Lamina precision extruded fluoropolymer tubes have been used in a number of medical applications. Sealed tubular elements are proven components in self injection systems and fine bore tubes and are used to insulate equipment as a component within foetal monitoring equipment.
Lamina's subsidiary company Capillary Film Technology Ltd (CFT) has been formed to commercialise a novel 10 bore micro-capillary film (MCF). CFT is a technology and product development company for life sciences and clinical diagnostics. CFT is able to bring a disruptive manufacturing technique for the production of low-cost multiplex microfluidic material. Using exclusive know-how and IP, CFT are currently developing the next generation of lateral flow technology that allows rapid, fully quantitative multiplex immunoassays for field and bed-side/point-of-care use.
