Did you know that PTS is internationally recognized for modifying the surfaces of microfluidic & biological devices? Check us out on Lily Kim’s www.Fluidicmems.com list of manufacturers. These partnerships in small devices have a global footprint! Our team’s contribution to the community are elements of advanced polymer chemistry and gas plasma physics; a knowledge that simply translates to targeted conjugation of complex compounds. We say complex because of the uniquely commercialized methods by which our gas plasma interacts with a substrate. In some biological applications it is desirable to deliver functional species intact and un-fragmented. The PTS development lab closely consults its affiliates in how to construct novel surfaces for these new applications. Although fluidic technologies start micro many need to end big and in high volume. We make the big or small step using plasma.
My colleague Mikki Larner shared with me a chart illustrating the growing importance of polymeric substrates in the Medical and Microfluidic arena. Two undoubtedly powerful factors are processing cost and scalability.Recommend
