Fluigent was the first company to introduce pressure-driven flow control to the microfluidic research market, as opposed to conventional syringe and peristaltic pumps. As one of the pioneers in microfluidics, we have set the standard in microfluidic control and strive to stay in the forefront of the science. We created content on microfluidics, microfluidic devices, comparison and more to share with the scientific community our knowledge and expertise on this important and relevant growing technology.
Microfluidics is the science of manipulating and controlling fluids, usually in the range of microliters (10-6) to picoliters (10-12), in networks of channels with dimensions from tens to hundreds of micrometers. This discipline takes its origins in the early 1990’s and has grown exponentially. It is viewed as an essential tool for life science research or in a larger way in biotechnologies.
In this section, you will have access to all the information regarding Microfluidic definitions and advantages, how to choose a microfluidic chip and the History of Microfluidics.
To perform effective experiments in microfluidics, one needs to be aware of the different volumetric control technologies available to use the most suitable way to control microfluidic flows. This section will give you all the information regarding Microfluidic Volume Definition and Resistance, but also on the Strengths and Weaknesses of the different flow control technologies existing on the market.
In this section, you will have access to all the information regarding the Microfluidic Stability and Responsiveness of the pressure based microfluidic and to a comparison between multiples flow control technologies on the market.
Many national and internationally funded projects bring together science and innovation. These projects cover a large number of subjects. Fluigent takes part in several European and French funded programs to provide expertise and resources in microfluidics and related applications.
To help our clients choose the right instrument, Fluigent has designed a calculator to estimate the resistance of most microfluidic setups. Detailing your setup will determine which pressure range to work with and the recommended microfluidic pump.
