ANY QUESTIONS?

All reservoirs, except  the custom caps, can handle pressurization under 7bar.

Please be careful with the custom caps. For now, there is no bottle compatible with the custom caps having a pressure resistance equal to 7bar. Fluigent strongly advises you to use customs caps with pressure below 2bar only. If you still have questions, please contact Fluigent support at support@fluigent.com.

Back to FAQs

All your reservoirs are autoclavable.

Back to FAQs

All our Fluiwells are made of Delrin®, our P-CAP are made of anodized aluminum and our custom caps are made of PTFE.

Back to FAQs

Check you have not a pneumatic leakage due to a badly screwed fitting.

Check the O-ring is well positioned on the Fluiwell.

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 […]

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 […]

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.
