4U Four Channel Microfluidic Pressure Pump

4U Four Channel Microfluidic Pressure Pump

4U Pump series is a four channel microfluidic pressure pump controlled by SmartFlo software that can be run from an iPad or PC.


Overview

4U is a four-channel precision, microfluidic, pressure pump for a variety of microfluidic applications, where accurate and stable flow rate delivery is required. The pressure pump component is based on controlled air injection. SmartFlo application executed on the iPad
mini or LabVIEW based interface communicates with the four separate channels of the 4U pump allowing simultaneous control and independent programming of each pump’s flow profile.

  • FAST RESPONSE and fast settling time
  • PULSE-FREE down to uL/min with flow sensor
  • PROGRAMMABLE flow profiles with any combination of constant, ramp, sine and step
  • EASY INTEGRATION with your own software - LabVIEW, C++, Python, etc
  • FLOW RATES: 1µL/min - 1mL/min
  • INPUT PRESSURE: up to 10 bar or 145 psi - external compressor or vacuum pump required
  • CLOSED-LOOP FEEDBACK: Flow sensors provide active feedback and precise flow control
  • EASY TO USE: simple software control via SmartFlo app on iPad mini or LabVIEW

A 4U pressure pump setup will look like this

To select a 4U pump configuration you need to used the selection chart below

  1. Select whether you need an external pressure source included or you already have your own
  2. Choose whether you want to control the 4U via an Ipad or PC
  3. Select the flow sensor for each channel based on the flow rate required. When selecting the 4U model below add the four flow sensors you need in the comments section
