Software Development Kit

For the integration of our devices into your application

Read documentation online

The CETONI SDK is a high-performance development package for the integration of a wide variety of CETONI devices and systems into your applications. Like the CETONI Elements software, the SDK follows a modular concept and consists of the individual device libraries available for each device type (positioning system, pump, controller, I/O…) and the respective programming interfaces (APIs) with all of their functions.

Windows / Linux Libraries

For 32-bit and 64-bit Development Environments

All programming libraries are available as 32-bit or 64-bit Windows DLLs or as 64-bit Linux shared libraries (so. Files) and can thus be integrated into all development environments that support the use of shared libraries / DLLs. These include:

  • Qt Framework + QtCreator
  • Microsoft Visual C, Visual Studio .NET, Visual Basic
  • National Instruments LabVIEW
  • Matlab
  • embarcadero RAD Studio, Delphi, C++ Builder

Pump Library

With the Pump Library, you integrate the high-precision dosing of Nemesys pumps into your application. Create the smallest fluid streams or precisely dose specific volumes with the extensive functionality of this library.

Valve Library

Whether digital flipper valve, ball valve, multiport rotary valve or pneumatic high pressure valve, with the valve library you control all your valves via a uniform programming interface with few functions.

Motion Control Library

This library contains all the functions for integrating CETONI multi-axis positioning systems, such as Rotaxys and Nemaxys, and single axes into your applications.

Controller library

The controller library makes the integration of the CETONI reaction modules (e.g. Qmix Q + or Qmix TC) child’s play. Use it, for example, to control the temperature of your syringe heater or to dose pressure-controlled with your Nemesys pumps.

Analog I/O library

Read analog inputs and write analog outputs – that’s what you do with this library. Regardless of whether it is a Qmix I/O module or a Nemesys I/O interface – you have a uniform interface for all analog inputs and outputs.

Digital I/O library

The Digital I/O Library is perfect for you if you want to work with the digital inputs or outputs of the Qmix I/O modules or if you want to integrate external devices via the I/O signals of the Nemesys I/O interface.

Complete LabVIEW integration

Save time and money when integrating our flow systems and microfluidic accessories into your LabVIEW applications with the LabVIEW Integration Kit from our SDK. The kit contains over 140 virtual instruments (VIs), which simplify and accelerate the development of your LabVIEW applications considerably.

* The LabVIEW Kit only supports LabVIEW on Windows systems.


  • More than 140 ready-made VIs for almost all functions of CETONI devices
  • Clear grouping and color coding of the VIs by function
  • LabVIEW-compliant error handling
  • Sample VIs to get you started quickly
  • supports LabVIEW 32-bit and 64-bit

CETONI SDK for Python

Developing microfluidic applications at the speed of light

Python is the fastest growing programming language and the most popular programming language for artificial intelligence (AI) & deep learning, and thus the language of data science. Based on our Windows and Linux libraries (shared libraries), you will receive a complete *Python integration from us. All functions and devices are fully supported – for Windows and Linux (x86). With Python as a “Rapid Application Development” tool (RAD) and our SDK, you can solve small automation problems extremely quickly or implement complex microfluidic processes.

*The Qmix Python SDK was developed and tested with Python 3.6.5.

SiLA 2 Drivers

Integration of CETONI devices in SiLA 2 environments

Read documentation online

The CETONI SDK contains SiLA 2 drivers for all CETONI devices. Whether you want to integrate our high-precision Nemesys syringe pumps, our I/O- or reaction modules or our sample handlers via SiLA – for all devices the corresponding drivers are available in the SDK.

Never heard of SiLA? SiLA stands for standardization in laboratory automation. The mission of SiLA is to create an international, open connectivity standard in lab automation. It is is a communication standard for laboratory instruments, such as readers, liquid handling robots, chromatography and other analytical equipment. You can find more information about SiLA on the official SiLA website or in this interesting blog post about SiLA.
