Natech Plastics is an industry leader in providing design, engineering, production, and assembly of injection molded microfluidic devices.
Whether you need a few hundred pieces or hundreds of thousands, Natech partners with diagnostic companies to create and manufacture reliable, high-quality, injection molded microfluidic chips.
There is an increased demand for point-of-care diagnostics, and we work one-on-one with our clients to develop and produce microfluidic devices to meet that demand.
Microfluidics is rapidly emerging as a breakthrough technology that finds applications in diverse fields ranging from biology and chemistry to information technology and optics. The opportunities that are emerging offer exciting growth in this market.
What is Microfluidics?
Microfluidics deals with the behavior and manipulation of fluids through small, constrained channels. Typically, microfluidic systems transport, mix, separate, or process specific fluids using a pump and chip.
Examples of microfluidics include lab-on-a-chip technology and DNA chips. Most recently, microfluidics has been used for diagnostics in healthcare. Using microfluidic technology, devices can detect certain diseases, including cancer, as well as pathogens from the environment.
