The LineUpTM SWITCH EZ is a module allowing one to control Fluigent’s microfluidic valves. The connected valves can be controlled or programmed either by using the local control directly on the device or by creating a protocol in real-time to automate valve actuation timing.

Set-Up and configurations


The SWITCH EZ can be integrated in the LineUpTM chain with pressure controllers whether it is controlled with Software of locally. Many configurations are possible.

Standalone configuration for valve control only

The SWITCH EZ can be used without a computer to monitor Fluigent’s microfluidic valves. To do so, provide power supply to the module using the LineUp Power Kit (LPK001), plug the microlfuidic valves to the dedicated ports and use the local control to actuate the valves.

Combine the SWITCH EZ with any other LineUpTM pressure controller to benefit from a compact and complete system for microfluidics operations. Add a LineUpTM LINK a the first position of the chain to connect the system to the PC and allow one to use Fluigent’s Microfluics Automation Tool (MAT) and program valve actuation timing.

Main benefits


icon ease of useEasy to use: Start experiment in minutes. No PC is needed for simple experiments.


Icon modular and expandableModular: Combine as many module as the experiment requires. Each module is a separate pressure channel and can be controlled independently.


Icon automation software intuitiveAutomation capabilities: Use the MAT software to automatize your sampling and general valve operation in a very simple manner.


Icon compactnessCompact: Instead of looking at the PC, users can keep their eyes on the microscope, adjusting the control dial with one hand. In this stand-alone configuration, the device allows for pressure or flow rate control and volume dispense making it ideal for benchtop use.
