Specification

GET THE BEST RESULTS

  • Reach flow rate targets in less than 0.1 sec
  • Pulseless flow

CONTROL THE FLOW-RATE THE EASY WAY

  • Not sensitive to transient behaviors, including bubbles
  • Run experiments from minutes to over several days
  • Deals with external and internal perturbations (temperature drifts or clogging)
  • Permanently re-adjust its internal model

PERTURBATIONS WILL NO LONGER BE AN ISSUE

  • Minimizes cross-talk between channels
  • Immediately reacts to any perturbation

SAVE TIME WITH AN INTEGRATED SOFTWARE PACKAGE

  • Dedicated panel within MAESFLO™
  • Minimum and maximum flow-rate order limits
  • Bidirectional flow-rate on the same channel

The Flow Rate Control Module

  • a software solution dedicated to microfluidics and nanofluidics, based on an innovative algorithm that automatically controls pressures to reach a set flow-rate
  • Fast and stable flow-rate control
  • Pressure actuated flow benefits with high-precision flow sensors
  • Much faster flow settling time and stability than syringe pumps
  • Useful for simple chip networks to parallel experiments and coupled systems
  • As shown in the figure, applying pressure in the FLUIWELL™ reservoirs creates a liquid flow through a microsystem. As both pressures and flow-rates are measured by the MFCS™-EZ and the Flow-Rate Platform, the Flow-Rate Control Module is able to automatically adjust pressure(s) to reach the flow-rate set-point(s). This operating principle enables one to control flow-rates even in complex microsystems made of coupled channels and keep the benefit of pressure actuation.

  • The FRCM builds the internal model itself to determinate links between pressure and flow-rate
  • Flow-rate set-points are quickly entered in by the user via the MAESFLO™ software. Thanks to the internal model of the microfluidic experiment, the FRCM algorithm automatically calculates and applies the pressures needed to obtain the requested flow-rates
