UniGo Pulse-Free Microfluidic Pressure Pump

UniGo Pulse-Free Microfluidic Pressure Pump

UniGo Pump series is a microfluidic pressure pump controlled by SmartFlo software that can be run from an iPad or PC. Connect up to 4 UniGo pumps together with independent programming of each pump's flow profile.


 

Overview

The UniGo™ Microfluidic Pump is a precision, microfluidic, single-channel 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. The UniGo pump requires a plug-and-play flow sensor for active feedback and increased flow control. SmartFlo Application executed on the iPad mini or LabView based interface communicates with up to 4 UniGo Microfluidic Pumps racked together allowing simultaneous control and independent programming of each pump’s flow profile.

Note: a flow sensor must be used with each UniGo pump.

  • PULSE-FREE down to µL/min with flow sensor
  • PROGRAMMABLE flow profiles with any combination of constant, ramp, sine and step
  • EASY INTEGRATION with your own software, including LabVIEW, C++ and Python
  • FAST RESPONSE and fast settling time
  • 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
  • MODULAR: up to 4 UniGo pressure pumps connected together with independent programming of each pump's flow profile.  Or you can mix-and-match with ExiGo syringe pumps

An UniGo Syringe Pump setup will look like this:

 

To select the UniGo pump configuration you need follow the following selection chart

  1. Select whether you need an external pressure source included or you already have your own
  2. Choose whether you want to control the UniGo via an Ipad, PC or you are adding an additional model (SLA)
  3. Select the flow sensor based on the flow rate required
