  •  Diagnostic Cartridges Diagnostics Sample Handling Devices Life Science Cartridges Microfluidic Devices Medical Devices Drug Delivery Systems Medical Diagnostics Angioplasty Ophthalmology Dental Products Respiratory Products Other High Volume Medical Products
  •  Diagnostic cartridges single test strip, multiple test strip and specialty housings. SLA prototypes to verify fluidic function. Fabricated prototype tooling for clinical studies, internal testing. Coordinated design transfer to manufacturing.
  •  Mechanical Product Design Industrial Design 3D Solid Modeling (Solidworks) Microfluidic Device Design Precision Prototype Machining Rapid Prototype Tooling and Molding LIM Silicone Molding Product Testing and Test Method Development. Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) Process Development Manufacturing Transition Product Reliability Assessment
  • Coming up with creative concepts tomeet your requirements.RapidlyIdentifying, prototyping, testing andverifying high risk functions.Replicating scalable manufacturingprocesses early in the developmentprocess.Seamlessly transferring the productto production.All of the above
  • Ultrasonic welding, UV Bonding, HeatFully equipped engineering Lab sealing – all in house. Inspection and ImagingCustom Test Method Development
  •  DCN Symbiosis Combination of Engineering (Device) and Science (Assay) Development for diagnostic products. Converting/Lamination We collaborate with companies such as Aline and others on microfluidic fabrication methods outside our internal capabilities. Instrument Developers Collaborated with instrument development houses including Qiagen (ESE), LRE and BIT Group (Source and CalMedtech). Separation of instrument and disposable results in optimized design solution. Contract Manufacturers: Strong partnership with a variety of contract manufacturers for high volume medical products such as HK Plastics. MF3: Technology Member.
  • Example Provided design and fabrication expertise to Dr. Elliot Hui for proof of concept. Revised design and fabricated oscillator chip and verified equivalent function vs. glass etched units. Analyzed design for molding and confirmed ability to produce parts with low cost injection molding.
  •  Developed test method to visualize and characterize flow uniformity. Developed fixture to evaluate various configurations and pressures and evaluate impact on flow.
  • Product  DXNA Molecular Diagnostic Cartridge.Challenges  Device leaked during operation.  Assembly process was expensive and unreliable.Process  Symbient Redesigned device to optimize fluidics and utilize ultrasonic welding process.  Integrated hydrophobic vent material.  Fabricated prototype tooling/Developed ultrasonic and laser welding methods in house.Result  Solved leakage problems.  Reduced manufacturing cost and improved reliability.  Transferred product to contract manufacturer.
  • Product  BD Veritor Cartridge and Sample Handling Device.Challenges  Develop a CLIA Waived Flu A/B test.Process  Worked closely with customer to develop precise cartridge with intuitive instrument interface.  Worked closely with customer to develop user friendly sample delivery system.  Worked closely with contract manufacturers to rapidly transfer tooling and assembly processes from development to high volume manufacturing.Result  Achieved CLIA waived status  Seamlessly transferred molding to contract manufacturer.
