We are contract manufacturers specializing in injection-molded nano- and micro-scale microfluidic consumables. Centrally located to major biotech hubs in California, Vantiva Precision BioDevices partners “locally” with clients, providing prototyping through scale manufacturing services.
A wholly owned-division of Vantiva with over 35 years injection-molding/molding experience, we offer end-to-end solutions for mass-manufacturing scale-up in multiple facilities; custom-packaging capability in Poland, Mexico and Australia; and simplified logistics with our own worldwide shipping capability.
Sean Lee of Vantiva Precision BioDevices has 10 years of industrial experience and subject matter expertise in the microfluidics arena, including product development, production line setup, process development, and quality control. Sean received his PhD in Electrical Engineering from University of Cincinnati in 2008, with a research focus in BioMEMS and microfabrication of Lab-on-a-Chip devices. He was in charge of the manufacturing when his previous company successfully commercialized a series of microfluidics consumable products.
John Town has led Vantiva’s technology development in the fields of precision molding and micro-fabrication for the past 20+ years – including most recently the addition of Vantiva Precision BioDevices’ Technical Innovation Center located in Southern California. Over the past 10 years, he has served on the Board of several leading standards and technology organizations. John holds an MS in Microelectronic Systems and has over 10 patents in the field of optical technology and injection molding.
Our core expertise is in lab-on-a-chip microfluidic systems and extends to markets including medical diagnostics clinical / Point-of-Care testing, environmental monitoring, agricultural testing, veterinary, drug discovery and life sciences.
Optical Imaging Flow Cell – Clear-to-Clear Laser Welding
The Requirement: A hermetically sealed flow cell with clear cover and channel layers with uniform channel height and no adhesive contamination.
Solution: Vantiva’s unique contour laser welding technology seals clear-to-clear materials, no darker energy absorbing layer is needed resulting in a clear optical path.
Precision High Pressure Droplet Generator – Solvent Bonding
The Requirement: A complex, optically clear droplet generator and pillar array design is required for precision drop size, distribution and segregation operating under high pressure.
Solution: Vantiva’s solvent bonding enabled the assembly of clear-to-clear materials avoiding cover films with adhesives that could overflow and impact droplet formation, biocompatibility and different surface energies.
The Requirement: A cost effective and reproducible alternative to silicone as a substrate for a precision nano-pore microarray used for genomic analysis.
Solution: Vantiva provided reproducible injection molded microarrays with uniform spaced pores as small as 20um in diameter performing well in the NGS application and at a reduced cost.
