  • Microfluidics. Applied to Diabetes Management Products.

    When it comes to microfluidics—3M gets it. We are your trusted source for advanced technologies used in the design and manufacture of microfluidic devices. Whatever your need, whether it be a specific layer for a biosensor or an integrated consumable for a lab-on-a-chip application or a diabetes management product, we’ll translate that need into a solution.

    What makes 3M so good at this? Our long-standing reputation for innovation, combined with the way we build quality into every product, makes us the partner of choice with device manufacturers worldwide. Add in a culture of creativity and curiosity, scientists and engineers who understand microfluidics as well as diabetes management products, and an environment based on health care device experience—you’ll see that 3M has the perfect mix of resources to support your design and regulatory challenges.

    The bottom line? 3M has the expertise and knowledge base to develop a microfluidic solution to help keep you on the leading edge. We speak your language. We Speak Microfluidics.

    Hydrophilic films: Fluid transport films consist of specialty coatings and materials to enable efficient flow of fluids through capillary channels. 3M Surfactant-Free Hydrophilic Technology offers a chemically inert solution to minimize the potential for test inference and bias. 3M hydrophilic films offer excellent transparency with low auto-fluorescence designed for optical assay performance.

    Substrates & Films: We use a variety of specialty materials and substrates for your microfluidic device solutions such as engineered membranes, polyester films, coatings, engineered fluids, and more.

    Bioassay Compatible Materials: Adhesives formulated for most biological assays such as PCR, qPCR, and ELISA. Designed to minimize the potential for chemical and/or optical interference required by diagnostic devices.

    Adhesives & Spacer Tapes: 3M pressure sensitive adhesive technologies engineered for low build-up of residue in high volume die cutting operations. Manufactured to tight thickness specifications and containing low levels of volatiles that facilitates compatibility with your chemistry. Stick-to-skin solutions for continuous monitoring or therapeutic delivery, and microfluidics with diabetes management products in mind.

    Structured Materials: Precisely-shaped, micro-replicated three-dimensional surface structures are incorporated onto a continuous substrate enabling a new dimension of physical, chemical and optical properties at large manufacturing scale. Examples include channels for fluid transport or wicking, as well as high density microarrays and well structures for use in advanced fluid analysis and sequencing. Expand your design capabilities with microstructures to enable a cost-effective approach.

    Design & Fabrication: Leverage 3M “know-how” in the design and manufacture of integrated consumables with your chemistries. We offer material expertise and multiple technology platforms alongside state-of-the-art molding, spotting and assembling capabilities in an ISO 13485 or 9001 compliant facility.


The bottom line? 3M has the expertise and knowledge base to develop a microfluidic solution to help keep you on the leading edge for your diabetes management medical device application. We speak your language. We Speak Microfluidics.
