Micronit specializes in the development and microfabrication of MEMS, microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip devices, including point of care devices, which generates information about a patient’s health at the most useful time, and organ-on-a-chip products, which creates an alternative to animal testing, creates better predictive data models and reduces time-to-market and costs for drug discovery.
The company was founded in 1999 in Enschede, The Netherlands. It currently holds 65 employees; a Micronit operated cleanroom for prototyping and manufacturing, and is ISO 9001 and is ISO 13485 certified, becoming a “hot spot” for micro-and nanotechnology.
Micronit uses rapid prototyping and high-accuracy micromachining to create a high-volume manufacturing environment. They research using microfluidic kits to get started, along with off-the-shelf standard microfluidic chip modules, custom prototyping and low-volume manufacturing. The creative development of their products includes co-engineering, hybrid integration and microfluidics know-how.
