4 Channel Valve Controlled Pressurized Perfusion System  Detailed description

Key features of the VC3-4xP Series include:

  • Choice of low-maintenance pinch valves or fast-response solenoid valves 
  • Customizable reservoir sizes and materials
  • DAQ control via analog or TTL input
  • Valve control through DAQ, Valve Commander software, or controller
  • Spill sensor with automatic shutoff to protect microscope optics
  • MilliManifold TM and Quartz MicroManifold® perfusion outlet options for low volume and rapid solution exchange applications
  • Valve open and close timestamps via analog or digital output

Each VC3-4xP Series system includes the following:

  • Magnetic stand with poles
  • Valve manifold with solenoid or pinch valves and 5mL pressurized syringe reservoirs
  • VC3 electronic valve controller with a USB cable and Valve Commander software
  • DB9-BNC4 cable for TTL input or output
  • DB9-CABLE controller to valve manifold cable
  • Spill sensor and tubing

Each VC3-4xP Series system features a choice of valves:

Pinch valves : The 3-way normally open and normally closed pinch valves require minimal maintenance in long-term perfusion experiments and have response times of 15-20 ms.

  • Solenoid valves : The 2-way normally closed solenoid valves are optimized for high-speed solution exchange. These valves feature a biologically inert internally wettable surface and have response times of 1-2 ms.

Valve Controller:
