  • Right Sizing a Syringe Pump

    Syringe pump technology has been widely used in fluidic system designs for several decades and they are a popular choice because they offer a high level of flexibility and versatility within a single device. This means that the device can be optimized to perform at a wide range of fluid delivery...
  • Flow Stability in Life Science Applications

    In cytometry, hematology and sequencing instruments particularly, maintaining a steady fluid delivery rate is critical to obtaining reliable results. The importance of this requirement is further amplified where very low flow rates are necessary or when working with very small particles (< 10...
  • Selecting the Right Manifold Body Material for Your Fluidic Application

    Manifolds used in life science fluidics can offer significant value beyond discrete tubing approaches to system design. Manifolds provide a more compact solution with fewer leak points, easier equipment assembly and service, and lower carryover of sample. While a manifold approach to design can...
  • Choosing the Right Connections and Fittings for Manifolds

    Designing a customized integrated manifold for a medical or life science device presents engineers with the challenge of selecting from many different components. A key consideration in developing any new fluidic control system is the type of connections used to tie different components together...
