Dolomite Advances Droplet Research
(Nanowerk News) Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the modular Syringe-based Droplet Starter System, which enables users to produce more than 10,000 monodispersed droplets per second, ranging from Ø 20 to 250µm.
Operating over a wide flow range, from 0.1µl/min to 10ml/min, this chemically resistant system is ideal for initial concept work and experimentation towards the development of high throughput droplet systems. Including a range of Droplet Junction Chips with different geometries, channel sizes and surface properties, the Syringe-based Droplet Starter System enables the formation of both water-in-oil and oil-in-water droplets.
This easy-to-use system is the latest addition to Dolomite's Micro Droplet System range and comprises of two independent syringes, with rotary valves, enabling fast automatic refill from up to 3 different sources, as well as an independent control of each liquid channel. As a modular system, the pump and droplet generation components are quick and simple to connect, ensuring that reliable and accurate data is obtained within a short time-span.
Dolomite also designs and manufactures custom chips to meet the requirements of any laboratory.
