The Soft-Pumping Bundle is an application example for the use of memetis miniature valves in fluidic systems. The product can control four different fluids in a controlled manner through a microfluidic chip by using a four valve array. The product is particularly useful in life science applications where a continuous and pulsation free flow of different fluids through a cell culture is required.
The Soft-Pumping Bundle contains:
4 x 100ml liquid reservoir with pressure-driven-flow lid (fluidic interface: 2 x UNF ¼”-28 thread)
1 x four valve arry (PEEK, fluidic interface: 5 x UNF 10-32 thread) with 4 x memetis NC-valve Series09
2 x memetis programmable Electrical Control Unit (ECU-P2) incl. 4 x valve cable + 2 x USB-cable
1 x acrylic frame kit
2m silicone tube (ID 2mm, OD 3mm) and barbed connectors (4x UNF ¼”-28, 5x LUER) for pressurized air supply
2m PTFE tube (ID 0.8mm, OD 1.6mm) and IDEX connectors (4x UNF ¼”-28, 5x UNF 10-32) for liquid transport
How it works
A pump is connected to the lids of the liquid containers via a pressure distributor to increase the pressure inside. Once the internal pressure exceeds the external pressure, the liquids flow through a tube to the 4i/1o-manifold. Four Normally-Closed (NC) valves (Series09) are mounted on the manifold and can be switched manually or via a graphical user interface. The liquid output of the manifold can now be connected to your experiment, such as a Lab-on-a-chip (not included in delivery), which requires a continuous flow of a nutrient medium.
Features of the programmable version
The electronic control unit (ECU) can be used to control the memetis valves. It has multiple features to ensure an easy start with the memetis miniature valves.
2 output channels with measurement capabilities
Supports self-sensing and error detection
Fully programmable with USB and I2C
Easy-to-use Python library for USB and I2C communication
Can be powered from PC/laptop or external wall plug
Graphical User Interface
To easily work with multiple ECU-P and change the settings of how to control the valves, we offer a free graphical user interface for download.
