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.”
Dolomite and Lab on a Chip Video Competition winner cooks up a treat
24th October 2016
This year's MicroTAS Video Competition has been won by Enrica Rollo from EPFL (École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne) in Switzerland, for her entertaining comparison between cleanrooms and kitchens. The annual competition – run by microfluidics specialist Dolomite and Lab on a Chip, and supported by the Chemical and Biological Microsystems Society – embraces the lighter side of life sciences and chemistry, while giving delegates a chance to win €2,500 worth of Dolomite microfluidics equipment.
