Microfluidic size cell sorting package[ESORT-PCK01]
A complete package for starting size sorting experiments
The microfluidic cell sorting package allows sorting cells or particles according to their size using inertial and Dean drag forces. Fluigent has joined with microfluidic ChipShop to provide a solution with well-designed microfluidic devices and excellent flow control for sorting experiments.
Up to 3 mL/min
- Passive sorting
No external source required
Up to 8 cells/particles sizes sorted per experiment
With this package, you have all the components necessary to start cell sorting experiments
We built the package with the right pressure controllers, microfluidic chips, tubing and fittings to make sure you have an the most optimized and versatile system
We can adapt the package to fulfill your needs
Sorting working principle
Particles that flow in a spiral microchannel with a rectangular cross-section experience a combination of Dean drag forces and an inertial lift. The position at which particles of different sizes equilibrate depends on the ratio of these two forces. This results in several particle streams that are size-dependents, and that can be extracted by designing appropriate outlets (see figure on the right).
Control flow rate with the benefits of responsive, pulse free flow
Pulse-free flow is critical for generating high quality and repeatable results. The Flow EZ™ integrates the all-new DFC (Direct Flow Control) algorithm which allows the user to set a flow rate directly on the instrument display. The applied pressure will automatically adjust to maintain the flow rate.
With the use of pressure instead of mechanical action, the Flow EZTM gets a responsiveness ten times faster than syringe pumps. A low response time allows one to quicky execute operations such as stop flow and pressure/flow rate steps.
