Dolomite Microfluidics is pleased to announce a new partnership with Emulseo – a start-up company dedicated to the design and production of high quality surfactants for droplet-based microfluidics – to distribute FluoSurf, a high performance continuous phase specifically formulated to stabilize aqueous droplets in microfluidic systems.

FluoSurf is compatible with a wide selection of reagents in the droplet phase that would disrupt the stability of emulsions formed with traditional stabilizers, and is ideal for applications in fields such as droplet formation and microencapsulation. This copolymer comprises ambiphilic polymer blocks that allow stabilization of the interface between aqueous droplets and fluorinated oils, with improved performance compared to competitor products. It offers fast droplet formation rates and enables the creation of highly stable emulsions of a broad range of monodisperse droplet sizes that can be readily broken when desired.

Quentin Jochyms, CTO and co-founder of Emulseo, commented: “FluoSurf was developed and optimized specifically for droplet-based microfluidics applications, and will meet the demand for a biocompatible surfactant that provides batch-to-batch reproducibility.”

Richard Gray, Vice President of Particle Engineering and Microfluidics at Dolomite Microfluidics, said: “We chose Emulseo as our partner to offer FluoSurf to our customers worldwide. We are delighted to be distributing this product, which will greatly improve the market for emulsion stabilizers, and look forward to a fruitful collaboration with Emulseo.”

Dr Florine Maes, CEO and co-founder of Emulseo, added: “It is a pleasure to join forces with Dolomite Microfluidics to bring FluoSurf to market, benefitting customers globally who are working in the field of droplet microfluidics.”
