HandyLab develops and manufactures small, low-cost nucleic acid and protein-based analysis systems for clinical diagnostic markets. The patented, self-contained microfluidic systems are capable of integrating and automating multiple laboratory processes on a single chip.
The company focuses on applications requiring a high degree of sensitivity, specificity and speed in testing capabilities. HandyLab's microfluidic systems use only nanoliters of reagents, making it a cost-effective alternative to traditional laboratory testing. In addition, the disposable cartridges can be manufactured inexpensively and used to perform a wide variety of bio-assays. Designed to automate complex sample preparation and for point-of-service use, minimally-skilled personnel can perform tests and analysis on raw clinical specimens in approximately 30 minutes.
