Microfluidic Flow Manager Features
Designed for industrial integration
The OEM Flow Management Unit’s multi-channel design is highly compact, ranging from 1 to 4 or 5 to 8 channels. Since fluids are not in contact with the instrument, there is no routine cleaning, and cross-contamination is drastically reduced. The P-OEM Module design is cost-effective and relies on patented technologies.
A large range of pressure and flow rates
Positive/negative pressure ranges can be applied to different channels of the same microfluidic flow management unit. The optional advanced multi-channel Flow-Rate Control Module Software combined with the FS Series device makes it possible to have full control on flow rates in any coupled multi-channel configuration while keeping the benefits of a pressure actuation.
Benefits of pressure control
In addition to a more stable flow rate, the flow settling time is drastically reduced (< 1 s) in both single or multi-channel configurations, enabling significant reagent cost-savings and saving time.
A tailor-made P-OEM Flow Manager
As each Microfluidic Flow Management Unit is made on-demand, it can fit your custom requirements in the most compact fashion, all integrated and ready-to-use. We work closely with our customer to build a definition file that summarizes the features chosen among:
- Number of channels
- Pressure range of each channel (that can be defined from the flow rates needed and the physical properties of the set up)
- Dimensions of pneumatic tubing at the inlet and the outlet
- Choice of communication interface
- Flowboard integration for flow rate control with our OEM flow sensors
- Switchboard integration for coupling with our OEM valves
- Purge valve
- Pressure source
- Power supply
And other options (please contact us for more information).
How can the Microfluidic Flow Management Unit be used?
Example 1: Custom P-OEM module consisting of a single channel. Only pressure control is available here.
Example 2: Custom P-OEM module consisting of a single channel. A flow sensor from our FS series is added into the fluidic system, allowing for flow rate control.
Example 3: Custom P-OEM module consisting of four channels. Only pressure control is available here.
Example 4: Custom P-OEM module consisting of four channels. For flow rate control, a flow sensor from our FS series is added on each line of the fluidic system, (four flow sensors in total).
Can industrial pressure controllers be used to monitor multiple fluids at different flow rates?
An industrial device manufacturer partnered with Fluigent to transform their benchtop water testing device into a mobile device.
The compact and highly customized dual channel P-OEM module is a completely mobile laboratory that limits human involvement.
The compact size and stable performance of the resulting suitcase-sized microfluidic flow manager unit allows for testing at various points of need.
A digital PCR device manufacturer needs to achieve improved monodispersity and control for their next-generation device.
The P-OEM microfluidic flow management unit, through its accuracy, allowed them to reach the specification needed to achieve optimum fluid delivery and treatment.
The new generation of devices has improved performance with a more consistent size and frequency of droplet generation. The demand for the new generation devices has scaled up since.
An international Organ-on-a-Chip platform developer required a flow control solution for their new drug testing platform.
Based on the development of a recirculation protocol with the client, the P-OEM module was optimized for fast response time and smooth sine wave generation.
The protocol implemented in the microfluidic flow management unit reproduces lung functionality (up to 90 cycles/min).
