Changes to operations due to COVID-19

By Mike Zecchino on March 18, 2020.

UPDATED 4/3: LabSmith’s headquarters are located in Livermore CA, which is currently under a shelter-in-place order through May 3. We approve of the county’s extraordinary effort to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, and we are complying with all guidelines specified by the county and state.

We recognize that many of our customers rely on LabSmith products for essential research, testing and health care services. We have been building up our inventory in advance of a possible shutdown, so we will be able to continue to ship most products from our current stock, with minimal (2-3 day) delays. Our stock includes almost all of our uProcess and CapTite microfluidics products.

For LabSmith instruments (HVS high voltage sequencers, SVM video microscopes and LC timing controllers) please anticipate lead times 2-3 weeks longer than standard.

During the shelter-in-place period LabSmith employees will be working remotely. You can reach us by email at sales@labsmith.com for routine questions, or you can contact me directly (kpace@labsmith.com) for urgent requests or to place critical orders. We will not have anyone staffing the phone lines, though we will be checking messages frequently.

If you need technical support, please email me directly and I will make sure your request is forwarded to the right person to assist you via email, Skype or phone.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this situation.

CEO, LabSmith

LabSmith has moved!

By Mike Zecchino on January 8, 2020.

LabSmith has relocated to our new location at 5981 Graham Court, Livermore, CA, 94550.

Our new facility includes a greatly expanded manufacturing area and cleanroom space. The move will help us keep pace with our growing sales of products for microfluidics and laboratory research.

Please update your contact lists, and thank you for your continued use of LabSmith’s products.

 

Visit LabSmith at SLAS 2020 San Diego

By Mike Zecchino on January 6, 2020.

From January 27–29, stop by Booth 1347 in San Diego to see the latest innovations in microfluidic flow and automation, voltage control, real-time video microscopy, and more.

LabSmith at SLAS 2020 Conference

At the show we will be displaying our comprehensive line of microfluidics flow and automation products. LabSmith’s uProcess automation software and hardware products provide straightforward, programmable routing of microfluidic volumes, while CapTite fittings and ferrules provide leak-free connectivity, easy cleaning and long life over multiple runs.

At SLAS we will also demonstrate the SVM340 Synchronized Video Microscope, with new Particle Counting Probes. These unique software probes let you characterize particles from sub-micron through hundreds of microns in diameter based on absorption, scattering, refraction or fluorescence. Count and characterize particles in real-time, up to 5000 particles/frame, and use the results to monitor and control your experiment as it happens. Applications include real-time sensing for microfluidic particle sorters and manipulators, step-and-scan culture characterization, powder particle size and shape quantitation, etc.

High-reliability valves are a key part of the uProcess family. The new AV801 compact selector valve includes 8 selector ports and one common port for complex fluid routing in 360µm or 1/16″ OD capillary systems. The AV801 features low valve volume and compatibility with a wide range of chemicals.

Also new is the uEP Electrophoresis Power Supply Module, an extremely compact, fully programmable high voltage supply for electrophoresis and gel electrophoresis setups. Measuring just 8.1 cm (3.2 in.) long and supplying voltages up to 300V, the uEP01 can be fully automated, with modes including constant voltage, constant current and constant power. Use the uEP in conjunction with our uProcess sensors for constant temperature or pressure modes.

We encourage you to contact us to schedule a time to meet with our team at SLAS to learn how LabSmith can help with your application.

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.
