Life Science

Microfluidics provides capabilities to control cellular microenvironments with high spatiotemporal precision and to present cells with mechanical and biochemical signals in a more physiologically relevant context.

Microfluidics in Life Science

Microscopy and cell biology

Using flow cells or microfluidic chips along with a fluid perfusion system and microscopy allows progress in several applications including DNA or RNA hybridization, drug combination and long-term perfusion, or immunostaining.

Cell culture and Organ on a chip

This technology presents an ideal microenvironment to study molecular – and cellular-scale activities that underlie human organ function , as well as identify new therapeutic targets in vitro.

Digital PCR

Microfluidic dPCR offers a new level of precision compared to quantitative PCR (qPCR). Droplet-based microfluidic is an excellent solution to partition a sample.

Expertise & resources

Looking for another market?

From the life sciences to the food industry, many applications require the use of fluids driven at flow rates from nanoliters to milliliters per minute. At such low flows, the success of these applications strongly depends on the level of control and automation of the fluidic operations.

These applications require flow control systems that are adapted for ensuring their success.
