Several solutions from one outlet or one feed directed into different outlets.

Use the MUX Distribution valve to sequentially inject up 12 different solutions into one microfluidic line for sample collections or parallel experiments.

  • Low internal volume
  • Fast switching time
  • Workflow microfluidic automation
  • Smooth switches:  no disruption of the flow
  • Easy setup and operation (plug and play software + standard fluidic connection)

Bidirectional 13 ports/ 12 positions sequential injection from 12 different samples into 1 output/input

Mux Distribution Valve, fluid switching in a microfluidic chip

  1. Volume inside the system from entrance to exit
  2. Volume of liquid that will be mixed with the next liquid. It is not stuck, but will be swept next time a liquid passes.
  3. Volume that is stuck in the system (dead end), which is not clearly swept and relies on diffusion to clear out
