Customer Questions
I need a pumping system for my setup. Which one do you recommend?

We recommend using a high precision pumping system. Regular syringe pumps often don't work very well for droplet generators. There are several high precision pumping systems on the market that work with different pumping principles.

To name one, we'd like to mention that we have had positive experiences with the equipment Fluigent offers: https://www.fluigent.com/

 

Which flowrates should I use?

This depends on many things. For example on the type of fluid that you are using. Check our flowrate instructions to find out how to start.

I only see streaks of fluids but no droplets. How do I get the droplets?

Decrease your flowrate. Check our flowrate instructions for a more acurate explanation.

Which surfactants should I use?

Use our surfactant guide for advice on surfactants.

How do I prevent clogging of my chips?

Have a look at our clogging prevention guide.

Should I use coated or uncoated droplet generators?

Have a look at our article about surface wetting properties.

I have a Elveflow OB1 pressure based pump what connectors do I need?

Nuts and ferrules

Elveflow uses 1/4-28 screw in connections on there reservoirs and sensors. To interface you will need Flangeless nuts 1/4-28 for 1/16" tubing, including compatible ferrules. Those nuts and ferrules are included in Elveflows "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in".
This item wil look like this:

In addition you will need our connection kit. Our Connection kit includes nuts or ferrules specificilly designed for our Fluidic Connect Pro, Fluidic Connect 4515 or side connect holders.

Tubing included in "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in"

The 1/16"OD PTFE tubing included in the kit has a very large ID (1/32" ~0.79mm) and is from a relatively soft material, this is not so suitable for bot our Fluidic Connect Pro and Fluidic Connect 4515 holders as there's very limited wall thickness. We recommend alternative tubing, like ETFE with a maximum of 0.5mm ID. This tubing is included in our connection kits.

Use of 1/32" tubing
1/32" tubing can be in combination with our Fluidic Connect Pro holder also be used, but need alternative ferrules. The ElveFlow "Kit Fittings Starter Pack Push-in" doesn't include sleeves for use of 1/32" OD tubing. They are included in our "Syringe to tube connection kit"
Our Sideconnect our Fluidic Connect 4515 holders doens't support 1/32" tubing.

I have a Fluigent pressure based pump, what connectors do I need?

Lineup

We recommend the dafault Fluigent kits (FLOW EZ™ SUPPLY KIT, FLUIWELL KIT or P-CAP KIT)
The P-cab or FLUIWELL KIT already contains 0.5m 1/16" OD FEP tubing with a ID of 500µm, when you use only limited pressures, you can try this tubing first and only order:

For optimal performance we recommend our complete connection kit, the FEP tubing might be a bit soft limiting the pressure rating. 

MFCS

We recommend the dafault Fluigent kits (MFCS™-EZ HIGH/LOW PRESSURE KIT, FLUIWELL KIT or P-CAP KIT ) 

The P-cab or FLUIWELL KIT already contains 0.5m or 1m 1/16" OD FEP tubing with a ID of 500µm, when you use only limited pressures, you can try this tubing first and only order:

For optimal performance we recommend our complete connection kit, the FEP tubing might be a bit soft limiting the pressure rating.
