  1. 1.  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
  2. 2.  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.
  3. 3.  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
  4. 4. 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
  5. 5. Ultrasonic welding, UV Bonding, HeatFully equipped engineering Lab sealing – all in house. Inspection and ImagingCustom Test Method Development
  6. 6.  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.
  7. 7. 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.
  8. 8.  Developed test method to visualize and characterize flow uniformity. Developed fixture to evaluate various configurations and pressures and evaluate impact on flow.
  9. 9. 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.
  10. 10. 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.
