Royston, UK (17th November 2011) – Dolomite, a world leader in the design and manufacture of microfluidic devices, has launched a new white paper addressing the challenges faced by engineers and scientists when working with microfluidic connections.

Traditional solutions for tube-to-tube and tube-to-chip connections, which consist of a selection of unions, take up a lot of space and involve a time consuming set-up and problem of sealing when using multiple unions. Furthermore they only allow the connection of one fluid tube at a time.

The white paper is an example of Dolomite’s commitment to constant product development as well as the company’s ambition to advance microfluidic technologies in order to provide innovative solutions that are essential for efficient and successful microfluidic research.

Listening to their customers, Dolomite’s design engineers have overcome the challenges around fluidic connections and introduced Multiflux™, an industry-leading range of microfluidic connectors and interfaces that enables the fast and easy interconnection between a range of fluidic systems without disruptions to the fluid flow.

The white paper illustrates how Multiflux™ Connectors and Interfaces benefit a variety of different applications by creating reliable multi-way fluidic connections between fluidic modules including tube-to-chip, tube-to-manifold, chip-to-chip, as well as tube-to-tube connections.
