Modular fluidic platform with Shape Memory Alloy miniature valves to disrupt medical technology industry (memetis)

Project description

New modular microfluidic platform could revolutionise disease diagnosis and treatment

Microfluidics, the precise control and manipulation of small amounts of fluids in the range of microlitres to picolitres, is playing an increasingly important role in medicine and chemistry. The EU-funded memetis project is designing modular fluidic platforms using miniature valves made from shape memory alloys. This development allows processes that are normally carried out in a lab to be performed at the point of care. The miniaturised fluidic chips enhance diagnostic efficiency and speed while reducing sample and reagent volumes. Lying at the intersection of engineering, physics, chemistry, information technology and biotechnology, memetis can revolutionise the way patients are diagnosed, monitored and treated.
