ESS™ L-SWITCH™ KIT
P/N = CTQ-KIT-LSW
Designed to help our customers to daily use our L-SWITCH™.
- L-SWITCH™ Plug Delrin 10-32 Coned Blue (x2)
- L-SWITCH™ 10-32 to Female Luer Connector (x2)
- FEP Tubing 1/16” OD x 0.020” ID (1m)
- L-SWITCH™ Fitting 10-32 Coned, for 1/16” OD Tubing
To learn how to connect the M-Switch™ on the Switchboard, go to the ESS™ section.
Concerning the tubing connection:
- Cut the 1/16’’ OD tubing to the desired length, leaving a square-cut face.
- Insert the tubing into a nut until it passes 1.5 – 3mm.
- Insert into a port of L-SWITCH™, twist until it is tightened. You can pull gently the tubing to verify that it is securely connected to the port.
- In order to connect a sample loop to the L-SWITCH™, you will need two nuts and two ferrules, in addition to the sample loop itself (nuts and ferrules are provided with the sample loop).
- Pass one end of the sample loop through a nut.
- Add a ferrule
- Hold the set together and insert it into a port of the L-SWITCH™ (for example, port 1 here).
- Twist until the set is tightened. You can pull gently the sample loop to verify that it is securely connected.
- Repeat these steps for the other end of the sample loop to connect it to another port of the L-SWITCH™ (for example port 4 here).
Many microfluidic applications require expensive solutions to be injected at a controlled flow-rate into a microfluidic system, such as cell cultures, PCR processes, cell injections or simulation of blood capillaries with a controlled minimal mechanical stress.
Because CTCs detection and labelling need a very precise and smooth flow control, Fluigent MFCS™ associated with the Flow-Rate Control Module and the ESS™ platform, was the designated choice to be able to efficiently control the flows of all the solutions and samples.
The use of water-in-oil droplets in microfluidics in high-throughput screening is rapidly gaining acceptance. The main application areas currently involve screening cells as well as genetic material for various mutations or activity. Here the aim is to isolate single DNA molecules and analyze the enzymes and proteins resulting from their expression.
