Dolomite Launches New Electro-osmotic Pumps for Fast and Easy Integration Into Microfluidic Systems
(Nanowerk News) In collaboration with Osmotex, Dolomite, a
world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has launched a new range of
advanced Electro-osmotic Pumps (EO Pumps) which can significantly reduce the
influence of electrochemistry and bubble formation in microfluidic systems compared to
conventional EO pumps.
As part of Dolomite’s new OEM modules and components, the compact low power
pumps are extremely small in size, ideal for easy integration into custom systems and
portable instruments where space is at a premium. The range includes two EO Pump
Cores, Basic and Bubble Free, as well as an EO Pump Open Interface with 1/4 - 28
outlet offering increased user flexibility.
Operating over a wide flow range from 5l/min to 150l/min the microfluidic devices
can be used with a number of fluids, such as DI water, ionic solutions and alcohols,
benefiting a broad range of industries and applications including consumer electronics,
medical instruments, fuel cells and microfluidic experimentations.
Dolomite also offers customized solutions for higher flow rates and pressure and can
assist with the integration of cores into custom designed holders. In the future,
Dolomite will be providing self-priming EO Pumps as well as solutions with flow-sensor
feedback control using its Mitos Flow Sensor range.
For further information on Dolomite’s range of OEM modules and components as well as
a complete portfolio of microfluidic products including chips, connectors/ interconnects,
valves and custom devices please visit www.dolomite-microfluidics.com.
