mpSmart-Flowstop
– microfluidic system with integrated circuit

The combination of micropump and valve is perfect for switching fluids and gases quickly and safely. With the mpSmart-Flowstop you can open or shut off the fluid flow independent of hydrostatic pressure!

micropump + active valve

Overview

The mpSmart-Flowstop is designed according to the same principle as the other members of the mpSmart family:

The combination of micropump, electronics and an additional component results in additional functionalities.

In the case of the mpSmart-Flowstop, the functional extension consists of an active valve that can be used to stop or release the flow of fluids in both flow directions. Unwanted flow due to hydrostatic pressure can thus be prevented – an important aspect, for example, in the administration of medication or for other processes in which controlled handling of the smallest quantities of fluids must be ensured.

The 2/2-way valve from manufacturer Takasago with shape memory alloy is precisely adjustable and controlled by the same electronics as the micropump. Of course, the mpSmart-Flowstop also lives up to its name and enables digital control.

Just like the sensor-equipped mpSmart-Dosing and -Lowdosing systems, the Flowstop system is also predestined for applications in the fields of diagnostics, pharmaceuticals and medicine thanks to its small size and simple, reliable handling. But of course it is also suitable for many other areas of application from energy to robotics – contact us!
