Dolomite facilitates control over internal temperatures of microfluidic systems

Royston, UK | Posted on February 14th, 2011

Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, has expanded its range of temperature control systems introducing the Hotplate Adaptor - Chip Holder H which allows control over internal temperatures of microfluidic chips without any disruptions to the fluid flow.

The use of temperature control systems is vital for many applications including nanostructure generation, controlled microreactions, and droplet microfluidics where droplets can be kept at certain temperature to prevent a solidification reaction until the droplets have left the chip.

Holding a microfluidic chip securely in position, the Hotplate Adaptor enables users to pre-heat or post-heat fluids by using the integrated tube heater. Operating over a wide temperature range up to 100°C, the adaptor is supplied with a removable lid that can be closed to maintain the chip at constant temperatures which is important for cell-based analytical studies to maintain cell viability. A glass viewing window (22mm in diameter) facilitates microscopic observations.

Quick and easy to use, the Hotplate Adaptor has been specifically developed for the Chip Interface H, and is compatible with Dolomite's Linear Connector 4-way, 1.6mm tubing and microfluidic chips that have a footprint of 22.5mm x 15mm.

For further information on Dolomite's range of temperature control systems and the complete portfolio of microfluidic products including connectors/interconnects, pumps, valves and pressure/flow rate sensors as well as custom devices please visit www.dolomite-microfluidics.com
