Microchip Biotechnologies Secures IP Related to Microfluidic Devices

  • Microchip Biotechnologies (MBI) gained rights to commercialize a University of Alberta invention that can improve lab-on-a-chip devices and biosampling procedures.

    A team led by Jed Harrison, professor and chair in the department of chemistry, developed the technology to allow trapping of beads on-chip as well as packing and unpacking the trapping zones. These innovations significantly extend the applications of microfluidic analysis systems, according to Harrison.

    The exclusive patent license agreement was carried out through TEC Edmonton, the technology transfer office for the University.
