Biotech companies have made remarkable strides developing lab-on-a-chip (LoaC) technology — ever smaller chips that integrate laboratory functions for rapid diagnostic testing. Performing the precise manufacturing steps that these remarkable diagnostic consumables require, such as the application of coating or the printing of barcodes, is getting more difficult and expensive as miniaturization progresses. SCHOTT now eases these challenges by offering NEXTERION® PreScora. These pre-scored substrates can undergo processing steps as a whole and easily be fashioned to their final size afterwards. This lowers production cost significantly while enabling diagnostic consumable and equipment manufacturers to leverage the performance advantages of a high quality glass chip.
A plethora of new products and upgrades are being showcased on booth 827, including:
