FemtoFluidics -- Transforming Chemical Lab Work into Electronic Hardware
We are an early-stage startup, developing fluid-handling technology that precisely manipulates small droplets on a circuit grid via electrical charge. Everything is choreographed by software that controls the switching of the voltages.
Our vision: we will replace a room full of expensive liquid-handling robotics with a rack of electronics.
- Our device will have very low operating costs and very high reliability, with no moving parts. It will be as dependable as computer hardware is.
- Chemical protocols will not only be fully automated, but will also be fully programmable and customizable. Changing the protocol will be as simple as re-coding the software.
- Our solution is scalable: moving to larger grid sizes, with more droplets and smaller volumes per droplet entails only electronic re-design.
We're off to a great start: see our prototypes belows.
