MFSI Receives New Patents for Automated Sample Processing and Detection

Microfluidic Systems (MFSI) has declared that it has received four new patents for automated processing and detection of biological samples.

Among these new patents, the patent number 7,785,868 authorizes "Apparatus to Automatically Lyse A Sample”. This patent embraces a wide range of claims for MFSI’s protocols for power, temperature and time of ultrasonic energy-based sample lysis. The patent number 7,785,869 entitled "Sonication to Selectively Lyse Different Cell Types" explains about the equipment which helps to automate the differential extraction of specific cell types within a mixed sample. MFSI’s third new patent’s number is 7,633,606 and is entitled "Integrated Airborne Substance Collection and Detection System". The fourth new patent entitled "Automated Particle Collection Off of Fan Blades into a Liquid Buffer," has been granted but the patent number is yet to be assigned. The last two patents serve as the components of a wide range of integrated systems which are created to carry out automated assortment, diagnosis and processing of airborne pathogens, which is MFSI’s major area of expertise.

Dr. M. Allen Northrup, President and CEO of MFSI, has stated that their company is determined to create a robust intellectual property base for collecting, processing and detecting the biological samples. He added that they have built a huge repository of technology, proficiency and efficiencies as illustrated by their new patents.
