Government award to develop microfluidic system
Dolomite has been awarded a SMART grant from the UK government to make microfluidics more accessible.
The project will consist of prototyping a suite of integrated tools, specifically targeted at microfluidics users in research and education, with the ambition of providing a sophisticated suite of intelligently co-ordinated capabilities.
The suite will be based around a modern touch-screen interface enabling clear visualisation of data and virtual reconfiguration of the connected hardware.
“At Dolomite, we believe the scientist should be free to focus on science and not have to worry about finding the right tools for their job. That’s why we will provide researchers with a next generation of plug and play microfluidic platforms for use in the laboratory .” Dolomite’s CEO, Andrew Lovatt explained.
This project will benefit areas such as food science, pharma and petrochemical research.
“Although we could develop these tools as isolated products, it is only though the support of the UK Government that Dolomite can invest in far reaching product development and enable researchers to move to the next level of productivity,” added Lovatt.
The “plug and play” microfluidic system is expected to launch during 2013.
The Porous Media Chip provides representative modelling of complex porous sandstone rock structures.
Dolomite has launched a new microfluidic interface that is capable of providing quick and reliable PDMS chip connections.
Dolomite and GigaGen have collaborated to develop a droplet merging technology for parallel single cell genetic analysis
Dolomite and Clearbridge BioMedics have collaborated to develop a new instrument capable of detecting and isolating Circulating Tumour Cells (CTCs) from small quantities of whole, unprocessed blood.
Dolomite has introduced the Mitos P-Pump Remote for microfluidics.
