For organizations looking to commercialize technology innovations or companies looking to develop a high-quality product with a competitive edge, Porvair Sciences has a long history of successfully helping customers develop new and innovative microplates and microplate equipment.
The company has specialized in microplate technology since 1992, allowing it to accumulate a wealth of technical and production expertise in custom microplate design and manufacture.
Academic research groups and commercial companies are able to benefit from a range of proprietary techniques in the generation of custom microplates including polymer ultrasonic welding, plasma surface treatment, co-sintering of polymers/silicas and ‘two-shot’ injection moulding. Another specialty area is moulding of ultra-pure plastic materials such as polystyrene, polypropylene and polycarbonate.
“Over the last few years we have helped a growing number of enterprising academic and governmental research groups commercialize their exciting microplate innovations,” says Steve Knight, the company’s marketing director. “Our OEM product development work for life science and chromatography companies has also grown. Feedback from these commercial organizations indicates it is our innovative designs, rapid prototyping, application knowledge and automation-friendly high-precision moulding capabilities that were key criteria in them selecting Porvair Sciences as a development partner.”.
