The new system utilises microfluidic technology underlying the company’s existing Nadia Instrument
UK-based instrumentation company Dolomite Bio has launched a microfluidic system for custom microfluidic and genomics research.
This new system combines the microfluidic technology underlying the company’s Nadia Instrument, with the customisable parameters of the Nadia Innovate, granting access to the custom microfluidic protocol development without the necessity of large capital outlay.
Currently most custom microfluidic research is performed using older complex modular systems. These are notoriously tricky and time consuming to set up, unreliable and require some level of expertise in microfluidics to be effective. In contrast, Nadia Go has a small footprint, no tubing, no PDMS, uses single use chips, and has a semi-automated set up, with parameters controlled through an easy-to-use PC software.
We’ve gone further to democratise science by developing the Nadia Go, a cost-effective system making microfluidics accessible to an even greater number of researchers
In addition to solving the drawbacks of modular systems, Nadia Go is a completely open platform, created with the ‘tinkerers’ in mind. Using Dolomite Bio’s core pressure-controlled microfluidics technology, Nadia Go enables the development of user-defined single cell protocols and applications. Create, change, test and save novel protocols and biological workflows through the adjustment of user defined parameters such as droplet size, droplet frequency, temperature, agitation, and timing.
Mark Gilligan, the CEO for Dolomite Bio, spoke about the drive behind the Nadia Go launch: “We’ve gone further to democratise science by developing the Nadia Go, a cost-effective system making microfluidics accessible to an even greater number of researchers.”
This unique product is an exciting addition to any lab interested in custom microfluidic research, or to compliment research performed using standardised applications on other instruments for single cell research.
