Dolomite Celebrates a Successful 2012
News Feb 12, 2013
Success is thanks to the launch of a number of novel microfluidic products including the Porous Media Chip specially designed for petrochemical research, a range of compact Electro-Osmotic Pumps for easy integration into microfluidic systems as well as an innovative Closed-Loop Flow Control System which can be used together with Dolomite’s Mitos P-Pump for better control of micro-scale flow rates.
“2012 was another excellent year for Dolomite with sustained growth for the sixth consecutive year. The company again achieved record sales, with particular success in the Specialist Chemicals range having only been launched at the end of 2011,” said Lee Jeffries, COO of Dolomite. He continues “Dolomite also reinforced its position as a leader in droplet-forming products by becoming a licensee of the JST microdroplet generation technology and continues to invest heavily in R&D both in terms of software, recruitment, and the design of new standard products.”
A research team developed a microfluidic-based drug screening chip that identifies synergistic interactions between two antibiotics in eight hours. This chip can be a cell-based drug screening platform for exploring critical pharmacological patterns of antibiotic interactions, along with potential applications in screening other cell-type agents and guidance for clinical therapies.READ MORE
