Royston, UK (11th March 2013) – Microfluidics experts Epigem and Dolomite are
pleased to announce their collaboration in the design and manufacture of
microfluidic devices offering customers more comprehensive product and service
The two companies join forces in the areas of product design and development
leveraging specialist capabilities of each corporation, with design and hardware based
activities carried out by Dolomite, and polymer process-based manufacturing carried
out by Epigem.
Epigem, a leading polymer micro engineering company, develops and manufactures
multifunctional microfluidic devices (especially for instrument OEMs) both in low and
high volume which Dolomite will distribute as part of its standard product range.
Furthermore, the collaboration will enable Epigem to access Dolomite’s Productizing
Science® capabilities including system solutions, full instrument design & manufacture,

Tim Ryan, Director of Epigem, comments: “Dolomite is a world leader in the design and
manufacture of microfluidic devices and system solutions. We are looking forward to
working with their engineers to secure additional distribution for both companies’
products and services.”
Dolomite will use Epigem’s capabilities to offer bespoke devices for specific customer
applications. Lee Jeffries, COO of Dolomite, says “Epigem has specialist polymer
processing capabilities which enable Dolomite to add capability to microfluidic chip
design. We are looking forward to working with Epigem and distributing a range of
devices which would not be possible using normal glass processing techniques”.
