Sphere Fluidics files new UK patent on novel surfactants for use in picodroplet microfluidics.

More Information: “Surfactants are important chemicals that ensure high performance and reproducibility in picodroplet-based assays”, said Dr Marian Rehak (R&D Director). “Our chemists have invented a novel range of surfactant structures which are biocompatible, highly stable and give outstanding performance on our Cyto-Cartridges™ and biochips. We have decided to patent these molecules and will add them to our emerging range of Cyto-Mine® consumables”.
