Components for the Droplet Starter Pack
The Droplet Kit (P/N=Dropkit01) is designed to be used with the Droplet Starter Pack. It contains the PDMS Droplet Chips with tubing and fittings needed for your experiment. It works with any Flow EZ™ pressure channels and FLOW UNITS models.
- Easy and friendly to use the EZ Drop chip
- Up to 4000 Hz (out of the Droplet Starter Pack)
- From 20 to 100µm droplets
- No complex connectors
- 20µm, 50µm and 100µm markers on the PDMS Droplet Chip
- Microscope slide dimensions
- Quality monitoring with a QR code
Yes, the size market at the nozzle are here to help you estimate the size of the droplets you are generating. The Droplet Starter Pack has been designed to have very stable flow-rates, as the microfluidic resistance is mainly within the chip. This means that the flow-rates will stay stable even with pressure control only, thus the droplet sizes.
Individual cell heterogeneity within a population has invalidated historic classification methods based on macroscopic considerations and given rise to new evaluation techniques based on single cell transcriptional signature. In this context, thanks to high throughput screening capacities, easy fluid handling and reduced costs related to device miniaturization, microfluidics has emerged as a powerful tool for […]
Micropipette aspiration is a powerful non-invasive technique to evaluate how biomechanical properties of single cells or tissue govern cell shape, cell response to mechanic stimuli, transition from nontumorigenic to tumorigenic state or morphogenesis. The Fluigent MFCS™-EZ and Flow EZ™ pressure controllers are particularly suited for this method since it requires applying forces ranging from 10pN […]
The Fluigent/Micronit organ-on-a-chip platform focuses on modeling the main biochemical and biophysical features of the native environment of cells in order to induce their growth and differentiation as functional tissues. Air-liquid interface, flow induced shear stress, mechanical stimulation, biochemical gradient, cell-cell coculture have been reported to significantly improve the functionality of in vitro models.
