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 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.
Click here to download the new uProcess Software. Instructions for using controlling the SVM340 in uProcess are given in Section 6 of the new uProcess user’s manual.
Need faster, higher-resolution separations? Need to use long micro-channels? LabSmith’s HVS448 high voltage sequencers are now available with an 8000 V differential range. The HVS448-8000D includes all of the same great control and software features as our other sequencers, like precise voltage and current supply or sensing, millisecond switching, and 8-channel coordinated control. The HVS448-8000D is available in both our standard configuration and our low current configuration with 13 nA monitor resolution for nanofluidic applications.

Controlling pumps, valves or sensors? No more RS232-USB adapters required! LabSmith now offers its uProcess™ interface with USB communication. The new electronic interface board (EIB200) controls over 100 uDevices for sequential operation and up to 10 uDevices for simultaneous operation. Priced the same as the original EIB100 (RS232 connection) it includes uProcess software, power supply, micro USB 2.0 cable, and flat ribbon connection cable. The EIB200 is compatible with uProcess Software versions 1.24.4 and later. Click here for more information or to purchase.
