SHARING OPTIONS:

LEXINGTON, Mass.RainDance Technologies Inc. and Sony DADC Austria AG have announced the results of a multi-year collaboration focused on the co-development and manufacturing of microdroplet-based "smart consumables" to be used within the life science markets. As part of the partnership, RainDance also announced the commercial release of its new HeatWave chip, a microdroplet-based consumable that was developed using the Sony DADC Optical Disc technology. The polymer-based HeatWave chip, which can perform high-throughput and high-precision microdroplet manipulations on-chip, is a product designed by RainDance for use on its RDT 1000 instrument. A single-use consumable, the chip builds on RainDance's polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) design and offers a simple, scalable workflow for life science research applications. Roopom Banerjee, president and CEO of RainDance, says the collaboration with Sony DADC "is another example of our commitment to working with best-in-class partners to deliver the most innovative, robust and cost-effective solutions to our global base of customers."
