DYNAMIC BIOARRAY – Fluidic Sampler
Taking the client’s existing block model as starting reference, Cramasie progressed the design of the fluidic sampler/micro-slide caddy to a design for volume production. Through quick concept and prototype phases, industrial designs and mechanisms were evaluated, with a focus on usability and accuracy of slide position, before the suite of plastics components were fully realised for injection moulding. A key consideration was an effective tooling strategy of family tools to achieve to suit the client’s NRE budget.
