About the technology

On-demand production of protein aggregates: We produce oligomers and fibrils within seconds in a nanofluidic environment. This has potential for high throughput screening of drug candidates, automated in-vitro assays, and binding assays with single molecule sensitivity.

Areas of application

We envisage producing the nanofluidic Tau-on- Chip devices for use in drug development, clinical trials, research, and protein production.

Value proposition

  • Single molecule sensitivity.
  • For use in drug development, clinical trials, research, and protein production.
  • Patent pending.
