Imec develops integrated sample-to-result chips to perform PCR-based tests. With silicon-based microfluidics, these enable fast, simple and sensitive detection of genetic markers (e.g. in blood).
- Full PCR analysis from whole-blood in less than 10 minutes,
- Extreme miniaturization and parallelism,
- Full workflow via on-chip integration of filters, mixers, lysis, extraction, enrichment, droplet handling and
- Sample-to-result in one chip
