Micro2Gen is a medical instrumentation company focusing on molecular diagnostics applications and microfluidics technologies. The company has an interdisciplinary character addressing several scientific areas, i.e.
Microsystems – Microfluidics
Information technology and Biomedical Informatics
Biotechnology / Biochemistry
Micro2gen has already designed and produced integrated instruments, and in collaboration with international partners has verified them and applied them in different areas.
micro2gen has innovated in different aspects of instrument control, designing and developing a range of highly efficient, but low-cost alternatives to current approaches, such as:
A machine-vision solution for the control and analysis of fluidic motion at different scales
A low-cost, high-accuracy multi-channel potentiostat for the readout of electrochemical biosensors
A complete graphical environment for the easy description, execution and monitoring of biological assays on different instrumentation platforms
HL-7 connectivity for various instrumentation solutions
The company has a very strong research character and has partially funded its developments through European and National Research Funding Projects (FP7, NSRF).
