As diagnostic tests move closer to the point-of-care, reagent storage and delivery methods become a challenge. J-Pac Medical’s lab-on-chip reagent blisters allow reagents to be stored directly on the microfluidic cartridge, enabling the smaller footprint required by point-of-care diagnostic tests.

About J-Pac Medical
J-Pac Medical is the trusted manufacturing and packaging outsourcing partner to medical device companies seeking to deliver superior quality, improve time-to market, and simplify the supply chain for single-use medical devices.
The continued growth of point-of-care diagnostic tests offers improved patient outcomes as well as lower overall costs. A key to the success of these lab-on-chip applications is enabling reagents to be stored and dispensed on microfluidic test cards.
J-Pac has leveraged its expertise in polymer manipulation to become the leading manufacturer of reagent blister reservoirs used in lab-on-chip tests. Our technology allows reagents of multiple chemistries and volumes to be safely and effectively stored on the test card until it is required by the test.
Our unique approach offers a one-stop solution for both blister development and manufacturing. We have a deep technical understanding of blister technology for microfluidic applications and can design blisters for custom activation mechanisms. We produce blisters to support the product life cycle from samples and pilot runs, to initial launch and high volume production.
J-Pac offers both sample packs and development kits to help our customers that are in the early stage of development and seek to get acquainted with our technology. Sample packs include a small number of burst and frangible seal blisters while development kits come in larger volumes, specific shapes, and can include custom reagents. Additionally, J-Pac offers “No Head Space” technology to enable low-oxygen reagent storage.
A Diagnostic Device Company approached J-Pac Medical to develop reagent blisters that would accommodate single test quantities of reagent to be mounted onboard Point-of-Care Test Cards.
The company needed support to identify appropriate materials, methods and procedures to provide reagent filled foil blisters that could be shipped safely in bulk, yet dispense the reagent in a controlled way when coupled to the test card and ultimately activated during the performed diagnostic test.
J-Pac Medical identified and procured all equipment needed, fabricated all tooling, and developed & validated all processes associated with the filling, forming and sealing of these reagent blisters.
The company became first to market for a point-of-care diagnostic product utilizing reagents on a disposable test cartridge.
J-Pac is a leading manufacturer of biomedical textile devices, many of which must adhere to stringent anatomical geometries. We manufacture implantable-class textile based devices in four Class 7 clean rooms which contain customized equipment allowing 3D shaping without altering the base geometry and strength of the textile material.
Our textile products are often combined with other sterile devices in custom, ready-to-use sterile procedure kits that are designed and manufactured in-house on our thermoforming equipment. All our manufacturing processes are validated. Our capabilities also include custom fabricated mesh bags and filters for tissue bank allograft processing. These mesh bags and filters are manufactured and sterilized to the highest quality standards to improve cleanliness and adhere to FDA guidelines.
Our Unique Capabilities
J-Pac has developed unique manufacturing processes that allow customers to achieve anatomically correct shaped textiles with particulate-free, smooth edges that prevent irritation of the surrounding tissue.
Our processes include 3D forming, welding, sewing, and bonding an array of textile materials without altering the base properties of the raw material. In fact, we are able to increase the strength of the material at the joints and increase stability in many cases.
A Medical Device company with a broad presence in the soft tissue repair surgical segment came to J-Pac with a challenge to manufacture a 3-Dimensional shaped, multi-component textile implant.
The company had prototyped the product, but had failed to find a suitable manufacturer after a global search.
J-Pac Medical provided the tooling, equipment and validated processes to pressure form and assemble the textile implant, as well as provide it with a custom edge treatment designed to enhance tissue passage and reduce particulate.
The implant was provided to the customer in a tray/lid primary package put-up, also manufactured by J-Pac Medical.
The company achieved first to market status with an innovative design that became the leading mesh technology in the market.
Our turnkey packaging services are ideal for sterile surgical and procedure kits where multiple components are packed together and lot control and traceability are of the highest importance. Our packaging processes are validated and we have a long track record of exceptional on-time delivery. We specialize in medical device contract manufacturing of both small and medium volume products.
We provide better quality medical device contract packaging services because we control the thermoforming process of the packaging trays. We pride ourselves on our unparalleled ability to work with heavy gauge and other difficult materials such as polycarbonate. Our thermoformed packaging capabilities include post-forming fabrication to manufacturing thermoformed packaging with vents, handles, locking tabs, and welded internal components. We also provide customized trays to support specialized lyophilization processes.
A Cardiovascular Device Company came to J-Pac Medical with a request to establish a contract packaging capability in the United States. The existing packaging flow had been established in Europe, as was the package design.
As part of the overall transfer, J-Pac proposed a total redesign of this existing package to reduce the overall footprint, as well as downgauge all packaging materials.
In addition to reducing the overall footprint and down-gauging packaging materials, our redesigned package also enabled a 40% increase in Eto Sterilization throughput. Freight gains were also realized.
