Startup FluxErgy Developing Portable Microfluidic Diagnostics System | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Irvine, California-based startup FluxErgy is developing a portable microfluidic diagnostics system that it hopes will ultimately be used in physician offices as well as in low-resource settings around the world.

Originally developed with HIV viral load testing in mind, the system is capable of conducting 20-minute real-time PCR tests from a finger prick of blood.
