Pressure & Vacuum controller

The LineUp™ Push-Pull is a standalone controller with the ability to deliver finely regulated pressure or a vacuum through a single outlet over the range of -800 to +1000 mbar. It can be used without a PC or controlled with Fluigent Software Solutions to benefit from control in real-time, protocol automation, graphic displays and custom integration. Combined with a FLOW UNIT it allows for direct control of flow rate.

Main benefits
  • Versatile

    Wide pressure & vacuum range

  • Compact

    Uses minimum bench space

  • Modular

    Easily expand as needed

  • Adaptable

    Use with or without a PC

Features

Expand as needed

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

Wide range

The Push-Pull allows for regulatation of pressure and vacuum down to -800 mbar and up to 1 bar from one single channel.

Local control

Control without a PC using the Push-Pull 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 Push-Pull can maintain continuous, pulseless flow for days without refilling.

Description

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 fastest, most stable and compact system for microfluidics available.

In the base configuration, the system controls 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 Push-Pull capabilities are extended by using Fluigent software to control the system, or to generate time based protocols and reccord data (OxyGEN software)

The Push-Pull 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.

Discover the Push-Pull and see how microfluidics should work

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


“The device is well designed and allows for easy control of my microfluidic chips. What I like most is that you are independent of a computer and can directly control both positive and negative pressure.”

Christoph Trenzinger  – Stratec

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

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


“The Fluigent LineUp series, including the new push-pull pump, enables precise and highly controlled aspiration and respiration of liquids. The set-up allows us to further advance our research in both continuous flow and droplet microfluidics.”

Prof. Jeroen Lammertyn, KU Leuven Belgium – Biosensors group.

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.
