Dolomite Advances Droplet Research
New Syringe-based Droplet Starter System enables high throughput droplet experimentations
Royston, UK - Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the modular Syringe-based Droplet Starter System, which enables users to produce more than 10,000 monodispersed droplets per second, ranging from Ø 20 to 250µm. Operating over a wide flow range, from 0.1µl/min to 10ml/min, this chemically resistant system is ideal for initial concept work and experimentation towards the development of high throughput droplet systems. Including a range of Droplet Junction Chips with different geometries, channel sizes and surface properties, the Syringe-based Droplet Starter System enables the formation of both water-in-oil and oil-in-water droplets.
This easy-to-use system is the latest addition to Dolomite's Micro Droplet System range and comprises of two independent syringes, with rotary valves, enabling fast automatic refill from up to 3 different sources, as well as an independent control of each liquid channel. As a modular system, the pump and droplet generation components are quick and simple to connect, ensuring that reliable and accurate data is obtained within a short time-span.
Dolomite also designs and manufactures custom chips to meet the requirements of any laboratory. For further information on Dolomite's custom capabilities and the complete range of Micro Droplet Systems, please visit www.dolomite-microfluidics.com.
