Die cut components for wicking fluids are used in medical, bioscience, and filtration applications. They are made of porous plastic materials with open-celled structures and omni-directional pores. Depending on your application, a specific POREX wicking material may be required. POREX, a trademark of POREX Corporation, is a family of porous thermoplastics that support precision die cutting.Advantages of Porex Wicking Material
POREX wicking material is designed to optimize fluid transfer (wicking) for a specific end-use requirement. The wick’s open-celled structure supports the control of liquid volume capacity and fluid transfer rates. The wick’s surface energy can enhance media capillarity, the rise or depression of a liquid in a small passage such as open-celled, omni-directional pores.
Die Cut Components for Rapid Diagnostics and Microfluidics
Die cut components for rapid diagnostics and microfluidics are used for medical screening, treatment monitoring, and general preventive medicine. These point-of-care (POC) products provide a portable, cost-effective, and easy-to-use alternative to microscopy and other clinical methods that require access to laboratories or laboratory equipment. Applications include blood glucose monitoring and disease detection.
