SuFIDA Innovation Lab
The SuFIDA Innovation Lab at Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH, located in Jülich (NRW), develops digital assays for low-abundance targets with highly specific single-molecule sensitivity. This allows better detection of diseases that are difficult to diagnose, thus enables more accurate diagnosis.
For this purpose, the Innovation Lab is developing standardized digital assays using SuFIDA technology. It has pipetting robots and automated "high-end" microscopes from Leica, Zeiss and Cytiva.
In cooperation with partners from academia and industry, ideas are implemented in joint development projects. Furthermore, assay developments for, among others, medically highly relevant biomarkers and analytes are carried out upon customer request. The Innovation Lab covers almost the entire innovation process from exploratory development to validation.
The competencies of the Innovation Lab include assay development, digital assay technology, microscopy, fluorescence microscopy and data analysis.
