Visit our booth 621 at the 62th Biophysical Society Annual Meeting, from February 17 to 21, 2018 in San Francisco!
Elements srl is an innovative Italian SME established in December 2013 that design and produces electronic instrumentation for the pico- and nano-scale measurements in the electrochemistry field, ranging from electrophysiology on live cells to bio- and solid-state nanopore sensing.
Elements technology is based on custom ASICs (CMOS silicon microchip), designed by the company microelectronics engineers Team, that allows ultra-low noise current measurement starting from very low ranges (few hundreds of fA, 10-15Ampere).
Elements microchips allow to produce miniaturized devices, affordable, portable and easy-to-use, that enable nanotechnologies to be used in the new generation of portable medical diagnostic devices (Point-of-Care-Testing) and food safety controls. In this sense we claims Enabling Technology for Life science, our logo pay off.
Elements miniaturized amplifier can acquire and analyze very low ion currents and can be applied in the electrophysiology/electrochemistry field. Ion currents are electric signals flowing through ion channels (nanometric-sized pore-forming proteins on cells membrane). Ion channels are involved in many life processes of cells and are crucial in order to analyze drugs impact on human cells.
During the past years of activity, Elements products have been distributed at a global level in countries such as USA, Japan, People’s Republic of China and most of the European countries. Moreover, Elements collaborates with European leading companies in the electrophysiology field contributing to the innovation of the measurement systems in the automatic electrophysiology field.
