SpinX: Laser-fast HTS

Although applications like high throughput screening have proven scalable, they are still resource intensive. SpinX Technologies S.A. is developing miniaturized automated programmable microfluidics instrumentation that it says will allow more to be done in less time and with nanoliter quantities of reagents, instead of the typical microliter quantities. SpinX says its technology can be applied to everything from drug discovery assays to diagnostic testing.

"Today, the problem is not the money, but that people have a bottleneck when going through high throughput screening into lead generation and medicinal chemistry," said Bart Van de Vyver, co-founder and CEO. "The idea of our platform is to loosen that bottleneck by allowing the same number of people to get an order of magnitude more data in the same time."

Van de Vyver and co-founder Piero Zucchelli, who is CSO, came up with...
