Royston, UK (16th December 2011) – Microfluidics expert Dolomite has extended
its range of System Solutions to include an innovative Syringe-based Nanoparticle
System allowing users to generate polymeric, metal and semi-conductor nanoparticles
from 1nm to 100nm in diameter which benefit a wide range of applications including
biochemistry, drug delivery, biomolecular sensing and fibre-optics.
Built around Dolomite’s industry leading microfluidic pumps, connectors and chips,
this easy-to-use system enables rapid and effective mixing of up to 2 reagents of 25µl
to 10ml. Using extra smooth pumps to deliver the reagents into the mixing region,
the Syringe-based Nanoparticle System ensures precipitates of uniformly sized
particles occur consistently throughout the sample offering significant advantages
over traditional techniques.
Operating over a wide flow range from 0.1µl/min to 10ml/min, the system features a
Sample Injection Valve reducing reagent consumption. An additional thermal control
module ensures that constant temperatures are maintained throughout the
experiment ideal for targeted heating in biomedical applications.
Dolomite’s range of System Solutions also includes Micro Droplet Systems that allow
users to produce more than 10,000 highly monodispersed micro droplets per second
ranging from 5µm up to 250µm in diameter.
