Royston, UK (5th July 2012) – Microfluidics expert Dolomite has enhanced its world
leading Mitos P-Pump range with the introduction of intelligent closed-loop Flow
Control which provides unparalleled control of flow rates from 70 nl/min to 5 ml/min.
The improved flow rate precision of the new software benefits the fields of droplet
generation, micro process engineering and microreaction kinetics.
By connecting a Mitos Flow Rate Sensor in-line between the pump and microfluidic
device, users can enter a flow rate target directly on the Mitos P-Pump itself with no
need for a PC. Systems can be extended to multiple P-Pumps, which will all control
flow rate independently. Featuring quick changeover between flow control and
pressure control, users can continue to enjoy the outstanding flow smoothness of the
pressure driven Mitos P-Pump, but with even more accurate control over the delivery
of picolitre reagent volumes into the system.
Operating in flow control mode provides quantifiable benefits in droplet microfluidics.
Dolomite’s flow control software has set a new benchmark for droplet monodispersity
with a CV < 0.14 % measured for the droplet size over long time periods.
