Biosensors

Detecting more than 100,000 biomarkers in less than 5 minutes

Our expertise

Imec develops biosensing chips with up to 100 sensors per mm2 for fast and accurate detection of cells, DNA, small molecules, antibodies, gases, etc. This extreme miniaturization is made possible thanks to the use of powerful CMOS chip technology with on-chip electrical and photonic sensors and microfluidics.

Key benefits

  • Multiplexing,
  • Fast measurements of binding events with immediate sample-to-result readout,
  • Requires only small reagent volumes (< 1ml) thanks to integrated microfluidics and
  • Low-noise and online measurement of analytes
