innovation for industry

We focused on two disruptive technologies: a microfluidic cartridge and a new, lens-free imaging device (LensFree), which will enable development of more compact, easier-to-use POCT-type devices," says Damien Isebe, who heads up this highly innovative project at HORIBA Medical. "Twelve families of patents have been filed since the start of the project, and the latest one has been the subject of several scientific papers.
Flow cytometry is the main analytical technology in hematology, but it requires large and complex hardware systems. Conversely, lens-free imaging combined with a sample prepared as a microfluidic cartridge paves the way to a simple and compact disruptive architecture. This imaging technique provides a wide field of view (≈30mm²) resulting in a counting statistic (> 10,000 cells) in one single acquisition consistent with required hematological performance," explains Sophie Morales, laboratory head at CEA-Leti.
