Digital PCR: Old Technology Brought to Life on a Novel Affordable Automated Platform

Paul Hung, Ph.D., started out as an electrical engineer, but halfway through his graduate studies at the University of California, Berkeley (UC Berkeley), he switched to bioengineering. “I was fascinated by how many unsolved problems and unlimited possibilities there were in biology and hoped that my engineering expertise could help,” Hung recalls. As a serial entrepreneur, and now the CEO of COMBiNATi, Hung saw “huge potential in field of genomics” and earned the 2018 SLAS Innovation Award for his presentation, “Microfluidic Siphoning Array: A Novel Scalable Digital PCR Integrated Platform.”
