Plastic components for life sciences and medical development

At IPFL, we produce plastic components for life sciences and scientific instrumentation using diffusion bonding, micro-machining and laser-welding methods developed in-house. These can be utilised to produce multi-layer components that are clean and precise, and free from particulate matter, residue and scaling. This makes them ideal for the medical industry, where many products must be clear and also adhere to strict FDA guidelines.

We have a strong reputation and long-standing relationships in the medical research and life sciences industries, and we liaise with the UK’s top universities and institutes, providing them with precision machining and 3D printing solutions.

Multi-layer microfluidic manifolds or point-of-care devices offer many advantages in the life sciences industry, due to their design flexibility. They can provide mixing channels, flow splitters, optical imaging windows, and reagent storage and introduction. Get in touch today and let us know what you are looking for – we will discuss your project and guide you through the production process.
