SINTEF is the largest independent research institute in Scandinavia. The Department of Microsystems and Nanotechnology has performed numerous feasibility studies and designed various microdevices, including inertial sensors (accelerometers, gyroscopes), gas sensors (microacoustic, photoacoustic, microoptical), a variety of pressure sensors and microfluidic/biomedical elements (flow sensors, lab- on-chip systems, ultrasonic devices). The designed elements have been fabricated either by the SensoNor (Infineon Technologies SensoNor AS) MPW process or in-house using SINTEF's own clean room manufacturing line. SINTEF's MiNaLab was ISO 9001 certified in 2006
