Connecting the World of Microfluidics Dolomite's Multiflux Connectors and Interfaces
(Nanowerk News) Dolomite's new Multiflux® range proves to be a huge success with over 130 customers using the innovative microfluidic connectors and interfaces since their launch in February 2011.
Microfluidic specialist Dolomite has announced that Multiflux® has significantly exceeded all expectations for market take-up with sales in over 30 countries. The novel range of microfluidic connectors and interfaces provides users with fast and reliable multi-way fluidic connections, between chips, pumps, valves and other fluidic modules, increasing user flexibility without disruptions to the fluid flow.
Dolomite is currently developing a new PDMS Chip Interface which allows users to create multiple connections to PDMS-on-glass devices and PDMS chips. Available for purchase later this year, this microfluidic interface provides a flexible, time-efficient and robust solution for chips to be used outside the lab which widens applications for
