Active Pixels for Active Droplets

Our world is shaped by pixels.

Large area electronics have given us flat panel displays and flexible, wearable devices. ACXEL takes these ‘active’ pixels and puts them to work transporting liquid droplets – precisely and at amazing speed.

Millions of pixels are transformed into tiny engines moving samples around via a high throughput, low cost and programmable platform, offering a wide range of possibilities in chemistry, biology and medtech.

Why Active Pixels? Active Pixels for liquid transport:

  • Accurate and consistent drop control
  • Scalable to large, high speed processes
  • Low cost
  • Automated sample preparation
  • Easily integration into workflows

REDUCES Sample Sizes

ACXEL technology manipulates droplets at sub-microlitre scale, reducing the volume of samples needed for each reaction.


ACXEL’s programmable and automatic electrowetting system eliminates human error and fatigue – resulting in more reliable data, and minimizing the need for replicates.


ACXEL technology can manipulate hundreds or thousands of samples in parallel and accurately initiate reactions, dramatically reducing pipetting operations.


ACXEL technology minimizes direct contact between samples and researchers, reducing the risk of exposure to hazardous materials.
