FASTAB™ MICROFLUIDIC PATENTED TECHNOLOGY

  • Legacy microfluidic control systems such as syringe, peristaltic or piston pumps are poorly adapted to the manipulation of fluid volumes in the sub microliter range, leading to long equilibration times, irreproducibility and pulsation.
  • To solve this, Fluigent developed the patented FASTAB™ technology: a pressure driven technology that has no moving parts and includes an advanced feedback control algorithm to maintain precise pressure control.
  • Based on the FASTAB™ technology, the MFCS™ series are compatible with any microfluidic application, from simple droplet generation to organ-on-a-chip experiments.

RELATED APPLICATIONS

cell-aspiration

FLUID RECIRCULATION FOR CELL PERFUSION WITH REDUCED SHEAR STRESS

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.

micropipette-cell

SEQUENTIAL FLUID INJECTION & DELIVERY WITH PULSE-FREE FLOW

Many microfluidic applications require switching between multiple solutions (such as samples or buffers) while maintaining a constant flow-rate during the course of their experiment. In this application, one MFCS™-EZ pressure channel is connected via a manifold to ten separate vials containing different aqueous solutions.

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.
