Our range of medical grade films and foils include a selection of hydrophilic films, bioassay compatible tapes, spacer and top tapes. Learn about these in more detail below. Utilising our range of converting capabilities, we can customise these materials into intricate die-cut pieces, sheets or roll form.
Hydrophilic medical grade films
Hydrophilic films provide fast and reliable spreading of liquid samples through your diagnostic device. They are available in a range of thicknesses and shapes to suit your design criteria. Applications include patient self-testing kits, laboratory test kits and lab-on-a-chip constructions.
Hydrophilic film characteristics include:
Bioassay compatible tapes
Bioassay compatible tapes consist of select diagnostic acrylate adhesives and materials, including polyester, polyolefin and aluminium backings. They minimise the potential for chemical and/or optical interference, making them the ideal product for your microfluidic requirements.We offer a range of single or double sided bioassay compatible tapes, in white, silver or transparent. Applications include lab-on-a-chip constructions, test strip top tape and sealing of biological assays and microplates.
Bioassay tape characteristics:
Double sided spacers and top tapes
Double sided spacers and top tapes consist of select bioassay compatible adhesives and materials, including polyester, polyolefin and aluminium backings. They minimise the potential for chemical interference, as well as aid in the manufacture and use of your device, making them the ideal product for your microfluidic requirements. We offer a range of single or double sided spacers and top tapes, in white, silver or transparent. Applications include diagnostic spacers and lateral flow test strips.
