MedPhab pilot line develops a technology map allowing a systematic matching between technology needs (customer) and the pilot line offering (modularized competences of MedPhab partners). Typical combinations of (sub-) technologies are combined in production kits to allow accelerated and more efficient development in previously tested and proven process flows between MedPhab partners. Diagnostic devices consist of numerous photonic and non-photonic components that need to be integrated for the required overall functionality.
MedPhab uses an approach to simplify the development of these diverse systems by using modular technology blocks covering 1) Photonic components, 2) Non-photonic peripherals, 3) Integration and 4) Post-processing steps. This modular concept enables a structured approach to highly fragmented heterogeneous technologies.
For fabrication cases, the fabrication chain is designed by choosing the relevant blocks. Depending on the customer’s needs, either customized or standardized fabrication processes with ISO13485 certificate can be applied (Development support).
MedPhab offers a wide portfolio of photonics technologies: fiber optics, micro-optics, integrated circuits and active components.
Roll-to-roll printing and digital printing of ultrapure gold allows production of multilayer circuitries and multilayer medical electrodes and other printed electronics components/parts. Flex-to-Rigid platform enables the integration of highly miniaturized electronics functionalities.
Fiber-waveguide coupling, optical and other component assembly alongside surface activation comprise MedPhab’s multiple integration capabilities.
Postprocessing MedPhab capabilities include overmolding, hermetic sealing, opto-fluidic interface and thin film deposition.
MedPhab capabilities on development support ranges from Simulation and analysis, system design, characterization, testing.
Diagnostic devices consist of numerous photonic and non-photonic components that need to be combined for the required functionality. Modular blocks with preliminary division enable a structured approach to highly fragmented heterogeneous technologies used in component manufacture and device integration. For each case, the fabrication chain is designed by choosing the relevant blocks. Model-Cases are chosen to create libraries for four segments: photonics component manufacture, non-photonic peripheral manufacture, device integration and post-processing.
