Mannheim, Germany – velixx GmbH has now joined forces with the renowned experts at HSG-IMIT’s Lab-on-a-Chip Design & Foundry Service for implementation of assays into Lab Discs. This collaboration aims to advance commercialization of Lab-on-a-Chip technology, offering excellent opportunities to clients for custom-designing and manufacturing of complex laboratory assays into easy-to-use, compact “Lab-on-a-Chip” formats.

Lab-on-a-Chip, also called “Lab Disc”, involves precision micro structuring of a plastic foil or disc to integrate single or multiple laboratory assays and scale them down onto a compact disc. The goal of this collaboration is to offer rapid and cost-effective development of innovative Lab-on-a-Chip systems on a commercial-scale.

The team comprises of highly qualified engineers, researchers, technicians and business experts. This allows for a huge number of opportunities for effectively realizing a given assay into a well-designed, compact and fully-automated Lab Disc. The services include feasibility studies, consulting, design, prototyping, manufacturing, quality certification and market launch support.

With its proven competence in commercialization of medical innovation velixX will act as the bridge between the technical expertise and the commercial-scale realization of the product.

The Lab-on-a-Chip Design & Foundry Service of HST-IMIT has just received government funding and support for installation of a serial manufacturing line for Lab Discs. velixX is also involved in supporting the institute for setting up this line to provide professional manufacturing services.
