Pico-Gen™ single aqueous, oil inlet filter (40 x 40 µm nozzle)


Pico-Gen™ Picodroplet Generator Biochips are specially designed for generating picodroplets from a single aqueous source.

SKU: C101 Category: Tag:


Pico-Gen™ Picodroplet Generator Biochips* are specially designed for generating picodroplets from a single aqueous source. They enable reliable and consistent picodroplet formation with volumes ranging from as small as 60 picolitres up to 1,000 picolitres. Pico-Gen™ with a single aqueous inlet port and an oil inlet filter (40 x 40 µm nozzle) enables the generation of picodroplets 40 – 75 µm in diameter (35 – 220 pL in volume). All Pico-Gen™ Biochips have an oil inlet in-line filter, which minimizes potential blockage of the flow focus nozzles. Simple and safe ‘Plug & Play’ fluidic interfaces facilitate easy connection of PicoGen™ Biochips to external liquid reservoirs and picodroplet collection devices. All channel surfaces have fluorophilic properties that work perfectly with Sphere Fluidics’ specialist chemical products (e.g.Pico-Surf™, Pico-Break™).
