Dolomite Introduces Next Generation of Microfluidic Connectors and Interfaces
(Nanowerk News) Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced Multiflux-2, a new range of microfluidic connectors and interfaces offering unparalleled high density connection with 1.5 mm pitch between tubing lines for fast, reliable and precisely aligned connections between microfluidic chips, pumps, sensors, valves and other fluidic modules without disruptions to the fluid flow.
Examples of Multiflux- 2 range of Connectors and Interfaces.
The Dolomite approach of connecting tubes as a group has already become the standard for microfluidic connections due to its reliable sealing performance, ease-of-use and chemical compatibility. The universal design of Multiflux-2 brings these advantages to a wider user base allowing simplified fluidic routing and reduced assembly time in all types of lab instruments and systems. Furthermore these revolutionary devices increase opportunities for microfluidics to be scaled-up to production systems which benefits a wide range of applications including the droplet based generation of pharmaceutical products and high throughput bioanalysis tools.
Providing micro-scale alignment of flow paths with almost zero dead volume, Multiflux-2 offers advanced connectors that meet the demands of the microfluidics world as well as supporting emerging products in diagnostics, bio-technology and chemical synthesis. The compact package and robust construction allows use in a variety of scenarios and applications.
