DCU device

The Fraunhofer Project Centre for Embedded BioAnalytical Systems at Dublin City University (FPC@DCU) is a joint initiative of Science Foundation Ireland and Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. The FPC@DCU was established through collaboration between the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft (Munich, Germany) specifically its Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology (Fraunhofer IPT, Aachen, Germany) and DCU. The FPC @DCU is a unique resource for industry that facilitates efficient design, development and production of microfluidic devices for decentralised bioanalytical sensing for a wide range of samples and applications.

The FPC@DCU designs, develops and manufactures novel integrated microfluidic devices for automated measuring of biosamples and provides industry partners, both Irish and international, with time- and cost-efficient applications development. Benefitting from its platform-based approach, the FPC@DCU can take inputs from basic research and rapidly develop them to elevated technology readiness levels (TRLs). Combined with the capability of scale-up from prototyping to production, the FPC@DCU is a compelling offer to industrial users who need technologies for decentralised bioanalytical testing and can enable them to address a broad range of existing as well as emerging market opportunities.

The Pierre-Gilles de Gennes Institute (IPGG)

 IPGG Building

The Pierre-Gilles de Gennes Institute (IPGG) is the main academic research centre in France solely dedicated to microfluidics. Based in the heart of Paris it includes 15 research teams selected among the best institutions, representing about 200 research staff. The institute has developed a strong philosophy of interdisciplinary research in order to foster breakthrough innovation. This has led to the creation of 16 start-ups in just a few years. The fields of study cover subjects ranging from physics to chemistry and biology with many applications in healthcare, pharmaceuticals, environment and energy.

 National Resarch Council of Canada

NRC microfluidic device

The National Research Council of Canada is the Government of Canada’s premier research organization at the federal level. Its Medical Devices Research Centre is home to experts in: biosensors/biochips, microfluidics, molecular labels and novel material architectures, medical photonics, radiofrequency (RF) coil and RF/microwave (MW) antennas and electronics, computer simulation and haptics technologies.  The Medical Devices Research Centre develops small, low cost innovative medical technologies that provide rapid, sensitive, accurate and low-cost solutions aimed at saving lives, reducing the health care burden and stimulating economic opportunities
