Labsmith and Fluigent Join Forces
News Jan 23, 2013
Fluigent, headquartered in Paris, France, is a microfluidic flow control and fluid handling expert. LabSmith Inc., based in Livermore, California, offers a wide range of tools for innovative laboratory electronic and microfluidic solutions.
LabSmith and Fluigent join forces in the promotion of a microfluidic voltage control platform composed of LabSmith’s HVS448 Eight Channel High Voltage Sequencer and Fluigent’s MFCSTM (Microfluidic Flow Control System) and Electrowell device. Promotion of this tool combination highlights a simplified automated platform for the control of fluids and voltage in a microfluidic set-up.
“Combining the HVS448, MFCSTM and Electrowell systems will provide customers with a combined microfluidic solution for precise fluid and voltage control,” explains Fluigent CEO Franҫois Leblanc. LabSmith President and CEO, Kirsten Pace, agrees, stating, “The approach promoted by LabSmith and Fluigent will be useful for many lab-on-a-chip electrokinetic and electrophoretic applications in R&D laboratories.”
Fluigent and LabSmith plan to leverage their technical expertise and market experience to offer products that can be easily integrated into any microfluidics experiments for R&D laboratories and industrial applications.
