In MZP we focus on microtechnology and embedded systems to manipulate and detect small samples of fluids using portable devices.
In our labs we move through all stages of product development from applied research, proof of concept to lab and field prototypes and we are currently establishing low and mid scale manufacture capacities.
THE MICROFLUIDIC CHIPS
For our first product, the microviscometer, we have acquired solid experience in microfluidic chips fabrication using glass-glass, glass-silicon and glass-polymer material combinations. Therefore we obtain different levels of optical transparency and hydrophobicity.
THE MICROFLUIDICS PLATFORM
A chip by itself is useless without a platform that can manipulate or sense the properties of the fluid. An embedded system commands the sensors installed on the platform, records and process the acquired data, and eventually provides remote access or synchronization with a database if a network connection is available.
Driven by a User Oriented Design, the chip handling and the fluid sample placement have been carefully optimized for a smooth and automatic use. In addition, a Graphical User Interface is available in several embedded systems platforms.
We are a technology startup based in the city of Bariloche, Argentina.
Founded by a team highly qualified in the areas of microfabrication, electronics, fluid dynamics and medicine.
Becoming a key provider of innovative solutions, based in micro and nano fabrication, that will help overcoming global challenges in life sciences
Our mission is to help improve clinical diagnosis, through medical devices based on micro and nano technologies,
