Welcome to Life on a Chip!

We at Life on a Chip (say: “Life-Chip”) want to get you started using microfluidics.

Good news: We have opened our new labs in The Netherlands: Since end of October 2022:

Blauwborgje 31, 9747 AW Groningen, The Netherlands

Microfluidics is the science of handling fluids (=gasses and liquids) in microscopic environments with extreme degrees of control. This control allows you to get results faster with smaller samples.
Microfluidics can be used throughout Chemistry, Biology, Life Sciences and Biotechnology.

Processes and projects that already have profited from microfluidics include

  • Diagnostics (e.g. Malaria, pregnancy, cancer,…)
  • Blood separation & analysis
  • Drug assays
  • Drug discovery
  • Cell separation / enrichment
  • Single cell analysis
  • Chemical synthesis
  • Water analysis
  • Targeted mutation
  • Polyomics (proteomics, metabolomics, transcriptomics,…)

For some of these it was necessary to not only handle fluids with a high degree of control, but also to grow cells, tissues, and even several interconnected organ(oid)s on a chip.

In a nutshell, that all is our expertise. And we offer it to support you in your projects.

But why?

Because you often do not need a full time employee, but just the expertise for this project. Limited in time – limited in cost!
