Miniaturization and functional integration continue to be important trends in the areas of Life Science, Medicine, Pharmaceuticals and Diagnostics. As part of this, microfluidic components and systems are a fundamental element in the development of innovative solutions. However, microfluidics and microsystem technology are used by manufacturers in other sectors as well, such as the automation, aerospace and energy sectors, where they increase the efficiency of products and processes by using ever smaller intelligent systems.
We have developed the mpSmart system to meet these requirements. The system is based on our mp6 series of micropumps. mpSmart means that the micropump is being combined with one or more additional components, such as a sensor, a microfluidic chip or an active valve. This turns it into a microfluidic system with additional functionality. One feature of the intelligent mpSmart system is that our experienced developers select and fully pre-assemble the individual components with all the right settings for your purposes, so that the system is ready for operation. The electronics and the control systems are precisely matched to each unit. Of course to help you with this, we will also provide you with some individual software that has a user interface you will find simple and intuitive to operate.
The family already includes the mpSmart-Dosing, the mpSmart-Lowdosing and the mpSmart-Flowstop. The mpSmart-Dosing and the -Lowdosing are small but intelligent dosing systems with sensors that allow flow rates to be set with the highest level of precision for different fluids – whatever the temperature or viscosity. With the mpSmart-Flowstop, the micropump is connected to an active valve instead of a sensor, so that the microfluidic system can be switched as needed.
But of course with the mpSmart system there are any number of other potential configurations imaginable using commercially available components. With new applications the sky’s the limit. Our experts from the field of micro engineering will be pleased to help you turn your innovative ideas into a marketable solution!
