Home > Press > Dolomite launches new microfluidic system enabling Nanoparticle Synthesis

Abstract:
Microfluidics expert Dolomite has extended its range of System Solutions to include an innovative Syringe-based Nanoparticle System allowing users to generate polymeric, metal and semi-conductor nanoparticles from 1nm to 100nm in diameter.

Dolomite launches new microfluidic system enabling Nanoparticle Synthesis

Cambridge, UK | Posted on December 16th, 2011

The development benefits a wide range of applications including biochemistry, drug delivery, biomolecular sensing and fibre-optics.

Built around Dolomite's industry leading microfluidic pumps, connectors and chips, this easy-to-use system enables rapid and effective mixing of up to two reagents of 25l to 10ml. Using extra smooth pumps to deliver the reagents into the mixing region, the Syringe-based Nanoparticle System ensures precipitates of uniformly sized particles occur consistently throughout the sample offering significant advantages over traditional techniques.

Operating over a wide flow range from 0.1l/min to 10ml/min, the system features a Sample Injection Valve reducing reagent consumption. An additional thermal control module ensures that constant temperatures are maintained throughout the experiment ideal for targeted heating in biomedical applications.

Dolomite's range of System Solutions also includes Micro Droplet Systems that allow users to produce more than 10,000 highly monodispersed micro droplets per second ranging from 5m up to 250m in diameter.

For further information on Dolomite's range of System Solutions and the complete portfolio of microfluidic products, including connectors/interconnects, pumps,
valves and pressure/flow rate sensors and custom devices, please visit
