ALGINATE MICROBEADS PRODUCTION STATION

Alginate microbeads production station, P/N: OALGSTN-PCK

The Fluigent Alginate beads production station is a robust and complete system for producing outstanding monodispersed Alginates beads with flexibility in changing particle sizes production in hundreds of milliseconds without interrupting the production. Its performance is coming from the combination of Fluigent’s LineUP microfluidic pumps and the RayDrop device, a breakthrough technology for high-quality particles and beads production.

BENEFITS

Continuous production

High flexibility in Alginate beads size
