LabSmith Partners with Hummingbird Nano

By Mike Zecchino on May 15, 2020.

LabSmith has partnered with US-based Hummingbird Nano to distribute the company’s innovative circular channel, helical mixer microfluidic chips.

Hummingbird Nano Microfluidic Chips Distributed by LabSmith

Hummingbird Nano’s mixing chips feature 280 µm diameter circular channels and a 5-stage helical mixing chamber for smooth flow and fast mixing. The chips include integrated 1/16″ OD PTFE tubing for easy interface with LabSmith’s microfluidic routing components.Hummingbird Nano x-mixer helical channel mixing chip for low dead volume mixing with LabSmith uProcess microfluidic components

New uEP01 Electrophoresis Power Module

By LabSmith on September 17, 2019.

The LabSmith uEP01-300 is an extremely compact, fully programmable high voltage supply for controlling electrophoresis and gel electrophoresis setups.

Measuring just 8.1 cm (3.2 in.) long, the uEP01 can be breadboard mounted and integrated easily with other experimental equipment. The power module can provide constant voltage to 300V, constant current to 0.25A, or constant power up to 15W. Used in conjunction with LabSmith’s pressure sensors and temperature sensors, the uEP01 can also operate in constant pressure or temperature modes.

The uEP01 is part of the uProcess platform, which includes flexible scripting software as well as hardware products for constructing and automating microfluidic systems. uProcess control software enables the uEP01 to be integrated into complete electrophoretic systems. Multiple modules can be operated together for fully-independent, multi-channel voltage control in both research and OEM applications.

New 8-Position Selector Valve

By LabSmith on May 1, 2019.

The AV801 8-position selector valve provides automated routing of microfluidic volumes. At 6.6 cm (2.6 in) high, the AV801 microfluidcs valve is a fraction of the size of available selector valves, making it ideal for microfluidics research and OEM applications.

The compact AV801 has eight selector ports and one common port. Extremely small swept volume minimizes waste and enable high throughput. Fast, reliable geared switching ensures long life.

LabSmith’s AV801 valves are constructed with either PCTFE or Vespel for wetted materials for use with a wide variety of chemicals. LabSmith’s CapTite™ one-piece fittings provide leak-free connections to 1/32” OD, 1/16″ OD or 360 micron OD capillary.

LabSmith’s miniaturized 4VM valve manifold provides control for up to four selector valves, with single-cable connections. The breadboard-mounted 4VM is far smaller than other valve controllers, offers additional savings in cost and size for OEM applications.

The AV801 selector valve is the newest component of LabSmith’s  uProcess platform, which simplifies construction and control of microfluidic systems. Automated uProcess components include syringe pumps, pressure and temperature sensors, selector valves, temperature controllers and more. Microsoft Windows®-based uProcess software provides straightforward control of all devices. With uProcess users can generate automated scripts to control both simple setups or complex lab automation.

All uDevices are compatible with LabSmith’s CapTite™ microfluidic interconnect products for building and rebuilding micro- and nano-fluidic circuits. The addition of the AV801 is part of LabSmith’s continued initiative to provide easy to use, inter-compatible microfluidics products for lab and OEM applications.

LABSMITH Products Now Distributed in South Korea by Revodix, Inc.

 

Livermore, CA (August 27, 2014) – LabSmith,Inc., a leading microfluidics lab equipment manufacturer, has formalized an agreement with Revodix, Inc. to distribute LabSmith’s products within South Korea. This partnership gives South Korean scientists in engineering, chemistry, and life sciences access to an expansive range of tools for lab-on-chip experiments.  Revodix, headquartered in Gyeonggi-do, 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 Revodix product range, adding  a wide range of tools for innovative laboratory electronic, visualization and microfluidic solutions.

 

REVODIX CEO, Mr. Shin, describes the South Korean market in microfluidics for life sciences as growing rapidly. “The government of South Korea and local industry are investing heavily in 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 and are sophisticated enough to enable researchers to perform and automate cutting edge research. Some LabSmith components are suitable for OEM applications in medical devices. We are excited to add LabSmith’s products to the products we offer  our customers.”

 

LabSmith president and CEO, Kirsten Pace agrees, stating “The South Korean investment in R&D at the universities, government labs, and industry, creates an opportunity for the adoption and improvement of micro- and nano-technologies, particularly as applied to life sciences. As scientists move to platforms that leverage the advantages of small dimensional and volume scales, LabSmith tools can remove obstacles to their success.”

 

By partnering, REVODIX and LabSmith can provide South Korean scientists with something more valuable than merely products – local service and support.  “REVODIX 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 REVODIX can offer our customers in South Korea, “states Yolanda Fintschenko, Ph.D., Director of Sales, Marketing and New Technologies at LabSmith.
