Optical systems capture microfluidic experiment data

April 13, 2011 — Dolomite, microfluidic designer and manufacturer, launched a range of optical systems that capture high-quality still and moving images of microfluidic experiments.

Click to EnlargeThe range of optical systems includes a high-speed camera and microscope system, providing a flexible solution for general microscopy including droplet generation and particle imaging. The system’s microscope offers zoom ratio of 7.5:1 and good working distance for a range of samples. The camera integrates with the microscope to capture images at over 1000 frames per second. The universal stand enables flexible microscope positioning.

The microscope stage is designed to accommodate all types of microfluidic chips and enables users to quickly locate and observe the area of interest. It can, for example, be used in conjunction with Dolomite’s Droplet Junction Chips for the improved visibility of droplet formation: droplet monodispersity, rate of production, and stability. The stage also features a 150W halogen cold light source with continuous dimming and no flicker effect at short exposure times.

Dolomite’s also offers a digital microscope that can be connected to a PC using a USB cable. The product is compact and low-cost for general microscopy, and Dolomite claims that it outweighs many of the USB microscopes currently available in image quality.
