Dolomite's New Membrane Chip Interface Advances Multiple Microfluidic Applications
10/10/2013 8:20:37 AM
Royston, UK (10th October 2013) – Microfluidics specialist Dolomite is pleased to
announce the launch of its Membrane Chip Interface, a novel device designed
specifically for in-line liquid-liquid separation, liquid-liquid contacting, dead-end and
cross-flow filtration, and electrochemistry applications.
The easy-to-assemble Membrane Chip Interface comprises a porous PTFE membrane
mechanically secured between two microfluidic chips, and offers rapid set-up with just
standard 1/16” tubing; no additional tools or fittings are necessary. In its standard setup,
a 25mm hydrophobic membrane is held between identical top and base chips, with
tubing sealed directly to the chip to achieve a low internal volume of 60-l and minimize
the dead volume.
The Membrane Chip Interface has excellent chemical compatibility, and can
accommodate a wide range of temperatures and pressures, from 0 to 80°C, and 0 to
10bar. The innovative design enables good visibility of the membrane interface during
the reaction, allowing experimental observations to be made effortlessly. For maximum flexibility, different membranes and gaskets may be used between the glass chips – a
broad range of membranes can be supplied – and custom-designed chips are also
available, enabling a diverse array of reactions to be easily performed.
