Automation of Point-of-Care Devices

The demand for mobile analytical devices for fast and reliable testing in order to analyze patient samples directly in the medical office is increasing – and with it the need for new lab-on-a-chip solutions. To enable you to transform your new processing operations (assays) into market-ready lab-on-a-chip systems as quickly, easily, and cost-effectively as possible, we support you through collaborative engineering and with a modular system featuring a catalog of industry-standard components.

Customized, Ready-to-Install Solutions for Point-of-Care Devices

We work in close collaboration with you to develop your new lab-on-a-chip system, relying on an existing modular system composed of tried-and-tested components. Based on the requirements of the assay, we quickly design samples for the subsequent automation process. What is unique about our approach is that even in this early stage of development, we work with components that will later be used in your final product.

The Benefits of Collaborative Engineering

  • A reliable process thanks to jointly developed and tested solutions
  • Less planning required
  • Rapidly obtain your own sample designs
  • Progress from prototyping to mass production more quickly
  • Launch your product more quickly

The Benefits of Ready-to-Install Subsystems

  • Customized design
  • Compact and space-saving
  • Straightforward interfaces for easy integration
  • Documentation included
  • A single part number
  • Fast and reliable delivery in large quantities and according to industry standards

Miniaturized and Integrated Components and Basic Elements

Point-of-care devices require compact, space-saving, and reliable components:

  • Miniature cylinders deliver actuator technology in the smallest of spaces.
  • Miniature valves control many closely spaced channels.
  • Miniature sensors monitor the pressure.

Basic elements are small functional units that integrate two or more components and are tailored to criteria such as available space or required flow rate. The result is a valve block specifically designed for the layout of the microfluidic chip.

Compressed air generation in the device

Autonomous: integrated pressure and vacuum generation

Solutions for point-of-care devices require integrated autonomous pressure and vacuum generation. We offer a compact module with high operational reliability, suitable for integration into IVD devices:

  • Built-in compressor
  • Filtration
  • Reservoirs
  • Pressure sensors
