Based on standards, efficient interfaces, state-of-the-art communications technologies and protocols, we design system solutions in hardware and software so that complete energy self-sufficient electronic systems are produced from intelligent electronic units for complex control tasks.
Our electronic units are configured to be used where space is at a premium. Innovative energy management maximizes their autonomy time. The smallest signal variables are prepared with the aid of analog and digital technology via inductive and capacitive signal processing in such a manner that they can be made available over suitable communication paths to the process level or application level for control purposes. Implementation areas for these integrative systems solutions are special applications in the area of microsystem technology for autonomous and mobile systems and products.
Lab-on-a-chip systems are virtuosos in analysis control. For example, they enable complex assays to run fully automatically, reaction volumes to be reduced by several orders of magnitude, or high-grade analyses to run in parallel. This is made possible through the skillful use of effects on the micro-scale and macro-scale on disposable test elements.
The vision of lab-on-a-chip systems is the "pocket lab" that offers the functionality of a fully equipped analysis laboratory on a small test element. This is enabled through skilled control of fluids in micro-channels that are integrated in inexpensive plastic test elements.
Our research and development is oriented to efficient platforms for integration, automation, miniaturization, and parallelization of analyses and assays. In this regard we have years of experience in integrating established laboratory procedures, such as PCR, LAM P, RPA, immunoassays and enzymatic tests, but new, innovative, and customer-specific analyses can also be efficiently automated on our platforms. Moreover, we offer our own biological assays in the area of DNA/RNA analytics and immunoassays that are optimally suited for implementation in lab-on-a-chip systems.
We would be pleased to explain our product range to you in a personal contact. We are the right contact partner for your requirements in the lab-on-a-chip area.
