Ultra-small Dispensing Module (Under Development)

dispensing_module.jpg

This module meters liquid for dispensing. Every time the button on the controller (external input also possible) is pushed, the module releases the liquid metered by the sample loop from the needle. Its small dimensions of 38.3 x 41.3 x 37.4mm and light weight of approx. 25g enable it to be mounted on moving elements.

(Please refer to the flow diagram below for the configuration.)

Fluidic components for medical and analytical instruments

Takasago will exhibit a wide range of fluidic devices designed for life science and medical applications at the upcoming COMPAMED (co-located with MEDICA) held from 16 to 19 November 2015, at Dusseldorf Fairgrounds in Germany. Some highlighted products are shown below. We will co-exhibit with the needle specialist FUTA-Q, Ltd., and Aquatech Co. Ltd., a leading miniature peristaltic pumps company. At our stand, you can see various fluidic modules and enjoy a one-stop consultation with fluidic specialists. We look forward to seeing you at Stand #F26, Hall 8b.

 

=======================================

Highlighted Exhibits at COMPAMED

1. Miniature Low-cost Valve SMV Series 

2. Embeddable Disposable Pump - Chip Pump 

3. Portable Medium Exchange System for 6-well Plates 

4. Various Pumps

=======================================

 

 

1. Miniature Low-cost Valve SMV Series (patented)

SMV1.jpg

This valve is driven by a piece of shape-memory alloy, resulting in significant miniaturisation and cost reduction. It also meets requirements for POCT applications. By using the SMV series, we aim to achieve "1/10 the volume and 1/2 the price" for fluid control modules used in diagnostic instruments. A good example of this concept is an ultra-small dispensing module, which is formed by integrating four SMV valves and one miniature pump (see the picture above). It is so small that it can be mounted on a moving element.

Details of the SMV Series: http://www.takasago-fluidics.com/news/2015/06/000141.html

 

<Special Exhibition Campaign>

You can receive a fully-functioning SMV valve sample free of charge by simply filling out a questionnaire. Make use of this opportunity to test our miniature low-cost valve.

 

 

2. Embeddable Disposable Pump - Chip Pump (patent pending)

chip_pump1.jpg

A peristaltic pumping function is incorporated into a PDMS chip, where rollers rotate and compress a Ω-shaped channel to directly pump the liquid inside. The PDMS chip is replaceable and can be autoclaved. By adopting this pump in your fluidic chips, you can mix and stir two liquids on one chip, for example. If a reaction chamber is established inside a fluidic chip, reaction and detection are possible. A small light-weight motor is used for this pump, making it suitable for POCT devices.

3. Portable Culture Medium Exchange System for 6-well Plates (under development, patent pending)

medium_exchange_system1.jpg
The system realises automatic culture medium exchange at low cost. The system can operate continuously in an incubator for one week by battery power.

The Automated Perfusion Culture System is also available (under development, patent pending).
