Microfluidics offers superior drug encapsulation

27th June 2017

Dolomite Microfluidics is making microencapsulation technology more widely accessible with the Telos® droplet system, designed for high throughput and easy scale up. The modular components provide scientists with excellent process control, and the ability to choose from a range of particle diameters between 10 and 50 µm on a single piece of hardware.

Innovative drug delivery platform relies on Telos® Reagent Chips

4th May 2017

Telos® 2 Reagent Chips from Dolomite Microfluidics have helped San Francisco-based ProLynx LLC to develop a novel drug delivery platform. Jeff Henise, Director of Process Development at ProLynx, explained: “Traditional polymer encapsulation delivery systems rely on diffusion or breakdown of the polymer to release their payload. In contrast, our drug delivery system offers controlled release using self-cleaving linkers to attach the drug to hydrogel microsphere carriers....

Dolomite’s Fluidic Factory recognized with R&D 100 Award

24th November 2016

Dolomite, a world leader in microfluidics innovation, is celebrating the success of its Fluidic Factory 3D printer in the ‘Processing and Prototyping’ category this year’s R&D 100 Awards. This innovative system – the first commercially available 3D printer for fluidically-sealed devices – offers rapid, straightforward and reliable prototyping of microfluidic components, including chips, manifolds, connectors and other devices. Using cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) makes it easy and affordable to 3D print devices for almost any application.

From microcapsules to heavy industry

9th November 2016

Researchers at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) are using a Dolomite Fluidic Factory to help develop a novel carbon capture technology intended for industrial applications1. Mindy Simon, postdoctoral research associate, explained: “Carbon capture is important for power generation and other heavy industries, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide released into the atmosphere. Here at LLNL, we have developed an innovative microcapsule technology which consists of a highly permeable polymer shell surrounding a CO2-absorbing liquid core. These microcapsules can be loaded into columns which can then be placed into a smoke-stack or other industrial outlet, capturing the CO2 before it is released into the environment.”
