Most simple droplet generation kit
Easy droplet generation
The Droplet Kit 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.
- Highly monodisperse
Down to 2% CV
Large droplet range
Large droplet range
Using the EZ drop chip, water-in-oil droplets with a diameter ranging from 20 µm to more than 100 µm diameter can be generated.
Higher generation rate
Using the best configuration, droplets can be generated at a frequency of up to 4 000 Hz (out of the droplet starter pack)
No complex connectors, microscope slide dimensions, and 20 µm, 50 µm, and 100 µm markers on the PDMS Droplet Chip to determine droplet size.
Highly monodisperse droplets
|EZ drop chips x3|
|2 m tubing (250 µm ID; 1/32″ OD)|
|Channels cross-section at the junction||30 x 30 µm|
|Channel depth elsewhere||30 µm|
|Channel total length after the junction||6.60 mm|
|Channel total length (inner to outer tubing)||oil: 21 mm water: 13 mm|
Can I reorder the EZ drop chips alone?
Of course, the chips can be ordered separately from the whole Droplet Starter Pack. We invite you to get in touch with our sales representatives or with your local distributor.
Can I know the droplet size using pressure only?
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.
