Founders Dr. Nader Najafi, Dr. Ken Wise, and Dr. Khalil Najafi established
ISSYS in January 1995 to design, develop, manufacture and commercialize innovative
products based on high performance microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
Originally created as a way to transfer and commercialize MEMS technology
from the leading edge work of its co-founders at The University of Michigan,
privately-held ISSYS has focused on developing its core technology, the
Dissolved Wafer Process (DWP), and the associated technologies required
for the production of MEMS-based products since its inception.
Initially ISSYS focused on developing its core sensing technology and
laying in a broad and deep base of intellectual property.
This work involved:
- Successfully completing multiple technical projects to create innovative
- Assembling an experienced technical and business team
- Establishing a comprehensive, state-of-the-art MEMS fabrication and
- Completing initial biocompatibility evaluations of ISSYS core
technology with promising results
- Developing products complete with required electronics and packaging
to deliver end-user solutions with breakthrough price-to-performance
results and completely new capabilities.
As its technology has matured, ISSYS has leveraged its investment by
pursuing products in four distinct areas in life and applied sciences.
ISSYS is now in the final stages of developing specific products for
market launch. It is preparing to finalize its initial product designs
and begin to generate product-based revenues in addition to its MEMS Foundry
Services revenues. For further information on ISSYS products and services,
