How it works

NeoPlate™ technology is disrupting a microfluidics product category that hasn’t evolved in over 50 years, and revolutionizing drug discovery technology for the high throughput screening process.

Hydrodynamic and Surface Energy-Based Trapping

The secret of reproducible nanoliter pipetting is based on hydrodynamic and surface energy-based trapping.

Every NeoPlate well consists of an upper and lower channel, each having a different resistance.
This resistance ratio and surface tension allow the wells to trap the fluid.
A unique air control valve prevents the fluid from escaping the wells and allows manipulation of the fluid in the trap.

SYSTEM MODULARITY AND FLEXIBILITY

The NeoPKPD platform best highlights the versatility of our trapping technology.

Our proprietary trapping technology is combined with established microfluidic motifs to create complex, yet easy to use systems.


HIGHLY EFFICIENT MIXING USING LOW SHEAR, LOW COMPLEXITY MICROFLUIDICS


Using our trapping architecture we can ensure rapid and complete mixing for a wide range of applications including manufacturing of nanoparticles for controlled delivery of actives/drugs.
