Different types of microfluidic chips designed for electroporation, which is a technique used to introduce DNA, RNA, or other molecules into cells using electric pulses. Microfluidic chips with inlets and outlets can provide controlled and efficient electroporation processes. Here are a few different flow electroporation chip designs with inlet and outlet ports:

Mit der Quantentechnologie werden sich vielfältige neue Anwendungspotentiale erschließen lassen.

Zum Beispiel können mit Quantensensoren verschiedenste Arten physikalischer Parameter mit bislang unerreichbarer Genauigkeit bestimmt werden.

microTEC lädt sie dazu ein, Ihre Ideen zur Industrialisierung der Quantentechnologien mit uns zu diskutieren und Miniaturisierungslösungen zur Systemintegration basierend auf unseren RMPD/3D-CSP-Verfahren zu entwickeln.

Als Partner mit langjähriger Erfahrung im Bereich geförderter BMBF- und EU-Projekten sehen wir einer Teilnahme an Quantentechnologie-Projekten mit Spannung entgegen.

The RAIS workshop was held at the Casa Convalescència UAB Campus (map), Barcelona, Spain on 6th – 7thNovember 2017.

The aims of the Workshop were to:

  • Demonstrate and showcase the technologies developed in the RAIS project for photonic measurement of sepsis biomarkers


  • Interact with the user community and gather expert opinion in order to fine-tune the alignment of project aims and market needs


  • Interest potential partners (companies, research institutes) in the possibility of collaboration for commercial exploitation of the RAIS system

Euronews coverage „Monitoring sea pollution“ about the EC Project BRAAVOO

microTEC is partner of the BRAAVOO Project which aims to develop innovative solutions for real-time in-situ measurement of high impact and difficult to measure marine pollutants. The concept of BRAAVOO is based on a unique combination of three types of biosensors, which will enable the detection of both a number of specific marine priority pollutants and also general biological effects that can be used for early warning.

New EC Projects

microTEC is participating in two new health oriented EC research projects.

Self-amplified photonic biosensing platform for microRNA-based early diagnosis of diseases (SAPHELY)

The SAPHELY project aims at developing a compact and low-cost point-of-care (POC) device based on nanophotonic technology for its application to minimally-invasive early diagnosis, with initial focus in cancer. This POC device will significantly help to reduce the actual costs designated for early diagnosis and to implement mass screenng programs, meaning a significant contribution to the improvement of the citizens’ health status and to the sustainability of healthcare systems.

Scalable, point-of-care and label free microarray platform for rapid detection of Sepsis (RAIS)

Microarrays are a powerful set of technologies which are widely used for the detection of pathogenic micro-organisms, proteins and Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) sequencing, among others. Most commercial equipment rely on large readers (also called scanners) and labelled detection, whereas most of the advanced research-level portable and label-free designs suffer from one of more drawbacks, including insufficient sensitivity and specificity, high cost and sophisticated implementation and reduced scalability (number of spots). The overall objective of this project is to develop a new point-of-care label-free microarray platform based on a proprietary interferometric lens-less microscopy design and validate it for quantifying levels of specific Sepsis’ biomarkers within 30 minutes.
