Translating biochemical processes to microfluidic format is a complex endeavour - integrating science, micro-engineering and commercial manufacturing.
We understand your assay - and then some
We know that understanding your assay is critical to creating a successful microfluidic point-of-care device, but that's just the beginning. Adaptation of biochemical processes to a microfluidic format is not a straightforward or predictable process of just scaling down each assay step. It is a complex endeavour interfacing biochemistry with micro-engineering, manufacturing automation, supply-chain logistics, regulatory constraints, commercial concerns and more.
Our in-house bioscience capability is dedicated to solving these complex problems in order to translate your science into real world products destined for commercial success.
Microfluidic assay commercialisation
The key challenge of developing practical microfluidic point-of-care diagnostic tools is to successfully integrate assay chemistry with microfluidics, hardware and software. This requires an in-depth understanding of the assay workflow to ensure the developed product is fit for purpose.
If you have an assay concept that is not fully verified, we can assist with the additional development required to finalise the workflow.
If your assay is already functioning in a microfluidic environment our team can partner with you to transfer this to a manufacturable product.
Choose the bio experts
Our dedicated team of scientists provide technical expertise and guidance on the adaptation and transfer of biological assays and systems onto microfluidic platforms through understanding the impact of the micro-engineered environment on each biological assay step.
Our team has expertise in assay development and translation across molecular, cellular and immunological applications including PCR, ELISA, antibody conjugation, cell cultures, reagent spotting and fluorescence microscopy. This team works closely with engineers and stakeholders throughout product development process guiding assay translation activities such as sample preparation, assay reaction(s) between sample and reagents, and analyte detection.
