Dolomite Launches High Throughput System Enabling to Generate up to 30,000 Monodispersed Droplets Per Second
(Nanowerk News) Dolomite, a world leader in the design and
manufacture of microfluidic devices, has extended its range of System Solutions to
include a Parallel Droplet System, a reliable and versatile high throughput system for
the production of up to 30,000 monodispersed micro droplets per second ranging from
20µm to 60µm in diameter.
Built around Dolomite’s industry leading Mitos P-Pump and recently launched range of
Multiflux® connectors and interfaces, the Parallel Droplet System allows users to create
stable monodisperse water-in-oil or oil-in-water droplets benefiting a broad range of
applications such as microparticle manufacturing for pharmaceutical drug encapsulation
and emulsion manufacturing for food research and production. Featuring Dolomite’s
innovative 6-Junction Droplet Chip with 6 individual flow-focussing junctions, the
system is capable of consistently producing up to 600ml of emulsion over a 24-hour
Dolomite’s novel Parallel Droplet System.
Together with Dolomite’s Flow Resistors and Flow Sensors for closed loop flow control,
the system offers users maximum flexibility enabling them to adjust pressure to control
pulse free flow rates as well as optimise the system for a wide range of fluids, droplet
sizes and frequency.
Dolomite’s team of microfluidic experts will be running an exclusive live demonstration
of this new system at the upcoming Lab-On-A-Chip European Conference in Barcelona.
