Automated protocol to perform microfluidic pumping, mixing and sampling


Microfluidics provide advantages in fluid handling capabilities, scalability, robustness, and automation. In the past ten years, programmable microfluidic platforms have been implemented, allowing to perform typical fluidic operations such as mixing, sampling, washing, and reacting automatically within a single microfluidic chip only by modifying the sequence/order of fluidic operations using a software. They are useful in biological and chemical applications, such as quantitative metabolic biomarker and genetic analysis4,5, protein-based biomarker detection6, or small molecule chemical and environmental analysis7. Among these mechanisms, pneumatic actuation is the most reliable method due to the simplicity of fabrication, ease-of-use, scalability, and a high degree of accuracy, precision, and reliability.

This webinar will show how to combine Fluigent systems and software for the sequential injection of fluids within a microfluidic chip developed by the CEA-LETI to perform pumping, mixing, sampling, and cleaning.

What you will learn

  • Discover a Plug and Play and easy to use approach to rapidly launch reliable microfluidic experiments
  • See how to reduce the complexity of a microfluidic setup with a compact and complete solution
  • See how complex protocols have been integrated into a single scalable chip.

Who should attend

  • You are a researcher or a scientist working on microfluidics and wish to automate our experiments.
  • You are a researcher or a scientist in biology or chemistry performing routine mixing or sampling and wish to benefit from microfluidics advantages: reduced reagent consumptions, parallelization, automation, ...



The webinar will be aired on Thursday November 12th at:

  • 5PM Central European Summer Time
  • 11AM Eastern Time
