Elements srl Company Overview
Elements srl is an innovative Italian SME specialising in the manufacture of electronic instrumentation for pico- and nano-scale measurements in the electrochemistry field. Their expertise ranges from electrophysiology on live cells to bio- and solid-state nanopore sensing.
Elements srl has developed a proprietary ASIC design which delivers ultra-low noise current measurements, down to hundreds of fA (10-15 Ampere).
These custom microchips are deployed used to produce a range of miniaturized affordable, portable and easy-to-use instrumentation, that enable nanotechnologies to be used in the new generation of portable medical diagnostic devices (Point-of-Care-Testing) and food safety controls.

Elements’ miniaturized amplifier can acquire and analyze very low ion currents and can be applied in the electrophysiology/electrochemistry field. Ion currents are electric signals flowing through ion channels (nanometric-sized pore-forming proteins on cells membrane). Ion channels are involved in many life processes of cells and are crucial in order to analyze drugs impact on human cells.
During the past years of activity, Elements products have been distributed at a global level in countries such as USA, Japan, People’s Republic of China and most of the European countries. Moreover, Elements collaborates with European leading companies in the electrophysiology field contributing to the innovation of the measurement systems in the automatic electrophysiology field.
