Royston, UK (18th October 2013) – Microfluidics specialist Dolomite will be
showcasing two groundbreaking devices, Telos and Mitos Dropix, on booth #6
at the 17th International Systems for Chemistry and Life Sciences (MicroTAS) in
Freiburg, Germany, from the 27th to the 31st October.
The innovative Telos System is a breakthrough product for a wide range of industries
requiring a microfluidic device capable of high throughput droplet, particle and flow
product generation. This modular, scalable, and highly flexible technology removes the
low throughput limitation of individual microfluidic chips, enabling liters of droplets or
particles to be produced in a day. Each module accommodates a microfluidic chip with
up to seven channels and, for maximum throughput, up to 10 modules can be linked to
provide a total of 70 parallel channels; with tool-free module assembly and chip
connection, set-up is rapid. Telos features integrated valves for rapid start-up and
individual chip control, and operates over a wide range of pressures and temperatures,
from 0 to 10bar and 4 to 50°C, providing users with maximum flexibility.
The novel Mitos Dropix, developed in collaboration with the winner of Dolomite’s
Productizing Science® Competition 2012, Drop-Tech Ltd, is a flexible, automated
solution for droplet-on-demand applications. Patented droplet ‘picking’ technology
enables combinatorial droplet arrays to be created from multiple reagents off-chip and
introduced into a flow-through microfluidic system, with accurate control of droplet size
and frequency achieved via PC software. This new high throughput screening format will
prove an invaluable resource for basic research, drug discovery, cell-based studies and
