Dr. Claus Fütterer

started the first microfluidic lab at the Institut Curie in Paris in 2001 and pioneered as inventor and developer the pneumatic pressure flow control method (patent WO2004/103566 and respective publication on the principle).

With this technology he cofounded Fluigent S.A. in 2006 and then Biophysical Tools in 2014 with a strongly improved approach for the Precision Pressure Controller System P2CS.

He also initiated the field biophysics of tissues studying the mechanical dynamics of regenerating tissues and patented new systems in this area. He is author of over 20 patents.

He  speaks German, English and French fluently.
