MilliDrop, a Paris based company, develops a new generation of Life Science automation solutions.
Thousands of µl size reactors are automatically created, incubated and analyzed inside a compact benchtop instrument. Sample and reagent consumption are reduced. Temperature-controlled incubations of thousands of samples in parallel do not require large devices. Each micro reactor is periodically monitored by optical devices integrated in the instrument and can be selectively collected for downstream applications. The instrument be integrated in a complete automation solution for larger workflows.
Initially developed for microbiology applications, the technology can be used in many other fields like molecular biology, cellular screening or protein characterization.
