Dolomite Introduces Pressure-Based Droplet Starter System

Published on July 12, 2010 at 9:43 PM

Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has introduced the Pressure-based Droplet Starter System, which is ideal for the initial exploration of droplet microfluidics.

It provides a complete solution containing all necessary pumps, connectors and chips, enabling the immediate production of highly monodispersed droplets from Ø 20 to 150µm, with a Ø tolerance of +/- 1 %. Operating over a wide pressure range of 0 to 10bar, this Pressure-based Droplet Starter System is extremely chemically resistant and its modular design makes it easily expandable for future application requirements.

Providing a pulseless and stable liquid flow, this cost-effective modular toolkit eliminates dead volume and sample waste to effectively reduce associated reagent costs. In addition, the ability to provide a quick liquid changeover significantly increases the throughput of any application. A lockable pressure chamber and an innovative 3-way chamber lid allow simultaneous pumping of up to three liquids, making it ideal for entry-level experimentation.

For bespoke applications, Dolomite designs and manufactures custom chips, tailored to meet the requirements of any laboratory. For further information on Dolomite’s custom capabilities as well as the entire range of Micro Droplet Systems and the complete portfolio of microfluidic products, including chips, connectors/interconnects, pumps, valves and flow sensors, please visit
