Activity description
The 3 top equipments available

 

By subcontracting MESA+/NanoLab  for the use of facilities and consultancy, LioniX can offer customers a broad expertise in the development of micro/nano tech based systems (‘facility sharing’). For more information see:

Know-how, expertise available

 

Key competences are (proprietary) integrated optics, microfluidics, optofluidics and related surface functionalization, giving an unparalleled position in the area of miniaturized (bio)chemical analysis and processing, i.e. Lab-on-a-Chip technology. Examples are:

·       Miniaturized devices for DNA/RNA pre-concentration for genetic analysis;

·       Biomarker detection based on Q-PCR, (optical) micro-array and Capillary Electrophoresis based platforms. Examples are in products of PLC Diagnostics: http://plcds.com/ and CapiliX (www.capilix.com). Next to this LioniX is investing in a label-free optical micro-array platform based on its proprietary planar waveguide technology TriPleXTM.

·       Integrated spectroscopy based on its proprietary optical planar waveguide platform TriPleXTM (VIS-NIR absorption, stimulated Raman).

Appealing product examples are equipment for:

·       (companion) diagnostics for cell and biomarker screening and characterization in body fluids and tissue;

·        (single) cell analysis and drug efficacy and toxicity testing in cells;

·       manipulation, characterization and selection for cell line optimization;

·      flexible and fast drug development and production with help of flow chemistry in microreactor processing systems.

Possibilities of partnership

 

LioniX is partnering with biotech companies and universities/institutes in various national and EU R&D programmes in order to develop hardware platforms for applications outside the HTS R&D laboratory and more dedicated to a certain (diagnostic) task. These projects will result in precursors for the development of high-added value equipment, to be further developed in collaboration with (venture capital) equipment companies.
