Optimizing Microfluidics with Enhanced Liquid Handling

Microfluidics has been a game changer in liquid handling technologies. At Advanced Microfluidics, we leverage cutting-edge microfluidics valves to drive forward the capabilities of fluid manipulation with unprecedented precision.

Innovative Sequential Flow with Rotary Valves

Our LSPone and SPM systems (syringe pump with integrated rotary valve) embody the integration of sophisticated rotary valves along with a high precision syringe pump, allowing for the management of different liquids sequentially into any setup. With options of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 ports, our versatile rotary valves are the heart of the system, providing a seamless and automated distribution of fluids for a myriad of applications.

Sequential Liquid Handling in Action: Revolutionizing Chemical Synthesis

Based on the remarkable article published by M. Arveiler and his team on Reaction Chemistry & Engineering [1], we explore the application of 2 SPMs’ in an experimental setting. They are pivotal for their precise automation capabilities. It orchestrates the liquid handling with an integrated 12-port distribution valve, enabling automated sequential dispensing for complex multi-step chemical processes.

Each port serves a distinct purpose in the sequential flow strategy, creating a symphony of fluid dynamics:

The operation begins with the precise collection of the model mixture and the HCl solution, moving through the extraction/separation module. Following the initial phase separation, the aqueous phase undergoes basification, and a second extraction phase ensues, culminating in the recovery of the target compounds.

This article’s use of SPMs’ provides an exemplary demonstration of its automated sequential liquid handling potential. It stands as a testament to the efficiency and sophistication that can be brought to diverse applications across various scientific disciplines, made possible by the advanced capabilities of automated systems.

Streamlined Efficiency with Minimal Footprint

The integration of distribution valves into the LSPone and SPM systems exemplifies our commitment to efficiency and space-saving design. This all-in-one instrument not only saves valuable bench space but also simplifies operation, enabling a smooth and repeatable liquid handling process.
