Dolomite launches new microfluidic interface for quick and reliable PDMS chip connection

Royston, UK | Posted on June 13th, 2012

PDMS chips are frequently used for academic work due to their low cost and short development time. However, it is often difficult and time consuming to make reliable fluidic connections to these devices.

Dolomite's PDMS Chip Interface allows users to create reliable, quick and leak-free fluidic connections to PDMS chips. Easy to use, the novel interface provides a flexible, time-efficient and robust solution for chips to be used outside the lab, which widens applications for PDMS chips beyond research as well as the opportunity for greater collaboration between research labs. Thanks to its outstanding sealing performance, the microfluidic device not only reduces the downtime for microfluidic experiments due to leakage issues but also allows rapid changeover between different chip designs to further increase productivity and user flexibility.

To be used with Dolomite's novel PDMS Chip Slide and Linear Connector 4-way, the PDMS Chip Interface accommodates a wide range of PDMS device heights making it easy for customers to design their own PDMS chips which are then mounted onto the PDMS Chip Slide. Chip lifetimes are also extended as the connection can be made multiple times without damage to the chip.
