Dolomite Leads the Way in Multi-way Fluidic Connections
(Nanowerk News) Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the new Mitos In-line Connector System. This innovative connector provides a single, fast and reliable multi-way connection, which offers extensive time savings when compared to traditional connections between individual pipes. In addition to being quick and easy to use, the Mitos In-line Connector provides in-line sealing and highly accurate
alignment between the tubes, enabling uninterrupted liquid flow.
Available in three standard sizes 4-, 8- and 12-way, the Mitos In-line Connector operates over a wide temperature (-15°C to 250°C) and pressure range (up to 10bar), providing excellent chemical compatibility. Furthermore, a low dead volume reduces the risk of cross-contamination between fluid samples, thereby maintaining experimental integrity.
The technology benefits a broad range of applications, including chemical and biological analysis, parallel microfluidic processing, providing multi-way fluidic connections between various laboratory equipment. In addition, it is compatible with a variety of polymeric tubes including PTFE, FEP and PEEK. Custom sizes and geometries are also available upon request.
