of up to 10 different fluids controlled by our software.
The new 2-Switch™ is a compact and easy to use 3-port/2-position microfluidic valve. Using standard connectors it can be integrated to any microfluidic setup. Its unique design allows one to stack multiple 2-Switches™ together to save space on the benchtop.
A high-performance surfactant suited for production of highly monodispersed and stable microdroplets. Provided at 2% in 3M™ Novec™ 7500 (HFE) fluorinated oil, dSURF allows highly monodispersed droplet formation and long-term stability in challenging conditions such as dPCR and cell encapsulation experiments.

Application packages & platforms
Fluigent has joined with BEOnchip to offer complete solutions combining innovative, robust, and easy-to-use chips with high-performance instruments.
Organ-on-chip study is an emerging field that brings substantial benefits compared to conventional cell culture. In many labs, considerable effort is put in choosing the right chip design, but the impact of flow control is still undetermined. It is our intent to create awareness on the importance of flow and its effects on ones studies.
Applications that require switching between multiple solutions (such as samples or buffers) may be time-consuming and tedious as they typically require many manual operations. Aria is designed to replace manual procedures such as pipetting or manual switching. This automated solution for cellular perfusion or timed injection protocols allows one to automate delivery up to 10 different solutions into a chamber or microfluidic chip by following user defined protocols.
Fluigent and Bioptechs have partnered to offer a complete solution for high-quality multiplexed imaging. It combines a high-quality flow cell with a high-performance perfusion instrument. The flexibility of the platform allows to automate any complex protocol with multiple fluid deliveries for imaging.
For optimized Drop-Seq experiments in Next Generation Sequencing. The Fluigent Drop-Seq package allow better reproducibility and control of both single cells and beads encapsulation.
- Gain time: less than 1 minute to obtain droplet compare to macosco few minute
- Avoid losing reagents (cells or beads) during transition time
- Have better control and avoid the problems that could appear with syringe pump. Such as backflow of the beads inside the cells channel which could modify drastically the experiment.
