Microfluidic In-Line Pressure Sensor[EIPS]
- New release
The PRESSURE UNIT is a stand-alone microfluidic in-line pressure sensor for continuous measurement of pressure in a fluidic path. The product line can detect values over the range of -1000 mbar (-15 psi) to 7000 mbar (100 psi). The sensor can be directly connected to a PC via USB, and can display measurements in real time on the Fluigent OxyGEN software interface. Users can output values for custom software applications using the Software Development Kit.
With our microfluidic in-line pressure detector, you can accurately monitor and control pressure in a stable, pulseless and responsive manner.
Three different High Precision Pressure Sensors are available (S, M, and XL) depending on the pressure range you want to measure. This microfluidic in-line pressure sensor is perfect for gases and liquids and can be easily plugged (inline) into your microfluidic setup with 1/16" OD tubing.
Wide range of detection
No need for a hub
Uses minimum bench space
Features of the Pressure Unit
Wide range of detection
The PRESSURE UNIT is a microfluidic in-line pressure sensor that allows the accurate measurement of pressure and vacuum within the range -1000 mbar to 7 bar. Our pressure detector or disposes of a wide range of reading flow rates.
Display in real-time
Graphically monitor the pressure measurement using Fluigent’s OxyGEN software. Our dedicated software and its allows users to control the data acquisition directly on a pc.
No hub is needed
Directly plug the sensor to a PC and benefit from a compacte solution for pressure detection. The microfluidic in-line pressure sensor can be plugged anywhere (inline) in your microfluidic setup.
Users can achieve precise pressure control by combining any microfluidic pressure detector with our pressure controller system.
How to use the pressure sensor in my microfludic setup ?
The PRESSURE UNIT is a stand-alone pressure sensor allowing a fast and accurate measure of the pressure applied in a fluidic path. To do this, connect the in-line pressure sensor to the computer using a USB connection. You will need the connectics and tubing kit provided by Fluigent to integrate the pressure detector into the fluidic path. It’s important to note that the fluid can flow in either direction, indicated by the arrow on the PRESSURE UNIT or in the opposite direction, without affecting the accuracy of the pressure measurements.
To monitor the Fluigent pressure controllers, you can either use the LineUpTM local control or use the Fluigent dedicated software on a computer. In both cases, you will be able to directly access the measured pressure in the fluidic path by the in-line pressure sensor through the Fluigent OxyGEN software interface.
