Lab-on-a-Chip platforms for diagnostics are based on the reliable handling of micro- to nanoliter reaction volumes and parallel sample processing. In digital microfluidics small droplets can be flexibly manipulated electrically under software control to perform complex liquid handling routines. In addition to pure transportation routines, the firm has experience with merging, mixing and splitting of droplets as well as droplet generation. This accommodates the routines required in lab-on-a-chip operation. It is possible to configure assay routines according to the application needs using programmable electrodes. Specialising in digital microfluidics, the company offers development services for the design of customer specific platforms. Microfluidics, microactuation and micromechanics constitute the company’s technological focus.
