Controls internal temperatures of microfluidic chips without disrupting fluid flow
Dolomite, a leader in microfluidic design and manufacture, with offices in the UK and US and distributors throughout the rest of the world, has expanded its temperature control systems with the introduction of the Hotplate Adaptor – Chip Holder H, which allows control over internal temperatures of microfluidic chips without any disruptions to the fluid flow.
The Hotplate Adaptor holds a microfluidic chip securely in position
The Hotplate Adaptor holds a microfluidic chip securely in position, enabling users to pre-heat or post-heat fluids with an integrated tube heater.
Operating over a temperature range up to 100°C, the adaptor is supplied with a removable lid that can be closed to maintain the chip at constant temperatures, which is important for cell-based analytical studies to maintain cell viability. A glass viewing window (22mm in diameter) facilitates microscopic observations.
The Hotplate Adaptor is for use with the Chip Interface H, and is compatible with Dolomite’s Linear Connector 4-way, 1.6mm tubing and microfluidic chips that have a footprint of 22.5mm x 15mm.
