Owens ships microfluidic processing system

June 12, 2002 — Owens Design Inc. said it has delivered a microfluidic-based system for use in DNA analysis, proteomics and other life science applications.

The company said it engineered the mechanical and microfluidic systems for the machine, which automates the coating of the walls of a 96-well pattern microfluidic card. At the heart of the system is an array of tips with valves used for depositing nanoliter drops onto the card products.

Other uses include RNA analysis, DNA sample preparation and pharmaceutical drug screening.
