Laser processing creates more accurate, more convenient in vitro diagnostic test strip components that require smaller
In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) test devices are defined as medical devices used for the analysis and examination of specimens like blood and tissue samples for the main purpose of providing information for diagnoses in a controlled environment outside of the patient. These in vitro diagnostic devices are typically designed to limit the amount of sample specimen required for an accurate analysis.
Expensive hard tooling is problematic for the creation of complex, multi-layer in vitro diagnostic components. LasX’s LaserSharp® high-speed non-contact processing technology makes these intricate designs a reality.
Replace traditional methods for manufacturing test strip components with flexible laser processing. At LasX, we can manufacture complex in vitro diagnostic components in single-layer and multi-layer structures.
If your IVDs incorporate intricate filter media, they’re also good candidates for digital converting. LaserSharp® technology gives you a non-contact method to process thin extensible materials and seal edges when necessary.
At LasX, we work closely with your design team from process conception to final production to capitalize on the advantages inherent in our LaserSharp conversion process. We’ll help you maintain a robust process window and eliminate problems associated with using different technologies during design development.
LaserSharp® digital converting gives you these advantages when compared to hard tooling:
