Surfactants
Dolomite’s surfactants are specialised chemical solution designed the formation and stabilization of microdroplets.
Pico-Surf 13200211 Pico-Surf™ 1 is a specialised chemical solution containing a proprietary surfactant in fluorocarbon carrier oil. The surfactant acts as an interface stabilization agent that facilitates stability of micro-droplets under a wide range of temperature and biological conditions.
Pico-Surf 23200219 Pico-Surf™ 2 is a specialised chemical solution designed for the formation and stabilization of reliable picodroplets ranging from 25 µl to 100 µl in diameter. Picodroplets generated in Pico-Surf™ 2 are compatible with various biological assays and are particularly suitable for cell biology and protein analysis in mass spectrometry.
