Research member Thomas Gervais, a full professor in the Department of Engineering Physics at Polytechnique Montreal, and his team have made a name for themselves with a liquid pixel projector to replace robotic pipettors.

Following the publication of a scientific paper on their “pixelated chemical display”, which acts as a sort of miniature liquid projector allowing up to 144 experiments to be performed simultaneously, the jury composed of scientists and science journalists selected their research as a Quebec Science Discovery of the Year 2021.

This invention has the potential to change the way biochemical or biological tests are performed.
