Our innovative and flexible fluidic product portfolio can help solve the most complex microfluidic challengesRelying on expertise in nucleic acid (NextGen) sequencing, flow cytometry, and polymerase chain reaction (PCR), our engineers are able to recommend the correct flow path for your instrument. From precise liquid dispense components such as syringe pumps, low dead volume solenoid valves and rotary shear valves; to gas control assemblies driving fluids in a microfluidic chip, we can handle any level of complexity in gas and liquid control. Improvements in technology are rapid in this sector, and through our partnerships with leading instrument manufacturers, we maintain our position at the forefront of these advancements.
Flow cytometry is a laser-based technique used to detect and analyse the chemical and physical characteristics of cells or particles. It is used in analytical, biotechnology, and diagnostic applications including haematology, immunology, urinalysis, and clinical diagnostics.
Flow cytometry is a technology that rapidly analyses single cells or particles as they pass in front of one or more lasers while suspended in a buffered saline solution. Each particle is analysed for visible light scattering and one or more fluorescent parameters. Our components for flow cytometry include syringe pumps and electronic pressure controllers for sample and sheath flow control, as well as media-separated and pinch valves for sample, sheath and waste handling.
How Norgren can help
Offering reliability over the lifetime - especially with aggressive media.
Low dead volume
Precision and accuracy
Simplifying your fluidic circuitry
Sequencing (DNA, RNA, NGS)
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the nucleic acid sequence – the order of nucleotides in DNA.
It includes any method or technology that is used to determine the order of the four bases: adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine. The advent of rapid DNA sequencing methods has greatly accelerated biological and medical research and discovery. OEM DNA sequencing solutions are customised to meet specific customer requirements and can be integrated into a range of instruments, such as high-throughput sequencers (next-generation sequencing NGS), microfluidic devices, and portable sequencing systems.
When it comes to portable devices, miniaturisation is critical. By offering a wide range of products from low dead volume media-separated valves and rotary shear valves to syringe pumps, acrylic manifolds and complete integrated fluidic assemblies, Norgren is the one-stop-shop that OEMs need.
Polymerase chain reaction (PCR)
Sometimes called molecular photocopying, PCR is a technique used to amplify and copy small segments of DNA.
As significant amounts of DNA are necessary for molecular and genetic analyses, studies of isolated pieces of DNA are nearly impossible without PCR amplification. OEM PCR solutions can be integrated into a range of instruments, such as thermal cyclers, microfluidic devices, and portable PCR systems.
Capillary electrophoresis is a technique used to separate and analyse molecules based on their size and charge.
It involves the use of a capillary tube filled with a buffer solution, through which an electric field is applied.
