Dolomite has launched Mitos Dropix, a droplet-on-demand system capable of generating miniaturised droplet compartments with control over volume, environment and isolation of contents.
Meeting the increasing demand for screening massive numbers of biological reactions, increased speed of screening and reduced reagent consumption, Mitos Dropix provides liquid sampling and processing over a 10 nL – 50 ?L volume range utilising droplet technology.
The product is designed to be invaluable for applications such as droplet library creation, cell encapsulation, diagnosis screening, synthetic chemistry and drug bioassays, as well as being applicable to high-throughput screening formats.
Mitos Dropix is a compact, off-chip droplet generator that features a patented droplet ’picking’ technology.
It was developed under exclusive sub-licence with Drop-Tech Ltd. having won Dolomite’s 2012 Productising Science competition. Drop-Tech was formed from an academic collaboration between Cambridge University and Imperial College London and is the exclusive licensee of the patented droplet generation technology used in Mitos Dropix.
Features include 24 wells, allowing users to combine multiple reagents to create complex assays, and resulting in up to 300 combinations.
Eight Dropix Sample Strips can also be inserted into the Dropix Sample Strip Holder, creating a 192 well plate configuration which facilitates preparation and allows integration with existing standard fluid handling systems.
Mitos Dropix is capable of consistently generating and storing up to 1000 droplets, with accurate user-defined control of droplet size (ranging in volume from a few 10s of nanoliters to a microliter) and frequency (up to 5Hz of one sample) achieved via Dropix PC software.
