a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the new
Mitos Sensor Units to provide a flexible system for measuring and displaying
pressure and flow rates in microfluidic systems. With a real-time display and
low internal volumes, each sensor is designed to minimise interference with
the liquid flow.
All data is clearly displayed on the Mitos Sensor Display unit, which interfaces
with each of the sensor units using a simple push-and-click action. Comprising
of 5 flow rate sensors and 1 pressure sensor (-0.5 – 30bar), the complete
range is fully interchangeable and each device can run stand-alone or integrated
with a Mitos P-Pump for the efficient logging of flow rate output. All data
is easily transferrable to a PC for further analysis via USB.
Mitos Sensor Display and Pressure Sensor
Ongoing enhancements to the system will soon enable the flow rate sensors to
communicate with the Mitos P-Pump to create a closed loop pumping system. This
will enable the user to automatically control flow rates using pressure, providing
the ultimate in smooth liquid flow.

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 sciences 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.
