Reliable fluid routing fittings and fixtures
LabSmith’s breadboard-mounted interconnects, reservoirs, pumps and valves make it easy to build microfluidic and nanofluidic setups. Then, take them apart and reuse the components, time and time again. It’s the easy, affordable way to experiment, prototype, or design analytic devices.
CapTite™ reusable components provide worry-free fluid routing and long life over multiple runs—even at high pressures. Use CapTite fittings to construct fluid circuits with 360μm capillary, 1/32” & 1/16” tubing. All components are designed for low dead volumes, easy cleaning, and long life over multiple runs.
Coordinated automation, sensors and software
LabSmith’s uProcess™ system is a groundbreaking platform for automating microfluidic flows. Coordinate valves, pumps, sensors, voltage supplies and other components for fast, straightforward automation—at a small fraction of the cost of custom, single-use components.
uProcess software coordinates and automates microfluidic systems. Use uProcess’s simple scripting to integrate dozens of devices into simple or complex microfluidic systems— without laboring over custom code.
uProcess is the only system that coordinates all aspects of your experiment, including flow, pressure, temperature and voltage. You can even integrate uProcess with our SVM microscopes to trigger video capture of events based on live circuit parameters.
Microfluidic chips and accessories
LabSmith is the US distributor for microfluidic chips and accessories from Microfluidic ChipShop. Whether you need one unique chip for a prototype system, or dozens of standard chips for ongoing research, LabSmith has what you need, in stock, and a quick delivery away—as well as the world-to-chip components to connect them to your microfluidics circuits.
Impressive, affordable microscopy for microfluidics
The SVM is a research-grade, inverted fluorescence video microscope for microfluidics and microbiology. This unique, highly versatile microscope excels precisely where it counts: acquiring high-quality experimental data and images, quickly.
The inverted design with motorized traverse ensures that biological systems remain unperturbed. Image-based “soft triggers” make the SVM perfect for µTAS prototypes and miniature process automation. An extensive array of filter, camera, illumination, objective and analysis options let you tailor the system for your research.
The SVM includes imaging software with an impressive feature set. Particle Counting Probes let you count and characterize particles in real-time, at up to 5000 particles per frame, based on absorption, scattering, refraction or fluorescence.
Agile, high voltage power supplies
LabSmith’s fully-programmable high voltage power supplies support a wide range of electrically driven flow applications. Eight-channel HVS High Voltage Sequencers let you apply up to 8000V and rapidly switch channels through different modes and settings based on real-time calculations, measurements, or programmed sequences. With innovative voltage/current supply and sensing, in a ground-breaking sequencing environment, the HVS448 integrates your entire experiment, simply and safely.
Our compact, 300V uEP modules provide precision voltage, current or power control, ideal for electrophoresis and gel electrophoresis setups. The uEP is controlled with our uProcess software. It can function as a standalone power supply, or it can be used in conjunction with uProcess sensors for constant pressure or temperature modes.
