CUSTOM BLISTER DESIGN & MANUFACTURING

CUSTOM BLISTER DESIGN & MANUFACTURING

The world of sample-to-answer molecular diagnostics and sophisticated IVD tests demands fully integrated assays complete with reagents and buffers on device.  This demand lead Wi to develop an effective method of designing, rapid prototyping, filling, and sealing blisters.  Additionally, Wi has developed novel methods of opening and dispensing the fluids under control and with minimal force.  This translates to lower power requirements and tighter control of the assay being executed.

Wi has over 11 years of experience developing blisters and innovative methods of opening and dispensing fluids.

Experience:

  • Blister volume optimization to minimize solution costs
  • Blister geometry to minimize “crush” force
  • Soft Open Blister™
  • Soft Flow Blister ™
  • Empirical FEA (finite element analysis) methods
  • Multi-blister integration techniques
  • Difficult fluid loading
  • Beads-in fluid
  • Air mitigation
