Product group: droplet generators
I need a pumping system for my setup. Which one do you recommend?
We recommend using a high precision pumping system. Regular syringe pumps often don't work very well for droplet generators. There are several high precision pumping systems on the market that work with different pumping principles. To name one, we'd like to mention that we have had positive experiences with the equipment Fluigent offers: https://www.fluigent.com/
Which flowrates should I use?
This depends on many things. For example on the type of fluid that you are using. Check our flowrate instructions to find out how to start.
I only see streaks of fluids but no droplets. How do I get the droplets?
Decrease your flowrate. Check our flowrate instructions for a more acurate explanation.
Which surfactants should I use?
Use our surfactant guide for advice on surfactants.
How do I prevent clogging of my chips?
Have a look at our clogging prevention guide.
Should I use coated or uncoated droplet generators?
Have a look at our article about surface wetting properties.
