Dolomite Launches New Microfluidic System Enabling Nanoparticle Synthesis
Product News Dec 19, 2011
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 which benefit 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 2 reagents of 25μl 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 0.1μl/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.
