ALine has developed a fabrication method for rapid prototyping and volume manufacture of microfluidic Lab-on-a-chip devices for applications in cell culture, medical diagnostics, and laboratory research. They can provide what injection molding and embossing cannot, enclosed channels and complex 3D structures in a biocompatible plastic device. Further, their ability to use a variety of materials, including porous membranes, flexible valves, recirculating pumps, and electrodes means they provide device developers with more functionality at a lower development cost. Their experience with bio-compatible materials and their proven success with NASA in the development of a robust, functional fluidic system for autonomous cell culture in space, demonstrate their ability to deliver the right solution at the right time, no excuses.
ALine's goal is to provide molecular diagnostic product developers, researchers, and cell biologists, biocompatible, high quality tools to take their research or product to the next level by implementing the advantages of microfluidics in a user-friendly, cost effective format. The company's attention to quality and their ability to manufacture in volume is demonstrated by their family of products for spectroscopy; the FluoroVette™, a microvolume, UV transparent cuvette for fluorescence of precious protein samples, and the SpecVette™, a short pathlength cuvette for measurement of opaque samples, where dilution would alter the absorption spectrum. All these products are available in two formats:
Custom modifications of the FluoroVette™ with porous membranes have also provided an alternate platform for researchers to develop bead-based displacement assays in a convenient format that interfaces with most standard research-grade fluorimeters.
