Controlling Fluid Behavior with Advanced Materials and Processes

 Microfluidics is the science of designing, manufacturing, and formulating devices and processes that deal with volumes of fluid on the order of nano liters.  Fralock’s combination of extensive materials expertise and precision manufacturing capabilities makes us a good partner for microfluidic applications of this type.

Microfluidics revolves around the precise manipulation of fluids within geometries where at least one characteristic dimension is on the sub-millimeter scale. At these scales, physical properties such as surface tension, fluidic resistance and energy transfer play dominate roles and can present both challenges and benefits depending on the application.

The goal of most microfluidic systems is to achieve a higher degree of integration than otherwise possible, thereby reducing size, cost and increasing reaction efficiency or speed. Many commercial applications in the life sciences space center on sample prep, assay reactions and detection.

Some examples of systems and microfluidic processes that employ this technology include blood-cell-separation equipment, biochemical assays, chemical synthesis, genetic analysis, drug screening, surface micromachining, laser ablation, and mechanical micro milling.

Fralock is the choice for organizations looking for innovative ideas, consistent quality manufacturing, and program management that extends from design development through production.

Fralock is an ISO 13485 registered company offering our customers seamless scale up to volume manufacturing which reduces time to market and secures the supply of high quality products.
