The technology behind the simple design-

GattaCo has developed a new technology, which we call Cap-ResetTM for Capillary Pressure Re-Set, that automatically eliminates the breakthrough pressure requirement of filtration membranes.

This allows the plasma to be rapidy separated, collected and metered to a precise volume all using passive capillary forces only.

There are no moving parts and no operation or step is required of the user other than to add blood and dispense plasma.

The gray circular bulb seen in the photo above is for dispensing the plasma only, and is not involved in the separation or collection process.

Also Introducing....the Pipa™-Q

(Pipa for Passive Plasma Panel, Q for quad or 4 channels/wells)

Similar to the Sípon, but instead of collecting plasma for dispensing, the plasma is automatically delivered to downstream analysis chambers.

The Pipa represents a simple design where GattaCo's Cap-Reset plasma separation technology can be integrated into a more complex assay platform

to simplify the sample preparation steps needed for the analysis/detection of plasma-based biomarkers.

The Pipa-Q will be available as a demonstration tool in 4Q18, but you can Contact Us now if you would like to discuss

how Cap-Reset technology can be used to simplify your assay design.
