Microfluidic Laminates

Resonetics is a market leader in microfluidic laminate manufacturing used to make point-of-care diagnostics and lab-on-a-chip devices. Our combined expertise in mechanical die cutting, roll-to-roll laser processing, automated stacking, lamination, and reagent handling allows us to help you quickly develop and launch new microfluidic products. We use proprietary and custom-built equipment that is highly automated and enables us to quickly scale to high-volume production. Our experienced engineers will collaborate with you to ensure the manufactured product will meet the critical requirements of your application and be economically scalable. Our processing capabilities are highly repeatable and hold a standard tolerance of +/- 0.002 of an inch.

The Advantages of Microfluidic Laminate Processing

Our microfluidic laminate process is fast, flexible, and can quickly scale into high-volume production, saving years in the time it takes to commercialize your device. Here are some of the benefits over conventional microfluidic manufacturing:

  • Simple design iterations
  • Speed to production launch
  • Significantly lower tooling cost
  • Rapid design changes
  • Higher tolerance control and repeatability

Common Applications for Microfluidic and Lab-on-a-Chip Devices:

In Vitro Diagnostics, microfluidic and Lab-On-a-Chip products are commonly used for Point-of-Care (POC) Diagnostics. The advancement of microfluidic technology has helped POC testing devices become faster, more portable, and more economical to manufacture. This has become important as medicine and healthcare need accurate, portable diagnostics to move towards personalized healthcare and early diagnosis of diseases. Here are some of the applications for microfluidics devices and Lab-on-a-Chip products:

  • Immunoassays
  • Clinical Chemistry
  • Molecular Diagnostics
  • Whole Blood Monitoring
  • Infectious Disease Detection
  • Electrolyte and Enzyme Analysis
  • Glucose Monitoring
  • Human Diagnostics
  • Protein Separation
  • Chemical Synthesis

Automated Layering & Stacking

We manufacture microfluidic laminates by carefully aligning layers of thin films and adhesives with different features and then robotically stacking and bonding them together. The buildup of these layers creates sub-assemblies or the complete microfluidic device. We have proprietary automation equipment to perform precision layering and stacking at high volumes while maintaining tight tolerance control between the layers and repeatability between each assembled device.

Reagent & Chemistry Handling

Our automated reagent placement and coating machines apply chemistries to microfluidic devices with precision at high volumes.

Roll-to-Roll Laser Cutting

Our proprietary roll-to-roll laser systems cut microchannels in films, foils, adhesives, and tapes with speed and precision.

Rotary and Flatbed Die Cutting

We use rotary and flatbed die cutting to press and mechanically cut features into pressure-sensitive materials. These capabilities create the multiple layers used to build up microfluidic devices or other components.
