NSF Awards a Phase I SBIR to ISSYS - Integrated Sensing Systems for Investigating Two-Phase Microfluidic Behavior and Nanoliter Bubble Detection


7/17/2007 10:58:39 AM

YPSILANTI, MI--(MARKET WIRE)--Jul 17, 2007 -- Integrated Sensing Systems, Inc. (ISSYS) announced today that it has won a National Science Foundation (NSF) Phase I SBIR contract, titled "Microfluidic Gas/liquid Two-Phase Sensing and Compensation." This project develops a new sensing technology capable of quickly and accurately measuring nanoliter and microliter sized gas bubbles in a liquid stream using ISSYS patented MEMS technology. The basic microfluidic technology has already been employed to produce density, specific gravity and chemical concentration meters, which are sold by ISSYS as well as drug infusion monitoring systems. Dr. Douglas Sparks, Executive VP of ISSYS, stated that "Micro and nano-bubble detection is a major hurdle facing many emerging technologies. This research will not only develop new methods of measuring extremely small gas bubbles, but will also improve both the accuracy and reliability of many emerging products in a variety of fields including, microfluidics, assay, TAS, Biomedical, Bio-MEMS, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, genetic screening and testing, laboratory and industrial sensors such as Coriolis mass flow and liquid density measurements."
