Applications

This pressure pump can be used for a wide range of usages :

  • micro-droplets
  • double emulsion generation
  • cell culture experiments
  • bead and particle manipulation

... Or your own application ! Its versatility and simplicity fulfills several needs.

 Workflow

The workflow of the pump is really simple. The pressure is monitored on the computer or using the front knob of the pump. The sample is pressurized inside tanks (compatible with Falcon, Eppendorf or bottle), and then injected into the chip at the exact pressure or flow rate wanted.

 

(1) Volume dependent - Measurement done on 12 mL reservoir for a set point from 0 to 200 mbar

The Elveflow® Smart Interface allows to intuitively monitor the Elveflow® products. This evolutive software can achieve the simplest tasks as the most complex, and can perform different waveforms of pressure. Real-time displayed datas can be saved for further uses.

  • Easy flow control : coupled with a flow sensor, the flow rate can be directly controlled by a feedback loop on the software
  • Automate your setup
  • Save instruments configurations
  • Visualise and save datas with a 100Hz acquisition rate
  • One software for all the Elveflow® products

Your can also control your experiments using C, Python, Labview® or Matlab®.
