Takasago has a wide range of precise fluidic control components such as solenoid valves, pinch valves, air-operated valves, micro pumps, etc.
This video is a fluidic module directly driven by a pair of peristaltic pumps working with a reagent-prefilled disposable chip. The chip is made from elastic materials such as PDMS. By just mounting the chip on rollers, the pumps can discharge the pre-filled reagent from the reservoir and take a sample into the chip from the sample-in port to mix them together. The chip has another closed reservoir for waste, simplifying the disposal of chemicals.
