Our Technology

miDiagnostics wants to offer a unique and disruptive technology supporting lab quality diagnostic access for everyone, everywhere and at anytime

nanoFluidic Processor

At the heart of miDiagnostics’ technology is a nanoFluidic Processor (nFP), designed to allow for high-precision, fast test results and enabling widespread use at a low cost.

Production of this next-generation technology can be scaled up at speed, depending on the demand, due to the use of existing, standard silicon chip manufacturing processes.

The miniaturized processor on a silicon chip houses a network of microchannels, made with nanometer precision. These channels enable fluidic operations such as pumping, valving, mixing, and volume metering.

Various diagnostic tests can be performed on fluids which are guided through the system by capillary forces and can redirect liquids, even reversing their direction. In addition to high precision liquid control, the silicon chip enables ultra-fast PCR, allowing virtually any biomarker to be processed: from cells and small molecules to proteins and nucleic acids.

It was initially developed by imec, the world-leading R&D and innovation hub, with the expertise of Johns Hopkins University, the leading US research and medical centre.

How it Works
