■ What is a droplet?
We define DROPLET as water in oil droplets and gel microdroplets. The number of droplets can be made up to 10 million. The former exists as spherical water droplets in oil, and the latter exists as spherical gel in aqueous solution. It will be a vessel that encloses one by one. It is possible to react and culture in this vessel, and in recent years it has been attracting attention as a research tool.
This time, professors will give lectures on application examples and research details centering on this Water in Oil droplet technology. ■ Lecture contents

On-chip Droplet Selector (From October 2021)
A device that separates droplets at high speed and plates them automatically. One million droplets can be processed in hours. We succeeded in commercializing the world’s first general-purpose device using our unique technology.
On-chip Droplet Generator (From October 2015)
This device creates droplets of uniform size using a microfluidic chip. Since multiple types of channel chips can be used and the pressure can be varied, it is possible to generate optimal droplets according to the target to be confined, such as microorganisms and cells.
