Embedded package microstructures part of awarding

winning MRCyte project


Sencio had a little more reason to enjoy this year’s Sensor & Test exhibition. As usual at the start of the event was the AMA innovation award announcements. This year Sencio together with Siemens Healthcare, Sensitec and M2 automation were joint recipients of the 2016 innovation award for the Magnetic Flow Cytometry (MRCyte) blood diagnostics application. The team shared the award with developers working on Nerves of Glass project. 

The MRCyte project was started at the end of 2013, and since then Sencio has succeeded in delivering around 1500 assembled devices, to be integrated into cartridges for the clinical test. By embedding microstructures aligned to the exposed magnetic sensor allows the marked blood cells to be guided in sequence over the sensor and counted. This means analysis can be done on blood directly drawn from a patient, without pre-analytical preparation.

And congratulations to everyone involved in helping make this project such a success.
