Dolomite Announces Exclusive Agreement with Fluika
News Aug 05, 2014
Dolomite has signed an agreement with Fluika to exclusively distribute a range of low-pressure and low-vacuum generator pumps. Fitting into Dolomite’s range of Mitos microfluidic products, Mitos Fluika Pressure and Vacuum Generator Pumps are compact, lightweight and ideal for easy OEM integration into experimental set-ups.
Benefitting from fully USB control and power with no extra supplies or cables required, the pumps offer a low-cost pressure and vacuum generation solution useful to microfluidic pressure-driven flow control, perfusion systems and flow cells and miniature robotics and actuators.
Designed to provide pressurized air or vacuum with fast and accurate pressure control, the Mitos Fluika Pressure and Vacuum Generator Pumps are extremely easy to set up and use, requiring no gas supply or external vacuum pumps.
The Mitos Fluika Low Pressure Pump is ideal for pressures above atmospheric pressure and the Mitos Fluika Low Vacuum Generator Pump for pressures below atmospheric pressure.
Both pumps are capable of controlling pressures in volumes of 1-100ml and have a pressure accuracy of 5 mbar, with better flow stability compared to peristaltic and syringe microfluidic pumps. They are miniature in size (10 x 6 x 3 cm) and are easy to interface with pneumatic quick-fit connectors.
There is also an easy-to-use, ultra-portable Mitos Fluika Control Valve device for multiplexing four output channels between two input channels, making it ideal for applications that require fast switching between two pressure or vacuum levels.
Mr Tanel Ainla, CEO of Fluika said of the exclusive agreement: "I am very happy to co-operate with Dolomite in bringing our affordable pressure control solutions to a wider microfluidics community”.
