We’re using our key strengths in process development and technology in current MEMS applications spaces to facilitate new and emerging market applications in which we believe we can offer differentiated solutions.

BioMEMS, or biomedical microelectromechanical systems, has emerged as a subset of MEMS devices for applications in biomedical research and medical microdevices.
Traditional fabrication techniques previously imported from integrated circuit manufacturing to MEMS devices have undergone yet another transition for BioMEMS devices, with an increased awareness of microfluidic physics and the surface science of silicon, glass, polymers, and ceramics. Modification of surfaces for biomedical assays and biocompatibility has emerged as a complex science, with abundant opportunities for creating novel techniques and applications that can be patented and ultimately brought to market.
