Micralyne and Polychromix partner for manufacturing

May 14, 2007 — Micralyne Inc., an independent MEMS fabrication company, has announced a partnership with Polychromix, developer of inspection and analysis tools, to manufacture MEMS near-infrared (NIR) devices for the Polychromix’s Phazir product line.

The Phazir is a handheld device that can perform qualitative and quantitative analysis of materials directly at their source, and Polychromix says it is the first of its kind in the industry. The Phazir combines Polychromix’s trademarked Digital Transform Spectroscopy (DTS), with MEMS technology to reduce large, stationary analytical laboratory instruments into one handheld, NIR analyzer.

The devices can be mass-produced, resulting in low-cost and extremely robust and reproducible products. In addition, the MEMS engine is an electrostatic device, minimizing power usage and maximizing battery life.
