One Architecture,
                      Multiple Platforms

We build our platforms harnessing advances in microfluidics and AI

TechBio is an emerging paradigm that combines different engineering solutions to drive data-driven discovery. Using this paradigm, we created a universal layered architecture that enables multiple-AI-assisted microfluidic platforms. 

 

Each platform incorporates patented microfluidic chips designed to fit market-specific needs. Technology layers, including machine vision, deep neural networks, edge computing, and cloud databases, are seamlessly woven to create fluidic discovery engines.

How We Do It

Infinite Possibilities

How We Do It

We use the planet’s best studied organism to deliver human-relevant biological data

We know more about the biology of the worm C. elegans than any animal on the planet. C. elegans biology is highly conserved with humans, providing a translatable framework for predicting the effects of new ingredients on human metabolism and physiology. This invertebrate approach helps us to move towards cruelty-free products.

Biology
C. elegans Size.png

C. elegans is only 1 millimeter in length and weighs about 10,000,000 times less than a mouse. This small size enables microfluidic manipulation of worms resulting in enormous savings in energy and water usage.

C. elegans Consumption.png

A single worm consumes 300,000x less biomass per day than a mouse. Our studies typically use about 1 mg of sample per day making precious samples go a long way.

C. elegans Lifespan.png

C. elegans has a 3-week lifespan, 35x shorter than a mouse. This difference in lifespan dramatically reduces the timeline and cost of whole-life studies.

C. elegans Data.png

Data

C. elegans has about 10x the progeny of a mouse. Thus studies with large sample sizes can be designed to generate statistically reliable safety and efficacy data.

NemaLife Microfluidic Infinity Chip

Our patented microfluidic technology enables scalable worm husbandry and efficient ingredient delivery

Our innovative engineering and creative designs deliver microfluidic devices with novel functionality. 

We maintain worms across life in microfluidic chambers automating animal husbandry. This eliminates the intensive labor associated with long-term studies.

Our platform can test hundreds of ingredients in parallel in microfluidic chambers with ultra-low volumes of reagents.

Micropillars enable natural crawling behavior

Sieve channels allow progeny removal

Efficient ingredient delivery due to liquid environment

Our AI analyzes videos at scale, digitizing the worm’s response to ingredients

Our platform uses machine vision to capture the effect of ingredients on worm biology.

 

Deep neural networks and edge computing enable real-time analysis of videos to extract data at scale.

 

Based on the study design, the AI can quantify a range of different metrics, such as survival rates, locomotory activity for whole-life studies, or motivational states for behavioral assays
