Description

Elveflow’s Easy Droplet Generation Pack contains one pumping channel to flow the aqueous alginate phase and another pumping channel to push the continous oil phase and another pumping channel to push the continous oil phase through our droplet generation chip, enabling the generation of alginate droplets in oil. The droplet size is determined by the chip channel size and flow rate ratio of both phases.
Based on our high accuracy OB1 flow controllers, this all-in-one solution contains all the required parts for researchers to set up their own alginate beads generation system out of the box. It brings the many benefits of microfluidics, including excellent monodispersitysphericality, reproducibility, and high throughput compared to other hydrogel particle production techniques.

Highlights


A standard alginate beads generation pack contains one pumping channel to flow the aqueous alginate phase and another pumping channel to push the continuous oil phase through our droplet generation chip, enabling the generation of alginate droplets in oil.

The droplet size will be determined by the chip channel size and the flow rate ratio of both phases. Flow rates can be measured thanks to our multiple flow rate sensors (MFS or BFS series).

For the detailed experimental steps, please refer to our application note!
