Programmable Droplets

24 January 2018

Biologists in a lab spend, on average, 30-50% of their time manually moving fluids using disposable pipettes. Programmable Droplets are a low-cost lab-on-a-chip, designed to make testing cheaper, faster, and more portable for biological sampling. Using electric fields to move, merge, stir and analyze drops of biological samples, programmable droplets can eliminate contamination, human error and huge magnitudes of hazardous waste.
