March 11, 2009: Dolomite, a microfluidics company, has launched its Mitos Syringe Pump Extra Smooth (XS) (PDF 383KB), a versatile pumping solution making complex and powerful microfluidic technologies possible, the company announced in a news release.
The pump system, the company said, has been built on the success of the original Mitos Syringe Pump, but now incorporates a virtually pulse-free flow rate.
Designed for applications such as droplet generation, reagent dispensing, cell manipulation, microreactions and any application where precise control over fluid flow is required, the Mitos Syringe Pump XS removes pulsation through advanced drive electronics to provide an exceptionally smooth flow.
With the ability to programme two six-port valves and two syringes to operate in a number of different configurations, a broad range of fluid delivery capabilities are possible. Also, according to the company, the unit can be controlled directly via the intuitive user interface or the PC software. Fluid can be dispensed either by volume or flow rate over a definable period of time with the ability to create unique flow profiles.
With an extremely small footprint (260mm × 160mm × 250mm), the Mitos Syringe Pump XS addresses the requirement for a smooth-flow microfluidic system without occupying valuable laboratory space.
