Paul Hung is the 2018 SLAS Innovation Award winner for his work presented at SLAS2018, Microfluidic Siphoning Array (MSA) – A Novel Scalable Digital PCR Integrated Platform. Hung is CEO at COMBiNATi. In his SLAS2018 presentation, Hung discussed how his company has developed the patented Microfluidic Siphoning Array (MSA) Technology where bulk qPCR reagents can be partitioned into “lollipops,” a novel injection molded microfluidic device coupled with a semi-permeable thin film. The advantages enabled by this platform include lowering both the workflow and cost barriers of digital PCR without compromising the performance in precision, and sensitivity. The real-time imaging capability allows background subtraction to minimize false positives, as well as digital melt analysis to improve multiplexity. Hung envisions a scalable and automatable digital PCR platform which can easily be integrated to research laboratories, and extend to the clinic.

Hung received a $10,000 cash prize. Just as important, Hung is added to the elite collection of previous winners of this prestigious award. Watch the SLAS Electronic Laboratory Neighborhood e-zine later this year for a closer look at Hung and his career path and achievements.
From the hundreds of new technologies showcased in the SLAS2018 Exhibition, a panel of judges deemed these three to be the most outstanding based on market opportunity, impact, originality and proof of concept. Congratulations to:
