The success of companies in
the pharmaceutical, biotechnology, chemical and agrochemical industries is
directly related to their ability to identify new chemical compounds and
quickly bring these products to market.  Up to 30% of the expense of new

discovery phases of chemical research. Hardware and software products that
optimize these phases will enable companies to maintain a cutting-edge
advantage over their competition. Developing new drugs can take up to 10 years
and can cost $500 million in the process. Anything that can be done to shorten
that process will accelerate time to sales for pharmaceutical clients and

Micronics,
Inc.
, based in Redmond, WA was formed in January 1996 to develop and
commercialize innovative diagnostic and analytical products utilizing the
unique characteristics of fluids flowing in microfluidic channels. These
microfluidic technologies, licensed from the University of Washington, were
originally developed using microfabrication techniques established within
the semiconductor manufacturing industry. Small microfluidic channels, on
the order of hundreds of microns in diameter, are now easily constructed on
silicon chips. Fluids flowing in these small channels have unique
characteristics which can be applied to chemical or cell analysis (see
Technologies section). These characteristics include ways to separate cells
and chemicals without centrifugation or filtration, and ways to
simultaneously measure sample and control chemicals for purposes of
instrument auto-calibration. The miniaturization of these processes assures
that minimal volumes of reagents will be consumed in these assays, minimal
volumes of sample will be required, and minimal volumes of waste will be
generated. All of these advantages are valued highly in both clinical and
process-control chemical analysis.
