Dolomite Launches Resealable Chip Interface System
Dolomite has launched a Pressure-driven Resealable Chip Interface System designed for applications requiring quick and easy access to the microfluidic chip surface. Compact and robust, this easy-to-use system enables tool-free assembly of glass, quartz or polymer resealable chips, allowing the user to deposit reagents, sensors, biosensors or cells onto the chip base layer for exposure to the fluid stream.
The modular, flexible system comprises a Resealable Chip Interface - allowing up to eight fluidic and eight electrical connections per chip - 4-way linear connectors, and Mitos Pressure Pumps for pulseless, stable flow from 70 nl to 5 ml a minute, at pressures of up to 10 bar. For direct, accurate control of flow rates, Mitos Flow Rate Sensors can also be included.
The versatile Resealable Chip Interface System is ideal for a broad range of applications, including biosensor testing, cell culture analysis, dielectrophoresis experiments, impedance detection and applications where cleaning or replacement of some parts of the system is required between experiments.
The system is also compatible with a range of microscope systems - for straightforward imaging and recording - and Dolomite’s optional Mitos PPump Remote Chambers, which allow up to 30 ml of fluid to be conveniently located in a pressurized, sterile environment for easy temperature control or agitation, ensuring users can develop a set-up to meet their application needs.
