Idea Name: Autonomous Micromanipulator
Slogan: Automatic Precision Micro-stage for Micro-Robotics
Startup Domain: Process Improvement
Abstract:
    The development of an autonomous micro manipulation system provides high manipulation rates with optimal reproducibility and makes quantitative micro manipulation possible.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Considering the importance of research in the almost every field specially biology, there is need to have an in depth knowledge of substances i.e. cells. So we need an autonomous system to track a required/specific cells and then we can do further processing that can be drug introduction etc.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Micro manipulators can be used in different industrial applications such as micro manipulations of objects, micro wires and living cells for targeted drug delivery. So these stages can be used by cell biologist, bio technologist, drugs developers and precision instrumentation etc.
How will the solution works
    The micro-stage we are designing would be autonomous in two axes by using image processing through visual feedback.The high speed camera will provide the visual feedback to the system for automatic tracking of micro objects by using image processing techniques. The optical lens is mounted on a motorized stage for automatic object tracking.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Globally there has been a lot of work on design and development on micro stages with different accuracy levels. But currently in Pakistan to the best of our knowledge there is no local manufacturer of precision micro-stages so our only competitors are global manufacturers.
