As a Lab-on-a-chip solution provider we offer a wide variety of services to assemble microfluidic and MEMS components into a customised Point-of-Care, diagnostic or medical device. Assembly is executed in our cleanroom facilities using ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 standards. Quality and traceability of all assembled components are secured in our quality management system. Identification (e.g. barcoding), packaging and labelling of assembled products can be done according to customer needs.
Besides customised assembly tooling, we apply several common industrial technologies such as:
With these available technologies we can assemble various materials such as thermoplastic polymers, elastomers, resins, glass, silicon, metals or any combination of these (e.g. hybrids).
We are collaborating with several industrial partners that are specialised in the design and manufacturing of (semi-) automated assembly equipment. This enables flexible and efficient scaling from low volume prototyping to medium and high volume production.
Micronit specialises in more than microfluidic chips only, looking at interfacing with the equipment and hardware around the microfluidic devices. Fluidic connections and connectors located between the microfluidic device and a fluidic tube or capillary are of high importance. Next to fluidic connections many types of electrical connections are often required. It can be direct sensor integration or interfacing between a sensor PCB and electrode contact on the microfluidic device.
Micronit aims at providing more standardised interfacing solutions to the microfluidics world. Fluidic connections should be compatible with different suppliers of microfluidic devices. Connections should also comply with interfacing of e.g. pumps, sensors and valves. In many cases adapting to standards like microscope slides and SBS microtiterplate formats are possible. For other device sizes or formats Micronit provides standard interfacing solutions off-the-shelf. Connection types can be selected based on operating conditions such as pressure, temperature, reusability.
We can realise a range of interfacing types:
