MFCS™-EZ flow control solution

MICROFLUIDIC FLOW CONTROL SYSTEM EZ

The MFCS™-EZ is a modular microfluidic flow controller. 4 channels with different pressures have been designed to fit with high precision operations in microfluidic experiments. By using the FASTAB™ microfluidic patented technology, this instrument generates a constant flow rate that allows for experimental reliability and repeatability.

Perfect for your setup:

  • ideal flow control
  • high quality manufacturer
  • works with other fluigent components
  • flow control solution for different setups

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.

You can use non-corrosive, non-toxic or explosive gas (air, N2, Ar, CO2, …).

Back to FAQs

  • The right value you have to set is written on the nameplate at the MFCS™-EZ back. In this example, it is 1300mbar
MFCS faq 2

Turn the scroll wheel of the black manual regulator to adjust the pressure on the MFCS™-EZ display according to this value.

RELATED APPLICATIONS FOR FLOW CONTROL

cell-impedance

IMPEDANCE SPECTROSCOPY ON CHIP FOR CHARACTERIZATION AND COUNTING OF CELLS AND PARTICLES

Information, such as cell size, type discrimination and other quantitative characteristic information can be measured for biological systems using impedance spectroscopy. Our electrical impedance spectroscopy platform (or EISP) offers the advantage of acquiring this information from cells, or particles such as beads, without the need to label them, as would be needed for characterization using […]

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.

cell-aspiration

FLUID RECIRCULATION FOR CELL PERFUSION WITH REDUCED SHEAR STRESS

Many microfluidic applications require expensive flow control 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.
