Our Team

The team at FloDesign Sonics is pioneering a revolutionary approach to particle manipulation in a fluid flow, using acoustic technology to generate multi-dimensional standing waves, waves that make it possible to capture, filter, separate, and concentrate particles in fluid – all without traditional techniques.
