About Microfluidics The microfluidic industry is a next generation of technology growing out of the micro-chip industry. Unlike the traditional flow of electrical current through a silicon chip, microfluidic technology involves circuits of tiny chambers, channels and pumps that direct the flow of liquids on a single micro-chip. About IQ Micro IQ Micro Inc. is an international licensing company that commercializes proprietary technology developed for use in the microfluidics industry. The company has acquired exclusive licensing rights to the technology developed and patented by the Norwegian company Osmotex. As part of its worldwide licensing agreement, Osmotex has secured an 85% ownership position in IQ Micro. The company is actively pursuing global licensing opportunities for the patented "invisible pump," a microfluidic technology with a wide range of consumer, medical and industrial applications. With its proprietary technology and highly experienced management, IQ Micro expects to become the leading global specialized supplier of low-voltage microfluidic technology.
