PCR Cartridge

Our Role

  • Automatically splitting a single sample to into four metered volumes
  • Prevent fluid movement during temperature cycling
  • Allows shelf stable storage of lyophilized reagents
  • Interfaces with an instrument for temperature control and detection


  • IVD
  • Point of Care
  • PCR



Features & Accomplishments

  • Incorporated fluid paths that split sample
  • Incorporated hydrophobic vents that allows air to pass into volume metering chambers, but prevents fluid from entering them
  • Developed sealed vessels to receive excess pressure, while preventing external venting
  • Created a sliding valve that prevents fluid motion and leaking during temperature cycling.
  • Included material selection that is compatible with all requirements, including chemistry and biology
