Electrokinetic systems offer the opportunity to pump fluids and perform chemical separations without moving (mechanical) parts. LunaMicro develops and commercializes technology for electrokinetic devices in collaboration with companies and universities to enable breakthrough technologies. Here are a couple of examples.
Pumps for smart textiles
Our patented electroosmotic pump technology can take many forms, including flexible fabric that can be electronically addressed to pump fluid from one side of the textile to the other. Anywhere undesired moisture should be transported across a flexible barrier, our technology can help, be it furniture, clothing, housing or a myriad of other applications.
Lab-on-a-chip (microfluidic) pumps and separations
The future’s medical diagnostic technology depends on today’s technological breakthroughs. LunaMicro specializes is pumps and separation systems that simplify microfluidic devices, making them autonomous, inexpensive, and more reliable than traditional systems. Our technology also enables the use of extrusion processes, such as 3D printing (fabbing), enabling an entirely new revolution in fabrication of MEMS, lab-on-a-chip, and point-of-care diagnostic devices.
