Global FIA offers targeted solutions to fluid handling challenges. Our work can be categorized under the following headings:
The combined fluidics experience of staff at Global FIA exceeds 100 years. This experience spans fields of use from medical devices to instrumentation for the mining industry. Our developers have demonstrated innovation in solutions that address real world problems. Many of these solutions have resulted in patentable technology and perhaps more importantly the designation - "Problem Solved".
In the development of a wet chemistry method of analysis, several factors must be considered. Methods usually include some or all of the following elements:
In addition for automated instrumental techniques, provision must also be made for automated instrument start up, clean up, and shut down.
Global FIA has found Zone Fluidics to be a powerful approach to many unit operations found in wet chemical analytical methodologies. Our team of application scientists will start from existing measurement methods and apply them to an automated Zone Fluidics platform. A toolbox of sample manipulation and separation unit operations provide a good starting point for system design. Having optimized each step in the assay, the performance of the method is demonstrated by determining the analytical figures of merit.
Global FIA can undertake small and medium contract manufacturing projects. A quality management system for our manufacturing facility ensures the production of a quality product.
A key component of any system is the software. Global FIA has invested significantly in the development of a powerful and user-friendly device control, data acquistion and data manipulation package called FloZF©. Particular attention was given to the user-interface and a design that favors the developer. In the latest release of the software we have added the ability to manipulate variables. This provides a giant increase in the power of the package.
New features are being added that also allow the software to be configured for users who simply want the software to execute their sequences and do not want to make changes to the underlying method. A free demo version of the software can be downloaded from the software section of the Global FIA store
In the early days of FIA, the most fertile repository of manifold components was the Chromatographer's laboratory. Since those early days, a whole suite of custom components have been developed for those practising flow based analysis. These components are now available commercially as stocked items. Global FIA provides a single source for many of the components needed to equip and maintain a flow-based analysis laboratory.
In recent years we have added a number of sampling components as well. These include:
All of these devices are available in the Global FIA store.
Global FIA will gladly work at developing components not commercially available and in doing so have accumulated a large toolbox of fluid handling devices. Custom-developed components are added to our product range to ensure ongoing support.
