JFE Shoji Electronics, a subsidiary of JFE Shoji Trade Corporation, headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, is a distributor providing end-to-end solutions with tools to support customer’s flow chemistry and biology applications.

LabSmith, Inc., based in Livermore, California, expands the JFE Shoji Electronics product range, adding a wide range of tools for innovative laboratory electronic, visualization and microfluidic solutions. Seika Corporation, LabSmith’s first distribution partner in Japan, will continue to serve the Japanese market with the exclusive distribution of the LabSmith LC-series logic controllers.

JFE Shoji Electronics Corporation chief manager, Mr. Terunori Ogasawara, describes the Japanese market in microfluidics for life sciences as growing rapidly. “The government of Japan and local industry are investing heavily in life sciences R&D. Many working in the life sciences see an opportunity to develop new technology for biomedical research and diagnostics by leveraging the microfluidics platform. LabSmith products simplify these experiments. LabSmith tools have the sophistication to enable researchers to perform and automate cutting edge research. LabSmith components used for R&D and prototyping are also suitable for OEM applications in medical devices. We are offer products with such versatility to our customers.”

LabSmith president and CEO, Kirsten Pace agrees, stating “The Japanese investment in R&D across universities, government labs, and industry, creates an opportunity for the adoption and improvement of micro- and nano-technologies for life sciences applications. As life science research leaders move to lab-on-a-chip platforms that leverage the advantages of automation with small dimensional and volume scales, LabSmith tools can remove barriers to their success.”

By partnering, JFE Shoji Electronics and LabSmith can provide Japanese scientists with something more valuable than merely products – local service and support. “JFE Shoji Electronics has both a local presence and a commitment to customer service including product demonstrations, installation and support. I am impressed with both the product knowledge and the application support that JFE Shoji Electronics can offer our customers in Japan, “states Yolanda Fintschenko, Ph.D., Director of Sales, Marketing and New Technologies at LabSmith.

Now Connect LabSmith Syringe Pumps Directly to 1/32″ Tubing

By LabSmith on April 17, 2014.

No more adapters! Connect 1/32″ o.d. tubing directly to the SPS01 syringe pump using a T132-100 one-piece fitting. Available for syringe glass volumes of 20 microliters and 100 microliters.

Reliable Delivery, Remarkable Size

Only 100 mm long, the SPS01 syringe pump (Figure 3) uses a fraction of the space and power required by other syringe pumps. The SPS01 delivers volumes from 5 to 100 μl, with resolution as low as 8 nl.

Low Dead Volume, Easy Cleaning

The SPS01’s unique syringe glass design directly connects to 360 µm OD capillary and 1/16” OD tubing via LabSmith’s CapTite connector for very low dead volumes. The Delrin® housing allows syringes to be easily removed and replaced, so a single pump can provide a wide range of volumes. All wetted surfaces can be easily removed for sterilization and autoclaving.

Coordinated Fluid Delivery

LabSmith SPS01 syringe pumps are fully programmable for coordinated fluid delivery and sequencing. An Electronic Interface Board (EIB) is required for operation; a single EIB can simultaneously control up to 10 uDevices (valves and syringe pumps), or can control many more sequentially.

Included uProcess™ software makes it easy to create programs to operate syringes and valves and pressure sensors.
