Feasibility study for microfluidic separation device for biological fluids

Imego AB


Denator AB


The study requested is a preparation for a possible research and development project of a product that can perform fast separation and inactivation of biological fluids. Proteins, peptides and metabolites are rapidly degraded after extraction, which causes large problems for both academic and industrial protein research. In this study, Imego will investigate the feasibility of fabricating low-cost glass and polymer chips that combine microfluidic separation with Denator’s proprietary preservation technology.

Manufacturing of microparts with micro-turning and micro-drilling



IONTO-COMED Hungary Ltd.


The company searched BUTE, that it would like to produce microparts at the University. The problem was that we had to produce very small pieces. The biggest diameter of parts was 1.6 mm, and the length was 4 mm. We had to do two bores in the pieces. One of bores was 0.5 mm, and the other one was 0.7 mm. And we needed to keep the serious tolerance, for example concentricity.
The University was dealing with similar workpieces. The our tasks were the choice of tools, determination of technology and definition of proper manufacture parameters.
