Partner profiles of organizations participating in the “Multisense Chip” project

microfluidic ChipShop GmbH focuses on the design, realization, and volume fabrication of lab-on-a-chip systems and is one of the international leading companies in that field. With its unique „Lab-on-a-Chip-Catalogue“ the company offers off-the-shelf microfluidic solutions, as well as intruments like a PCR, an electrophoresis and a sample preparation system.

The company also has extensive experience in the development of analytical systems for the detection of bacterial pathogens.

Special expertise exists in the manufacturing of microstructured devices in polymers, especially with replication methods, namely injection molding and back-end processing like dicing, metallization, surface modification and bonding.

Bertin Technologies and its subsidiaries namely SPI Bio and Ellipse pharmaceuticals form the Bertin Group that is considered as European leader in biotechnologies with a unique range of expertise and system development for equipments, corresponding kits and reagents in biodefence and biosecurity.

The background and experience of Bertin Technologies covers a wide diversity of industrial sectors of which defence and homeland security, healthcare and energy are the most significiant.

Bertin delivers a complete innovation offer, from technology services to delivery of high tech products: technical assistance, expertise and technology consulting, design and development, innovative products and systems. Our multidisciplinary team sponsors cross fertilization between life science and engineering: biology, microtechnology, mechanical design, fluid dynamics, ergonomics, scientific modelling, electronics, optics and signal processing.

The work of the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute focuses on farm animal health and welfare and on the protection of humans from zoonoses, i.e. infections which can be transmitted from animals to humans.

The Institute of Bacterial Infections and Zoonoses as a department of the Friedrich-Loeffler-Institute conducts research in the field of aetiology and control of infectious animal diseases. An important part of activities is directed towards diseases and pathogenic agents which originate from animals and, at the same time, constitute a direct or indirect health risk to man.

A biosafety level 3 laboratory exists with a staff highly experience as the National Reference Laboratories for Brucellosis, Glanders, Tularemia and Anthrax are all located in this institute. The strain collection in the institute includes all the relevant bacteria.

iMicroQ (Integrated Microsystems for Quality of Life S.L.) is a biotechnology company focused in continuous research and development of kits for the diagnostics market in general, in particular for food safety and clinical diagnostics.

The area of expertise of the company lays on microchannel fabrication using screen printed techniques as well as the development of the electrochemical interface that generates a measurable signal. Another important part of core operations is the development and optimization of separation techniques that ensure sufficient selectivity to the system. These separation techniques are based mainly in immunoseparation using paramagnetic particles. This technology is engineered to be of low cost, portable and easy to operate, including all reagents and steps needed within the kit.
