Synthetic Boundary

Unlike Band Forming centerpieces, Synthetic Boundary centerpieces have very small capillary channels for transferring fluid from the reference (left) to the sample (right) channel. These tiny channels ensure that the fluid transfer is very slow. This gentle transfer, which occurs at higher velocities, avoids disturbing the boundary between the two fluids and produces a sharply defined boundary.

Some applications for Synthetic Boundary Centerpieces are:

  • Diffusion coefficient determination
  • Study of very low sedimentation coefficient materials
  • Extinction coefficient determination
