Microfluidic Pressure Based Flow Controller
Syringe pumps are widely used to supply fluid flow for microfluidic systems as they are easy to use and one of the first fluid handling systems available. However, they present limitations. such as slow response times motor steps.
Microfluidic pressure based flow controllers have been shown to give better results due to their high accuracy, stability and fast reponse time.
Fluigent was the first company to introduce microfluidic pressure based flow controllers to handle fluids in microfluidics. Fluid actuation by pressure driven flow control systems consists of pressurizing reservoirs containing the sample that are rapidly injected into a microfluidic device.
Based on the patented FASTABTM technology, our controllers ensure a stable and pulseless flow enhancing accuracy and reproducibility in experiments. The use of pressure allows for a quick response time and reduces cost.
Microfluidic pressure based flow controllers are used in applications where a high degree of control and precision over parameters (size, mixing, flow rates, etc) is required. They offer excellent results in experiments related to droplet generation, ddPCR, cell culture and cell perfusion, organ-on-a-chip studies, synthesis of nanoparticles, microcapsules and microbeads.
