The TCU-100 temperature controller enables extremely accurate control of chips or the µEncapsulator.
It provides and controls a fixed temperature from 1⁰C to 100⁰C, or generates rapid temperature ramps or thermocycling.
Microscope and analysis software
The High Speed Digital Microscope is designed specifically for microfluidic droplet analysis.
This high resolution imaging system allows users to conveniently monitor high speed microfluidic events such as
droplet formation. It ensures that millimetre to micrometre scale features can be visualised clearly, with the
benefit of an extra-long working distance. This allows clear imaging of moving droplets, beads or cells, enabling
quantitative analysis of droplet size at lower flow rates – typically below 1 kHz – and qualitative evaluation at
production speeds of 2-15 kHz or higher, depending on droplet size.
The Droplet Monitor Software is used for measuring droplet size, frequency, and monodispersity.
The Flow Control Centre (FCC) Advanced software enables accurate and simultaneous control of Dolomite Bio’s
systems and modules via a PC. It integrates control and analysis of pressures, flow rates, temperatures and
visualization of microscope feed. FCC Advanced enables automation via “FCC protocols”, which are automated
“wizard-like” scripts that control the systems.
Specialist droplet chemicals
Pico-Surf™ surfactants are biocompatible specialised chemical solutions containing a proprietary
biocompatible surfactant in a fluorocarbon carrier oil. They are ideal for generation of robust
and stable picodroplets over a wide temperature range.
