Dolomite has introduced a new range of microfluidic valves and pumps which can be used in isolation, in sub-systems, or built into fully integrated systems. The new range of solenoid valves and metering pumps are incredibly small yet powerful tools in microfluidics, offering the ability to provide very precise fluid control, whilst maintaining a small overall system size.

Microfluidics experts offer new range of ultra small valves and pumps: Dolomite, world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, continues to exp

Royston, UK | Posted on January 20th, 2009

The high-quality valves and pumps are made from inert materials such as PTFE and PEEK for maximum chemical resistance. The novel solenoid valves and metering pumps are designed with the smallest possible dead-volumes to maximise sample availability, which is of the utmost importance in microfluidic systems. The low dead volume also makes the valves ideal for integration with Dolomite's microfluidic chips. The small installation area allows new opportunities in designing complex systems with a very small footprint.

"With these new valves and pumps, we have introduced additional flexibility into our customized microfluidic system solutions, increasing the range of possible applications. With our extensive experience of solving microfluidic problems, we really understand our customers' need so we provide true tailor-made microfluidic systems", said Mike Hawes, Dolomite's Head of Marketing.

Dolomite specialises in custom devices and complete instrument design allowing smaller, faster, cost-effective and more powerful systems to be developed. Dolomite's versatile and innovative standard range of products also includes microfluidic chips, connectors / interconnects and pumps
