has introduced a new range of microfluidic valves and pumps which can be used
in isolation, in sub-systems, or built into fully integrated systems. The new
range of solenoid valves and metering pumps are incredibly small yet powerful
tools in microfluidics, offering the ability to provide very precise fluid control,
whilst maintaining a small overall system size.
The high-quality valves and pumps are made from inert materials such as PTFE
and PEEK for maximum chemical resistance. The novel solenoid valves and metering
pumps are designed with the smallest possible dead-volumes to maximise sample
availability, which is of the utmost importance in microfluidic systems. The
low dead volume also makes the valves ideal for integration with Dolomite's
microfluidic chips. The small installation area allows new opportunities in
designing complex systems with a very small footprint.
"With these new valves and pumps, we have introduced additional flexibility
into our customized microfluidic system solutions, increasing the range of possible
applications. With our extensive experience of solving microfluidic problems,
we really understand our customers' need so we provide true tailor-made microfluidic
systems", said Mike Hawes, Dolomite's Head of Marketing.
Dolomite specialises in custom devices and complete instrument design allowing
smaller, faster, cost-effective and more powerful systems to be developed. Dolomite's
versatile and innovative standard range of products also includes microfluidic
chips, connectors / interconnects and pumps
