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 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.

Dolomite’s range of System Solutions also includes Micro Droplet Systems that allow users to produce more than 10,000 highly monodispersed micro droplets per second ranging from 5μm up to 250μm in diameter.
