  • Medical grade film for diagnostic applications

    Medical grade film is used in a range of diagnostic consumables and devices. They are available in a double or single sided construction with an acrylic or silicone medical grade adhesive, hydrophilic or heat seal coating. 

    Utilising our range of converting capabilities, we can customise these materials into intricate die-cut pieces, sheets or roll form. We can also advise on presentations and assembly solutions.

    Medical grade film applications:

    • PCR and Q-PCR assay seals
    • Microplate seals
    • Lid assemblies
    • Well sealing
    • Microfluidic device channel sealing
    • Microfluidic device top tape
