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.

New uEP01 Electrophoresis Power Module

By LabSmith on March 18, 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 provides constant voltage to 300V, or current or power. Multiple modules can be controlled together for fully-independent, multi-channel control.

The uEP01 is part of the uProcess platform,  which includes hardware (uDevices) and software (uProcess) products for constructing and automating microfluidic systems. The uEP01 can be used in conjunction with LabSmith pressure sensors and temperature sensors for constant pressure or temperature modes and can be integrated into complete systems using uProcess control software.

Software Upgrade for Automated uProcess and SVM340 Control

By sarah on October 23, 2015.

LabSmith has an innovative new automation software package that makes it easy to use real-time microscope imagery to control flow automatically. Our latest uProcess software includes a plug-in for automated control of the SVM340. Now you can write sequences to control SVM340 stage position, illumination, snapshots, and videos. When used in combination with the uProcess automated fluid handling devices (syringe pumps, valves, and pressure sensors), the new software provides complete experiment and imaging control.  The uProcess software update is FREE to all SVM340 and uProcess customers.
