microfluidic chips

The European Commission awarded a consortium of private companies and academic researchers €759,000 recently to carry out their plans.

The researchers created a test-on-a-chip technology that takes about 35 minutes to produce a result, and may partner with Ford to produce the chips.

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) said that it would use Fluidigm's saliva-based molecular SARS-CoV-2 test as part of a federal surge testing program.

The team published data on Monday highlighting its microfluidic chip's ability to help predict the clinical outcomes of glioblastoma patients. 

The submission data highlights Parsortix's ability to harvest circulating tumor cells from metastatic breast cancer patient blood samples for downstream analysis. 

Fluidigm's Advanta Dx SARS-CoV-2 RT-PCR assay is an extraction-free saliva-based test to detect nucleic acid from the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The seven technologies feature different methods, including CRISPR and microfluidics, and can be performed in many settings and with a variety of sample types.

The platform can detect a single virus in more than 1,000 samples at a time or more than 160 viruses, including SARS-CoV-2, in a small number of samples.

The multiplex assay is designed to detect both the SARS-CoV-2 nucleocapsid protein from nasal swabs and patient-derived antibodies against the viral spike protein 1 from blood drops.

The financing will go toward development of miDiagnostics' nanofluidic process on a chip as it prepares it for industrial-scale manufacturing.
