June 1, 2012 - Benfitting applications such as single cell analysis, screening, and PCR, Droplet System provides users with tools required to perform assays on individual cells in picolitre volume environments. System features microfluidic components and lets users load single cells or beads into droplets. Mitos P-Pump allows stirring of input fluid reservoir, providing even distribution of beads and delivering pulseless 2.8 Ám dia beads inside monodisperse droplets (100 Ám dia) as well as stable flow.

Royston, UK - Dolomite, a world leader in the design and manufacture of microfluidic devices, has successfully developed an innovative Droplet System for the encapsulation of single cells or beads into droplets which benefits a wide range of applications including single cell analysis, high throughput screening and droplet PCR.

The system represents a major breakthrough in microfluidics by providing users with the tools required to perform assays on individual cells in picolitre volume environments. This novel technology was demonstrated by feeding 2.8Ám diameter magnetic beads into monodisperse 100Ám diameter droplets at a ratio of 1 bead per droplet with minimal bead losses.

Featuring Dolomite's standard microfluidic components, the new system allows users to load single cells or beads into droplets. The Mitos P-Pump allows stirring of the input fluid reservoir, to provide an even distribution of beads and delivers a pulseless Bead 2.8 Ám diameter beads inside monodisperse droplets (100 Ám in diameter) and stable flow for excellent control of droplet volumes. Reliable and leak-free connections are made from pump to tube to chip using Dolomite's Multiflux« Linear Connectors.

Droplets are isolated in an inert fluorocarbon carrier stream to prevent crosscontamination and are stabilized with Pico-Surf(TM), a biocompatible surfactant designed specifically for generating and stabilizing pico-droplets.
