uProcess Automated 8-Position Selector Valve AV801
The LabSmith AV801 selector valve provides automated routing of microfluidic volumes. At 6.6 cm (2.6 in) high, the AV801 is a fraction of the size of other valves, making it ideal for microfluidics research and OEM applications.
The compact AV801 has 8 selector ports and one common port. The extremely small swept volume minimizes waste and enable high throughput. Fast, reliable geared switching ensures long life.
Sample microfluidic circuit using the AV801 and AV201 automated valves, and other uProcess automated components.
LabSmith’s AV801 valves are constructed with Vespel® as the wetted material*, for use with a wide variety of chemicals.
CapTite™ one-piece fittings provide leak-free connections to 1/32” OD, 1/16″ OD or 360 micron OD capillary.
LabSmith’s miniaturized 4VM02 valve manifold provides control for up to four selector valves, with single-cable connections. The breadboard-mounted 4VM02 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, temperature and pressure 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.
Requires a 4VM02 valve manifold and EIB200 interface controller for communicating with PC. Connects to capillary via CapTite one-piece fittings (not included).
