The LFDA-3 is a revolutionary new step in diagnostics manufacturing. It provides manufacturers flexible production capacity within a desktop footprint. The solution is easily adaptable and can assemble multiple test devices with minimal product specific adjustments.
The Ginolis LFDA-3.
The LFDA product family is built on the Xanthia platform and also includes modules for additional test strips, RFID tags, labeling and printing that can be seamlessly integrated into the system.
A 2-level conveyor bulk feeder, rotating disc and two Scara robots provide a controlled and monitored input of housings with a customizable buffer. Machine vision inspection ensures each housing fits QC requirements.
The lateral flow device is transferred from module to module utilizing the Ginolis intelligent transfer unit. The multi-functional transfer system moves the components on carriers along a glass platform.
The strip cutting module cuts, inspects and places test strips onto the lateral flow test bottom housing. The test strips are cut by a linear servo blade. Vision guidance ensures precise strip width.
The LFDA is available with single card, card magazine or reel infeed.
The assembled lateral flow device is sealed together utilizing a servo driven press unit with adjustable height and force parameters.
In addition to multiple machine vision quality control checks throughout the production line, a final QC station ensures proper cassette closure.
