Silicon Biosystems developed lab-on-a-chip technologies for miniaturized cell-biology testing.
Its products include SmartSlide, a disposable Lab-on-a-chip, which works on liquid samples for various tasks, such as enrichment, label-free separation, mating of cells, and/or microbeads; and DEPArray, a cell microarray implementing a technology for individual cell manipulation and detection. The company technology is used for cell sorting and cell-cell interaction applications.
Atlante Ventures invested in 2010. Following a successful product development, Silicon Biosystems was acquired by Menarini Group in 2013.
