Fast Switching and Mixing of Liquids with the Fluid Switch – FS!

The fluid switch is designed to switch between different liquids in several channels – starting with 8 via 16, 32 up to 64 channels. In this way you can realise fast switching between fluids or, for instance, mixing at different ratios.

The fluid switch can be controlled via the control software of P2CS – jP2CS or via P2CS over the serial communication. A standalone version is the Micro-perfusion system MPS-X.

Material of the valves in FS: PMMA and PEEK and EPDM or FFPM.

You can select different connectors, since the fluid switch has threads†M5 (compatible to UNF 32-10).

Setup of the Fluid Switch FS with P2CS

The depicted setup consists of:

Advantages of the Fluid Switch

easy automated mixing of media or reagents


stable pulsation-free flow in the perfusion head


fast and interruption-free switching


transparent perfusion head for a better observation of the experiments


different channel geometries of the perfusion head available: mixing, multiplexing

Fields of the Applications of the Fluid Switch

perfusion of cell or tissue culture


dose-response analysis


mixing media or other liquids with specific ratios


Use of Different Fluids
