LabSmith, Fluigent join forces
Two microfluidic instrument manufactures are partnering to provide seamless access to an expansive range of tools for electrokinetic and electrophoretic experiments. Fluigent, headquartered in Paris, France, is a microfluidic flow control and fluid handling manufacturer. LabSmith Inc., based in Livermore, Calif., 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 MFCS (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 setup.
"Combining the HVS448, MFCS, 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."
