Features & Accomplishments

  • Highly efficient rapid filtration-based, fractionation concentration platform that concentrates biological particles that are suspended in liquid-form from a feed suspension
  • Instrument-actuated 7 state microfluidic valve in a sliding configuration. Low-cost, reliable and high-pressure capable
  • Achieved precision engagement between the instrument and cartridge
  • Multiple pressure and vacuum interfaces to the instrument
  • Ultrasonically welded assembly for microfluidic channel sealing
  • Hermetically sealed internal filter media
  • Geared mechanism deploys a 100 mm tube for collection of sample from the bottom of the sample container
  • Developed unique method to reduce velocity of cartridge output while maintaining pressure requirements
