Microfluidics has been utilized in particular in biotechnological and medical fields as well as in areas of environmental analysis.The development of analytical instrumentation through miniaturization is now a major field of research within the applied sciences. CDA has modified its injection molding techniques and developed completely new processes to successfully accomplish mass production of various microfluidic elements. The structures are typically channels or pillars, which depth may range from 50 nm to 250 micrometers. Learn more ...
In his presentation, Dr. Nicolaus Hettler showed different ways of how to combine micro-fluidics and micro-optics to create customized products and solutions.
Point-of-care devices, digital micro-fluidics und optofluidics are some of the keywords his interesting speech was made up of. See the video, if you want to know more about cell containers and what the growth of cell cultures has to do with micro-optics and micro-fluidics.
The Medium-Sized Business Initiative of Huber Publishing House for New Media annually awards a prize to the best industrial solutions. In 2013, the Diagnosis Disc µPESI – a joint project with some of CDA's partners – has made it onto the much coveted list of top industries. See here
