Founded in 2010, SlipChip Corporation's goal is to make challenging laboratory measurements easy to perform, affordable and accessible across a wide range of environmental settings.

SlipChip is developing sample to answer solutions that enable physicians and other health care providers to easily and economically get actionable information at the point-of-care in both domestic and global settings. SlipChip is a microfluidic technology that allows one to encode complex and massively parallel manipulations of fluids into a microfluidic device, and execute those manipulations without the use of complex equipment. Applications of SlipChip in quantitative measurements of nucleic acids and proteins, and cultivation and analysis of the microbiome have been published.
