Dolomite Announces Microdroplet IP Licence Arrangements With Japan Science and Technology Agency


8/23/2012 10:28:04 AM

Royston, UK (23th August 2012) – Microfluidics expert Dolomite is pleased to announce it is now a licensee of Japan Science and Technology Agency (“JST”) under JST’s microdroplet generation technology. Dolomite is authorised to grant sub- licences under JST’s microdroplet generation technologies.

Dolomite offers a wide range of Droplet-forming devices featuring different junction geometries, channel sizes and surface properties. Droplet based microfluidics is ideal for a wide range of applications, including compartmentalised chemistry, single cell analysis, high throughput screening, droplet PCR and emulsion studies. As a licensee of JST's microdroplet generation technology patent families WO2002/068104 and WO2005/089921, our customers may purchase and freely use Dolomite droplet chips for R&D purposes.

As part of the IP agreement, Dolomite is authorised to grant sub-licences under JST’s microdroplet generation technologies. Through the innovative use of our web shop, end-users can obtain sub-licences very simply, using only a credit card. Licences are issued on a per chip basis, and may be purchased in any quantity from one to one million. Dolomite CEO Andrew Lovatt commented: “We are very pleased to be able to offer this IP-licensing service to our clients, enabling them to continue with their droplet research free from concerns about violating this fundamental IP”.
