The only droplet geneartor based on Piezo Technology

This droplet generator pack is based on our unique piezoelectric flow control technology which allows the user to operate the world’s fastest flow switch, with the smallest variation in flow stability that you can reach in microfluidics. The equipment used in this pack was chosen by main innovating actors in the field of droplets, such as Sphere Fluidics, deMello group, Bibette’s lab or Dr Say Hwa Tan group .

How does the droplet generator work ?

microfluidic droplet generator

  1. Continuous and dispersed phases are contained in the microfluidic tanks.
  2. The pressure controller pressurize microfluidic tanks and generate a pulseless flow of continuous and dispersed phases from tanks to microchip.
  3. Droplets are generated in the microchip. Their size, speed and composition will depend on the flow rate of the liquid coming from the microfluidic tank.
  4. Changing parameters in the software will almost instantaneously change the pressure of the tank, and then the flow rate of the liquid entering the chip.
