Pleiades Lab

The Pleiades - Prototyping Lab for Evaluation and Integration of Analytical Devices with Embedded Sensors is devoted to the design, fabrication and test of microfluidic lab-on-chip systems with integrated thin-film electronic components for biological and biochemical research in space. Target applications include astronauts’ health monitoring devices and instruments for the search for extinct or extant life traces in the solar system.

The lab is a fully equipped clean room supporting all the activities that go from the preparation of the experiments to the implementation of bioanalytical protocols in a controlled environment for the assessment of the performances of the micro-analytical devices and of the dedicated control and readout electronics
