Droplet generator devices

We make here our designs of microfluidic droplet generator devices freely available to download. They contain a single aqueous inlet. The different designs vary in their widths of the flow-focusing channel. If you use them, we kindly ask you to cite the corresponding reference:

Duarte, J. M., Barbier, I., Schaerli, Y.* (2017) Bacterial microcolonies in gel beads for high-throughput screening of libraries in synthetic biology, ACS Synth. Biol., 6: 1988–1995.

The files are in .dxf format and are readable and editable with a CAD software, such as DraftSight – a free CAD program.

If you would like to purchase these devices, we can recommend Wunderlichips.
