a Challenging Design Liquid Biopsy Platform – A Challenging Design

We have completed a challenging project that started with a referral from a partner. The project was the design of a complex medical instrument and it required a combination of skills that we are known for: analog circuitry, FPGA, microprocessors, and firmware. The instrument is used for non-invasive liquid biopsies and requires the accurate measurement of a very low current in a sample of blood. These liquid biopsy devices can provide a simple and noninvasive method to diagnose cancer in the very early stages, which allows for more effective treatment and lower risk of mortality.
