◆ About Us


Elements s.r.l. is a start-up company in the microelectronics field established in December 2013 producing high accuracy miniaturized measurement instrumentation for nanosensors analysis, especially electrophysiology.
In two years of activities Elements products have been distributed at a global level in countries such as USA, China and most of the European countries. Moreover, Elements collaborates with research centers and European leading companies in the electrophysiology field, contributing to the innovation of the measurement systems available in the market.


Elements technology is based on the microelectronic design of custom microchip (ASIC) using standard and low-cost CMOS process. Several years of experience in the microelectronic design applied to biosensing devices give to Elements team a unique and exclusive advantage in very low amplitude signal readout.

Elements microchips can measure currents in the picoAmpere (10-12 A) range with bandwidths up to hundreds of kHz thanks to the deep knowledge reached by Elements in single- and multi-channel signal acquisition of very low amplitude signals, low power management techniques, analog-to-digital conversion and digital data elaboration.


The team skills come from several years of university research in microelectronic design and system miniaturization. The team is composed of six people with experience in complementary fields, such as:
- microelectronics design
- digital signal processing
- system design
- software development
- bio-nanosensor technology
- financial administration
- biophysics
