By characterizing molecular and cellular mechanisms of disease, Fluxion’s platforms help bridge the translational medicine gap, enabling rapid advances in disease research, drug discovery, and the development of diagnostic tests.

Microbiology Applications

Antimicrobial Screening, Biofilm Formation, & Host-Pathogen Interactions

Bacteria and fungi organized into biofilms are highly refractory to known antibiotics and biocides. To develop new solutions to combat biofilms, screening technologies must be designed to grow biofilms under conditions that represent an in vivo or in situ community while maintaining the ability to add and observe the effects of compounds.

BioFlux offers a comprehensive solution for running both fundamental biology assays as well as anti-microbial compound screens.
