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.

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.

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.
