The Point-of-Care Scale-Up kit contains biocompatible polymer, Flexdym, is a thermoplastic elastomer which serves as a great alternative to PDMS, combining its most desired material properties with the efficiency of fabrication processes used for thermoplastics.
The Scale-Up Kit includes everything you need to get started with Flexdym for point-of-care device fabrication: the Sublym hot embossing machine, 4 Flexdym start packs, the Epoxym mold solution, 5 connector sets, and a port puncher. With this kit you will be able to scale-up your device production from small scale to medium scale production with our user-friendly and efficient protocols. Once you are ready to begin mass production, know that the Flexdym is compatible with both roll-to-roll embossing and injection molding methods.
Unlike most other materials commonly used in microfluidics, Flexdym is the first material specifically formulated and developed for microfluidic diagnostic applications. Originally developed by our CEO, Emmanuel Roy, Flexdym was created for a point-of-care diagnostics and incorporates key material properties for these applications including softness, elasticity, optical transparency, instant assembly, treatment-free bonding, and compatibility with manufacturing processes at all scales of production. Flexdym takes you from initial prototyping to commercialization.
