Alginate microbeads production station


    A system for producing monodisperse alginate beads

    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.
