Wanted: life science companies that want to try out biophotonics

Working in conjunction with 13 other European partners, imec and LioniX are building the world’s first pilot line to produce photonic circuits for bio-applications. This is all part of the PIX4life project to develop both a technology platform and supporting services for end-users. Right now, the consortium is looking for life science companies willing to test the pilot line to make their applications – such as cytometers and microscopes – more compact and less expensive.
