Project Code: 16020
Project Title: Adhesive Single-Slide Dispense Packaging System for Coverslips
Project Type: Industry
Project Intellectual Property: Company Controlled
Project Citizenship Restriction: No
Sponsor Company: Ventana Medical Systems Inc.
Description: The project’s goal is to design a single-serve consumable adhesive package and adhesive dispense system. The ultimate aim is to reduce the sponsor’s reliance on a single distributor and to lower the cost per test. The single-serve consumable was designed to dispense a required volume. Additionally, an adhesive dispense system was designed and built specifically to be compatible with the single-serve consumable adhesive package. The system automates the dispense process after a slide and consumable are loaded, and presents a slide with adhesive applied that is ready for manual coverslipping.
