Dolomite is a licensee of Japan Science and Technology Agency ("JST") under JST's microdroplet generation technology. This enables our customers to purchase and use our droplet chips for R&D purposes without any restriction from this comprehensive IP family.

  • Monodispersity of droplets: extremely monodisperse (CV < 5%)
  • Samples volumes: from 0.5 mL to several liters
  • Chemical resistance: very high (wetted materials: PEEK, PTFE and glass)
  • Pump pressure range: 0-10 bar
  • Flow rate range: from 5 nL/min to >100 mL/min (depending on pressure, viscosity and flow resistance)
  • Droplet generation frequency: typically up to 10 kHz for a standard system and 500 kHz for a production system (depending on reagents and droplet sizes)
  • Droplet size: typically from 2 µm to 250 µm (depending on chip)
