Digi.Bio’s Desktop Biofoundry employs about the magic of digital microfluidics to automate manual and repetitive workflows. Dilute, heat, cool, purify, in series, in parallel: all-in-one device. No pumps, no complex chip designs.
MERGE, MIX & SPLIT
Droplets can be dispensed, merged, mixed and split to replicate complex research protocols reducing your time at the bench.
Built-in optical sensors allows for real-time monitoring using camera or fluorescence detection.
Extract DNA, RNA, proteins or other biomolecules using off the shelf magnetic beads to integrate purification in your protocol.
The user controls the platform using a cloud-based software. Data from experiments is uploaded automatically and can be accessed anywhere, anytime.
Apply to our Early Access Program (EAP) and get access to a Digi.Bio Desktop Biofoundry. Digi.Bio’s EAP is a 6 month paid program which starts with an initial 1 month free trial. As a participant, you can use our device for a month and explore all the different ways it can help bring automation to your workflow. At the end of the month, you can either continue on for another 5 months by paying the Early Access Program Fee or return the device. All participants will receive a starter pack which contains :
Heating Module (25° C – 80° C)
Magnetic Module for protein and nucleic acid extraction
General Purpose – Reprogrammable chip design applicable for several protocols
Microscale reactions (1 uL)
Point and click user interface
Remote monitoring and protocol design
Cloud Control Hub
2 hours per week
