Enables mixed pressure range
Pressure Reducer for Mixed Pressure Range Modules[LU-ADP-0001]
The Flow EZ™ Adapt module is a pressure reducer from the LineUp series. Placed between two LineUp Flow EZ™ or LineUp™ Push-Pull pressure-based controllers with different input requirements, it enables users to build a system with many different pressure channel ranges. It reduces the outgoing pressure supply from the module to its left and provides the required pressure supply to the module on its right.
Straight forward set up & use
Uses minimum bench space
Focus on the microscope. No PC is 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.
Features of the pressure regulator
From higher to lower pressure
The Adapt module is always placed with the higher-pressure modules to its left and the lower-pressure modules to its right.
The pressure reducer is a compact module that fits perfectly into your pressure-based controller line. The space needed to integrate it is minimal.
The Adapt module can be combined with flow controllers of any pressure range (7 bar, 2 bar, 25 mbar…)
Why use a pressure reducer?
In the field of microfluidics, achieving stable flow rates is crucial for obtaining reproducible and reliable results. To facilitate this, Fluigent provides pressure-based flow controllers like the LineUp Flow EZ™ and LineUp™ Push-Pull, which provide the necessary control with a very short response time. These pressure controllers can be combined to create a complete set-up, with each controller providing different pressure ranges tailored to different aspects of microfluidic experimentation.
To streamline the process of using multiple LineUp Flow EZ or Push-Pull controllers, and to minimize the need for multiple pressure sources, the Adapt module can be used to create a unified LineUp system. This pressure regulator allows the pressure at the outlet of a Flow EZ to be adjusted before the next Flow EZ is supplied, making it an ideal solution for achieving seamless pressure and flow controls in microfluidics experiments.
Setting up a LineUp system with the Adapt module
The pressure reducer can be used with multiple pressure-based flow controllers if they are to be combined and do not cover the same pressure ranges.
To connect an Adapt module, the procedure is the same as for connecting two Flow EZ: simply place the two modules in series and plug them together using the plug & play feature. One important thing to know is that the LineUp modules must be arranged from left to right with decreasing pressure supply requirements.
The “Chain to Chain Kit” can be used if your setup requires more flexibility on the lab bench.
Each LineUp™ Flow EZ or Push-Pull requires a specific amount of supplied pressure. To build a single LineUp™ system with multiple pressure ranges, use the Adapt to reduce the pressure supply and meet your exact requirements.
