Minco Releases New Pipette Heating System for Immunoassay Applications
Thinnest Etched-foil Heater on the Market Eliminates Need for Supporting Heat Sources
New York, NY - MD&M East, June 13, 2005 - Minco, (www.minco.com/pipette) a designer and manufacturer of critical components for critical medical diagnostic applications today announced the release of the thinnest immunoassay pipette heating system available.
"Prior to the development of the Minco Pipette heating system, medical diagnostic professionals experienced difficulty in maneuvering immunoassay applications," said Brian Williams, Minco Marketing Manager. "In order to facilitate accurate immunoassay readings, Minco engineers developed a pipette heater designed to function without additional bulk such as tubular heaters, fans and other supporting framework."
At a mere .003" (.076 mm) thick, the Minco Pipette heating system is the thinnest, lightest and most flexible pipette heater on the market today. The heater also features an extremely fast warm-up time from room temperature to body temperature in under a second.
The new Minco pipette heater boasts the use of Thermofoil(TM), a Minco-developed etched-foil heating technology, which when combined with polyimide insulation, wraps completely around a .060" (1.52 mm) pipette.
When a Pipette is completely wrapped by the new Minco Pipette heater, the temperature of the blood or biological chemistry can be kept at a uniform and accurate heat level. This means that the time necessary to adjust temperature is reduced and money is ultimately saved.
"The new Minco pipette heater is a tangible demonstration of Minco's dedication to providing the medical diagnostic community with complete thermal, sensing and packaging solutions designed to shorten medical diagnostic supply chains and increase time-to-market," said Williams.
