Flow EZ™

The Flow EZ™ is the most advanced system available for pressure-based flow control. The compact device stands near the microfluidic device, allowing the user to minimize bench space use without the need of a PC. One can be operational and generate data rapidly. The Flow EZ™ supports reservoir sizes from 2 mL to one liter laboratory bottles. One can use large reservoirs and maintain continuous, pulseless flow for days without refilling.

Features of our microfluidic flow controller

Expand as needed

Combine up to 12 modules as your work flow grows. Each module is a separate and independant pressure channel.

Wide range

The Flow EZ™ range of modules allow for regulatation of pressure / vacuum down to -800 mbar and up to 7 bar.

Local control

Control without a PC using the Flow EZ™ hardware interface with one hand. Focus on the experiment instead of looking at the PC.

Precise volume delivery

When combined with a FLOW UNIT, one can control flow rate directly or deliver dispensed volumes as needed.

Various reservoir sizes

Support reservoir sizes from 2 mL to one liter laboratory bottles. The Flow EZ™ can maintain continuous, pulseless flow for days without refilling.

Description of FLOW EZTM Microfluidic Flow Controller 

Based on our industry leading experience, Fluigent has developed the patented QuadCore pneumatic system: the most advanced microfluidic pumping technology available. It is at the heart of the Fluigent’s next generation performance providing the fastestmost stable, and compact microfluidic system In the base configuration, the system controls the pressure or vacuum, and the liquid flow is a function of system resistance, fluid viscosity, etc. The addition of a FLOW UNIT enables one to control or monitor flow rate as well as measure a dispensed volume. The pressure automatically adjusts in the background to maintain the set flow rate.

When combined with the LINK module, the Flow EZ™ flow controller’s capabilities are extended by using Fluigent software to control the system or to generate time based protocols and record data (OxyGEN software).

The Flow EZ™ microfluidic flow controller modules are available in different pressure and vacuum ranges to provide the optimum level of pressure control and resolution. These can easily be combined to match all application requirements or reconfigure the system for a new experimental design.

“We are really happy with Flugent microfluidics control systems: they are very EZ to use; they are also robust and reliable. We want to highlight in particular the user-friendliness of the software (OxyGEN), and the ease with which one can implement their own third-party programs to embed Fluigent controllers to a bigger setup comprising multiple units from different manufacturers.”

Discover the Flow EZ™ and see how microfluidics should work

With a compact and modular design, the Flow EZ™ allows you to set and benefit quickly from the pressure-based flow control advantages for your experiments.

“We have been using Fluigent’s M-SWITCH, amongst other accessories, including Flow EZ system, flow controllers,  for the past 5 years. We are pleased with its performance, especially the programmability and automation of fluid flow that relieves the user of the need to be present next to the experiments that run for several hours. We found the software interface to be simple to use and could count on the team’s assistance for friendly recommendations and support.”

A response time ten times faster compared to syringe pumps.

With the use of pressure instead of mechanical action, the Flow EZTM microfluidic flow controller gets a responsiveness ten times faster than syringe pumps. A low response time allows users to quickly execute operations such as stop flow and pressure/flow rate steps.

“We try to understand how hypo-osmotic pressure influences cytoskeleton in molecular level via mechanobiology pathway. To confirm the robustness of our experiment results, the experiments should rely on the negative control and experimental protocol which could prevent the phenomena induced by shear stress of medium changing or other mechanical stimulation like pipetting. Fluigent pressure-based pumps with high accuracy enabled us to make a fine-tuning low flow rate system to set up our experimental protocol of medium changing and negative control experiments which convinced us of experimental results induced by osmotic shock. Furthermore, the multi-valves switch creates a clear and efficient system to switch different medium.”

Control flow rate with the benefits of responsive, pulse-free flow

Pulse-free flow is critical for generating high quality and repeatable results. The Microfluidic flow controller integrates the all-new DFC (Direct Flow Control) algorithm. This allows users to set a flow rate directly on the instrument display. The applied pressure will automatically adjust to maintain the flow rate.

“We came to Fluigent when we were building an automated microfluidic platform for screening chemical reactions. Fluigent products are powerful in precise control of the flow conditions and can guarantee the performance of our platform. The pump system is user-friendly and can be extended to complex experimental systems where multiple pumps are needed. The above merits have made our experimental design process smooth and easy.”

“We connect the chips to the Fluigent pump system because that allows us to deliver more complex flow environments […] and visualize live on the microscope.”

Martin Knight | Professor of mechanobiology at Queen Mary university of London

Focus on the microscope. No PC required

Instead of looking at the PC, users can keep their eyes on the microscope, adjusting the control dial with one hand. In this stand-alone configuration, the device allows for pressure or flow rate control and volume dispense, making it ideal for benchtop use.
