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.
MICROFLUIDIC AUTOMATION TOOL
Automate time-based protocols
- Simple to use “drag and drop” graphic interface
- Rapid design (and storage) of complex pressure and flow-rate, and valve timing methods
- Suitable for long term cell perfusion and other protocols
Fluigent Microfluidic Automation Tool (MAT) is a software package for developing and running time based microfluidic protocols using Fluigent’s pressure pumps, flow rate control system and valves. It allows one to easily create protocols for complete automated experiments, including a wide range of operations and loops as well as TTL input/output.
FLUIGENT A-I-O SOFTWARE
Real-time microfluidic device control
- 1 click to change from from pressure to flow-rate control
- 20ms datalogging/sampling frequency
- automatic instrument detection
Fluigent’s New All-in-One (A-i-O) software is a tool for real-time control of pressures and flow rates in microfluidic experiments using Fluigent pressure pumps and flow control sytems. Its modular interface is designed for independent and easy monitoring of all parameters for each channel connected.
LineUP™ Series Software Development Kit (SDK) allows you to fully integrate LineUP™ series devices in all software applications. It has been declined in several languages including LabVIEW, C++, C# and Python.
Application packages & platforms
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 has partnered with Micronit to offer a versatile fully integrated organ-on-a-chip kit which reproduce numerous characteristics of the in vivo environment.
The Fluigent/Micronit organ-on-a-chip kit focuses on modeling the main biochemical and biophysical features of the native environment of cells in order to induce their growth and differentiation as functional tissues. Air-liquid interface, flow induced shear stress, mechanical stimulation, biochemical gradient, cell-cell coculture have been reported to significantly improve the functionality of in vivo models. All these parameters are controlled by the microfluidic system.
The Fluigent PLGA particle station is a robust, high-quality system for producing monodispersed PLGA microparticles. The station has the flexibility to vary particle size in less than a second without interrupting particle production. Its performance results from the combination of Fluigent high-precision LineUpTM microfluidic pumps and the RayDrop device designed by Secoya, a breakthrough technology for high-quality particle production.
