  • Easy to set up and use
foot-switch fluigent
  • The Fluigent Foot Switch allows hand-free operation to start/stop the flow or switch configurations of the MFCS™-EZ.
  • The Foot Switch is directly connected to a USB port on your computer and can be used to change pressure configurations within MAESFLO™.
  • It can be used to switch from one pressure configuration to another or start or stop the flow.
  • This can be useful when changing droplet parameters, for  cell culture, even during washing steps or whenever the experiment requires additional attention.
  • Size: 11x7x3.5cm3
  • Weight: 275g
  • Power supply: USB
  • Materials: Steel

TECHNOLOGY

Simple USB port communication. It is a substitution keyboard shortcuts within MAESFLO™.

droplet-microfluidics

DROPLET AND PARTICLE MANIPULATION USING ELECTROPHORETIC FLOW CONTROL

Many microfluidic applications are developed based on concepts relying on electrodes, exploiting the electrical properties of samples to sort or separate them, generate electro-osmotic flows, manipulate particles, perform electrochemical detection etc. One example of this is electronic paper, where the electrophoretic displacement of titanium dioxide particles in a dark hydrocarbon oil solution allows the formation […]

CTC-capture

AUTOMATED RARE CELLS CAPTURE AND LABELLING

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.  […]

HIGH-THROUGHPUT CELL DNA SCREENING USING DIGITAL PCR

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. […]
