Trinean, Sony Reach Supply, Manufacturing Deal for Microfluidic Disposables

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Microfluidic spectrophotometry company Trinean today announced a deal with Sony DADC to produce microfluidic disposables that can be used for storage and micro-cuvette analysis of droplet-sized biological samples.

As part of the manufacturing and supply agreement, Sony is using its ISO 13485 facility in Salzburg, Austria to manufacture to Trinean's specifications.

Financial and other terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Trinean's spectrophotometers include the DropSense96 reader for high-throughput and integrated QC sample analysis, and the Xpose benchtop spectrophotometer for high-speed quantification of DNA, RNA, or protein samples. Both instruments include proprietary Spectral Content Profiling software for dye-free quantitation of DNA, RNA, or protein yields, along with the detection of contaminating levels of residuals for content QC, Trinean said.

Spun out of Ghent University and Imec Leuven, Belgium-based Trinean last month signed on the Alliance Global Group to distribute its microfluidic spectrophotometers in the Middle East, Africa, and Asia regions.
