Title
(EN) COMMON PORT EMULSION GENERATION SYSTEM
Abstract
(EN)

An article for forming emulsion droplets includes a body having an inlet port, an outlet, and a reservoir configured to receive both an aqueous phase and an organic phase through the inlet port. By applying a force to the contents of the reservoir, an aqueous phase stream and a separate organic phase stream from the reservoir are generated and later combined to form emulsion droplets which are dispensed through the outlet, typically into a receptacle for analysis or further processing.
