SmartFlo for PC
Versatile control of Microfluidic Syringe Pumps & Pressure Pumps
EASY TO USE SOFTWARE FOR PC / DESKTOP compatible with Windows 7 or higher.
SIMPLE SETTING OF FLOW RATES OR PRESSURE for ExiGo microfluidic syringe pumps and UniGo or 4U pressure pumps.
CUSTOMISE PROGRAMS for flow/pressure profiles with any combination of constant, ramp, sine and step.
SAVE & RETRIEVE programmed waveforms for use later.
SIMPLE SYRINGE SELECTOR option for ExiGo syringe pumps, or upload your custom syringe
FLOW RATE <--> PRESSURE: switch in one click (UniGo/4U pumps).
CLOSED-LOOP FEEDBACK: Flow sensors (optional with ExiGo; compulsory for UniGo/4U) provide active feedback and precise flow control.
MODULAR: control up to 4 ExiGo syringe pumps or 4 UniGo pressure pumps independently. Or mix-and-match with a combination of ExiGo and UniGo pumps.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
SmartFlo for PC/Desktop enables simple control of Cellix's ExiGo microfluidic syringe pumps, UniGo pressure pumps and 4U pressure pumps. As always, we advise our customers to think about their experimental set-up and what they want to achieve before deciding on which pump or combinations of pumps to purchase. Here are a few things to keep in mind:
ExiGo syringe pump:
Syringe Selector in SmartFlo enables simple selection of the syringe. You can then easily clamp it in place and move the plunger to the starting position for your experiment.
Units: depending on your experiment, you can set the unit for Flow Rate (L/min) or Shear Stress (dynes/cm2).
UniGo / 4U pressure pumps:
Units: depending on your experiment, you can set the unit for Flow Rate (L/min) or Pressure (bar) with one simple click.
Mix-and-match syringe and pressure pumps:
SmartFlo enables simple control of a combination of up to 4 ExiGo and UniGo pumps; e.g. 2X ExiGo + 2X UniGo or 1X ExiGo + 3X UniGo etc.
Combining syringe pumps and pressure pumps together in one experimental set-up, with individual flow control via SmartFlo gives you unrivalled versatility for your experiments.
