Can we get blister samples?
Yes. J-Pac has developed off-the-shelf samples that are an affordable and timely solution for up-front development. J-Pac offers several types of samples for purchase.
What materials do you offer?
What is the force required to actuate a blister?
The force required to activate a microfluidic reagent blister is dependent on the actuation mechanism (e.g. lance, manual compression, etc). A general guideline is 30N +/- 15N.
How do you actuate a blister?
What amount of fluid is recovered from the blister?
The amount of fluid recovered varies by the actuation and recovery method. A rule of thumb is 90% for common blister actuation methods.
What volumes can be filled?
Microfluidic reagent filling is custom to the application. A general range is between 30-1,000 ?L.
Can you perform low oxygen filling?
We have microfluidic reagent blister filling technology that can achieve both 100% fill as well as extremely low O2 levels - less than 2% on average.
What is a common fill ratio?
How do you mount the blisters?
