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.
Established in 2005 as the world’s first Microfluidic Application Centre,
Dolomite focused on working with customers to turn their concepts for microfluidic
applications into reality. Today, Dolomite is the world leader in solving microfluidic
problems. With offices in the UK and US and distributors throughout the rest
of the world, its clients range from universities developing leading-edge analytical
equipment, to manufacturers of chemical, life science and clinical diagnostics
Dolomite is pioneering the use of microfluidic devices for small-scale fluid
control and analysis, enabling manufacturers to develop more compact, cost-effective
and powerful instruments. By combining specialist glass, quartz and ceramic
technologies with knowledge of high performance microfluidics, Dolomite is able
to provide solutions for a broad range of application areas including environmental
monitoring, clinical diagnostics, food and beverage, nuclear, agriculture, petrochemical,
cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and chemicals. Furthermore Dolomite's in-house micro-fabrication
facilities that include clean rooms and precision glass processing facilities
allow to prototype and test all solutions rapidly which ensures a faster development
cycle and reduces the time to market.
