Straight forward set up & use
SWITCH EZ, Microfluidic Valve Controller[ELUSEZ]
Automated Valve Controller
The LineUp™ SWITCH EZ is a microfluidic valve controller that provides power and PC control for Fluigent’s microfluidic valves. The module has 6 ports and can be combined with other LineUp™ products for a complete and compact system for benchtop use. Connected valves can be controlled or programmed by using the local control directly on the device or by creating an automated protocol to automate valve actuation timing.
Uses minimum bench space
Local & simultaneous control
Control with or without a PC
Features of Switch EZ Microfluidic Valve Controller
The SWITCH EZ can be used without a computer to control Fluigent’s microfluidic valves. Connect the valves to the dedicated ports and use the local control to actuate them.
Control pressure or flow rate without a PC using the LineUp™ hardware interface. This allows users to quickly actuate connected valves and even order simultaneous requests.
Software and flow control
Combine the SWITCH EZ with any LineUp™ controller and a LINK to benefit from OxyGEN software. Control in real-time and automate valve actuation timing.
How to easily actuate or automate microfluidic valves
Fluigent offers a wide range of microfluidic valves that are precisely and accurately matched to the experiment being performed. This gives users the possibility to use multiple valves for automatic liquid injection, work with very short switching time, and create a low internal volume with high chemical compatibility.
Our microfluidic valve controller allows users to control fluid sequences during an experiment, enabling automation of the process. The controller also has the ability to easily recreate processes that fit your specific needs, creating a complete valve automation.
The module has 6 ports and can be combined with other LineUp™ products to have a complete and compact system for benchtop use. Connected valves can be controlled or programmed by using the local control directly on the device or by creating a protocol in real-time to automate valve actuation timing.
The LineUp™ SWITCH EZ microfluidic valve controller can be used for:
- Perfusion: the rotational valve enables the sequential injection of up to 10 different liquids.
- Injections of a defined volume metered through a loop.
- Recirculation: using two t-connectors and two 2-switches, it is possible to flow alternatively from reservoir A to B and B to A by circulating through the chip in the same direction. This is useful for long cell culture experiments.
Focus on the microscope. No PC is required
Instead of looking at the PC, users can keep their eyes on the microscope and adjust the control dial with one hand. In this stand-alone configuration, the microfluidic valve controller allows for pressure or flow rate control and volume dispense, making it ideal for benchtop use.
