The ESS™ platform is a versatile fluid handling platform for directing fluid flow that can be automated using Fluigent software. It includes three complementary types of bidirectional valves (the 2-SWITCH™, the L-SWITCH™ and the M-SWITCH™), as well as a unique communication hub, the SWITCHBOARD.
This system can be controlled by Fluigent software or your own by using the SDK toolkit.
The different valves can be used for many different protocols. For sorting, the 2-SWITCH™ is recommended whereas for recirculation, it is better to use a L-SWITCH™. For sequential injections, the M-SWITCH™ is the most suitable product.
