Royston, UK (1st March 2012) – Dolomite’s new Multiflux® range proves to be a
huge success with over 130 customers using the innovative microfluidic connectors
and interfaces since their launch in February 2011.
Microfluidic specialist Dolomite has announced that Multiflux® has significantly
exceeded all expectations for market take-up with sales in over 30 countries. The
novel range of microfluidic connectors and interfaces provides users with fast and
reliable multi-way fluidic connections, between chips, pumps, valves and other fluidic
modules, increasing user flexibility without disruptions to the fluid flow.
Dolomite is currently developing a new PDMS Chip Interface which allows users to
create multiple connections to PDMS-on-glass devices and PDMS chips. Available for
purchase later this year, this microfluidic interface provides a flexible, time-efficient
and robust solution for chips to be used outside the lab which widens applications for
PDMS chips beyond research as well as the opportunity for greater collaboration
between research labs.
Multiflux® is an example of the company’s ongoing commitment to provide innovative
solutions which are essential for efficient and successful microfluidic research.
Dolomite is currently in discussions with a number of major commercial players who
would like to adopt the Multiflux® standard as part of their microfluidic devices and
