Trinean (located in Belgium) is a privately-owned company that was founded as a spin-off from the University of Ghent and IMEC in September 2006. The founders of Trinean are three optical engineers with degrees in electrical engineering from the University of Ghent in Belgium. Driven by a strong spirit of entrepreneurship and an innovative attitude, the founders recognized that the move towards small-scale methods in the life sciences demands the development of versatile instruments able to rapidly analyze very small samples. This lead to pioneer a new approach for measuring microliter samples based on the founder’s expertise in both spectrometry and microfluidics. Trinean has been supported by substantial research and development grants from the Flemish government.
