Diagnostic Platforms

One sample, one manipulation, multiple parameters, and a clean (closed) system: These are the characteristics of the microfluidic ChipShop diagnostic platform. The platform allows to carry out multiple immunoreactions at the same time. The sample is introduced safely and conveniently via a Luer-Lok adapter and is equally distributed and at the same time to the different reaction vessels. Here, the pre-pipetted antibodies (free, lyophilized, bead-coated) are localized via to microfluidic valves. Agglutination or colour reactions can be read out directly by eye.

The platform can be adopted flexibly to a large number of reactions to be carried out in parallel, different numbers of samples, or different reaction volumes. For a more sensitive assay, an optical system may be added for detection.
