Blister reservoirs in microfluidic diagnostic platforms
The GmDD team has recently developed several diagnostic platforms that use lateral flow and microfluidic cartridges for blood analysis.
For the microfluidic based devices, moving extremely precise quantities of liquid within the cartridge is crucial in obtaining consistent and accurate readings. The exact quantity of fluid must also be stored safely to avoid contamination. Burst and frangible seal reagent blisters is an ideal method of delivering this and is something we have tested recently in our developed prototypes.
One such company that produces blisters is J-Pac Medical and some detailed information about the technology and benefits can be found by clicking on the following link:
If you are looking to develop a diagnostic platform and are looking for a team to assist in its development, then please contact Director Graeme Maisey for an informal discussion.
