Plastic Manifolds and Life Science Applications

Plastic manifolds are uniquely capable of meeting the precise requirements of life science applications. Cell counters, in particular, are an excellent application for plastic manifolds. Engineers create the counting window by laminating a plastic sheet with an internal pocket. When combined with an optical surface, the window enables a scientist to align and measure the cells, while low auto-fluorescence supports identification.
