The μFlow™ from ALA is a micro-volume perfusion system that addresses the growing need to preserve precious compounds during electrophysiology and imaging experiments. ALA has accomplished this through adaptation of our unique Micromanifold® technology for the perfusion of very low solution volumes to cells and tissues.
Key features of the μFlow include:
- Extremely low dead volume from reservoir to tip (<6.4μL)
- Prevention of backflow and cross contamination via micro check valves
- Manual control through VC3 controller or computer control through software
- Pneumatic control valves for reduction of dead volume
- 4- or 8- channel option
The μFlow™ drastically reduces dead volume that is normally associated with pressurized perfusion systems. All tubing that solution normally flows through is minimized. Pressure is applied to a closed vessel which sends solution through a special Quartz MicroManifold® .
