Nanobiotechnology Center (NBTC) to commercialize a suite of tools dealing with fluidics at the nanoscale. ... NFI’s vision of single-molecule analysis will propel the bioassay industry into a new regime. Contemporary fluidics companies such as Caliper™ and Aclara™ have employed fluidics at the microscale to reduce consumption of costly reagents and decrease the size of components. NFI, in contrast, is exploring critical dimensions more than 1,000 times smaller than these forerunners in order to exploit fundamentally new behaviors of biomolecules that emerge only in nanoscale structures. The new behaviors can lead to previously unexpected abilities, some having price and performance parameters 100 times better than established products.
