AUTOMATION SOLUTIONS FOR POINT oF CARE DEVICES

We have developed automation for production of a number of point-of-care devices. Most of these products include complex sensing components which require delicate handling. The functions of the products we have assembled include devices that monitor:

  • Blood gas
  • Electrolyte
  • Metabolite
  • Cardiac markers
  • Lactate
  • Coagulation
  • Hematology
  • CD4 for HIV diagnostics

MEETING UNIQUE CHALLENGES

We have designed and built several systems to meet the unique challenges these medical devices present at rates of up to 60 parts per minute:

  • Assembly of small sensors and electrical components
  • Product feeding and handling
  • Laser marking of barcode and text
  • Web handling, slitting, cutting and lamination
  • Product joining including ultrasonic welding, cold and hot staking
  • Vision inspection of chemical sensor damage, cut quality, laser marking
  • Die cutting of plastic composite material, chromatography paper, filters
  • Precision dispensing of liquids
  • Handling of adhesive on input materials and process
  • Blister packaging 
  • Data Handling through MES and Recipe Management Systems

We developed solutions to these challenges through Proof of Principle experiments, and Pre Automation Solutions for product development, Design for Manufacturing (DFM), and Design for Assembly (DFA).
