BUBBLE TRAP

In-line bubble removal in aqueous stream

The Bubble Trap (P/N = CTQ-006BT) from Fluigent is a device suitable for aqueous stream flows, perfectly fit to remove air bubbles to prevent :

  • biological sample damaging
  • sensors and chromatography columns drying
  • shear stress instabilities
  • cytotoxicity
  • volume sampling errors

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Dimensions: 3.2×3.2×2.2cm3
  • Materials: PVC and PTFE
  • Maximum pressure: 2bar
  • Low internal volume: 115 µL

 

 

FEATURES

  • In-line bubble removal in aqueous stream
  • Robust design
  • Easy change of membranes (2 already included)
  • Chemicaly and biologically compatible materials: PVC body and PTFE membranes
  • Suitable with our standard 1/4”-28 Fittings
  • Suitable flow-rates up to 5mL/min

BENEFITS

  • Avoids air bubbles near your cells
  • Steadies the flow-rate for your droplet generation
  • Can be used at the inlet and outlet of any system
  • Consumable membranes to avoid contaminations
  • Suited for 1/16” or 1/32” OD tubing to avoid additional fittings

OTHER

  • Not autoclavable
  • Not for use with organic solvents (risk of leakage).
  • Always push liquids towards the trap
  • Membrane lifetime strongly depends on the kind of fluid used.
  • For pure water, the lifetime may be several months or years. Buffer solutions reduce lifetime and it is advisable to flush the unit with de-ionized/distilled water after use to prevent salt crystals forming.

HIGH THROUGHPUT SINGLE CELL ANALYSIS

Individual cell heterogeneity within a population has invalidated historic classification methods based on macroscopic considerations and given rise to new evaluation techniques based on single cell transcriptional signature. In this context, thanks to high throughput screening capacities, easy fluid handling and reduced costs related to device miniaturization, microfluidics has emerged as a powerful tool for […]

This is custom heading element

Micropipette aspiration is a powerful non-invasive technique to evaluate how biomechanical properties of single cells or tissue govern cell shape, cell response to mechanic stimuli, transition from nontumorigenic to tumorigenic state or morphogenesis. The Fluigent MFCS™-EZ and Flow EZ™ pressure controllers are particularly suited for this method since it requires applying forces ranging from 10pN […]
