Microfluidic technology focusses on behavior of liquids and gases on micrometer scale. Application of this technology are conceivable whenever working with liquids, gases and solutes of which scaling is desirable or necessary.
The Microfluidic technique allows precise control (temperature and volume) and dosing of the fluid. Microfluidic devices are able to create micro droplets, bubbles or particles with high monodispersity because the technique creates each bubble or droplet individually. Microfluidics is a promising alternative, as it allows achieving complete laboratory protocols on a single chip.
Convergence already designed and developed a variety of Microfluidic systems. The INFINITY from EmulTech is one example out of many.
The EmulTech systems produce individual droplets in separate micro channels, also known as microfluidic emulsification. The system operates a highly controlled process for large scale droplet formation out of two or more liquids. The process takes place in channels of only a few microns wide. Once droplets are formed, they can be solidified in the channel by extracting the solvent or adding a third liquid, such as a cross-linker.
If you are looking for a partner that can design, assemble or upgrade your system Convergence would be happy to assist you!
