Capillary Film Technology launches microfluidic device manufacturing technology at MEDICA
20 November 2013
Biotechnology developer Capillary Film Technology Ltd (CFT) has announced the launch of a new fluoropolymer Micro Capillary Film (MCF) technology at MEDICA, which takes place from 20th to 23rd November at the Düsseldorf Fairgrounds, Germany.
Co-founder and Director of CFT, Dr. Nuno Reis said, “We will be presenting a disruptive manufacturing method for mass producing fluoropolymer microfluidic immunoassay devices. The parallel array of 200 micron internal diameter microcapillaries can deliver short assay times in a small disposable device that has outstanding optical properties suitable for existing colorimetric and fluorescent readouts.”
The CEO of CFT, Lee Smith added, “At MEDICA we look forward to showing established multinationals, small early stage organisations and healthcare providers, how we can significantly improve the capabilities and performance of their diagnostic products and biomarker tests, whether they are being used at the point of care, or within R&D. From our UK production facility we are able to adapt well established assay chemistry into a low-cost disposable microfluidic package, producing high-quality MCF on a massive scale to meet customer demand.”
