image6J-Pac Medical frangible and burst seals provide many benefits for In Vitro Diagnostic (IVD) and near-patient, Point-of-Care diagnostic testing, including:

  • Precise unit-of-use volume: only the volume required for the test is stored.
  • Easy integration with test platforms: actuation accomplished manually or by using automation.
  • Cost savings: provides an economically-efficient way to develop evolving near-patient diagnostics solutions.
  • No instrument contamination: precise controlled release to required location.
  • Reproducible: accurate filling and dispensing by design; single or multiplex options.
  • Protection: blisters offer optimal protection and prevent gas exchange compared to on-board storage in plastic or messy drop applicators.
  • Volume: range of 30 µl – 5,000 µl for single-dose reagents.
  • The blister form factors are compatible with various reagents, powders, beads, liquids and solvents, thereby reducing the number of materials needed for the test kit.
  • Using larger blister cards with multiple reagents (multiplexing) can reduce the number of overall components and assembly steps.
  • The reagents can be lot-matched appropriately on the device, removing potential confusion and misuse by the end-user.
  • The materials used have low vapor barrier transmission rates, resulting in greater stability and longer shelf life (> 2 years), in some cases eliminating the need and cost of desiccants.
