uFraction8 builds products around a disruptive new liquid particle processing technology. Following our world-leading research, establishing new levels of throughput for massively multiplexed microfluidic devices, our technology will be the key to unlock a prosperous and sustainable future. Our technology offers superior performance and costs savings against the big three liquid processing technologies of filtration, flow centrifugation, and flocculation. High volume applications benefit from our unique ability to granularly match targeted volumetric throughputs and our ability to scale this beyond the physical limitations of competing technologies.
