Sample Analysis

Functional components for microfluidic devices designed to meet or exceed the tightest analytical performance requirements.

Improve patient outcomes by exceeding today’s analytical performance requirements

Reduced samples and reagent volume, lower costs and shorter analysis times are just a few of the recent advances in microfluidic systems requiring enhanced analytical performance. High–fidelity multiplex and multiclass assays synergize components and advances in nanotechnology, molecular diagnostics, microfluidics and microelectronics.

These technologies are being developed in new and powerful measurement tools within a small device footprint.
