Diagnostic Device Components

PolarSeal has been actively involved in this fast-growing market sector from the start, and now plays a key role in the development and manufacture of new diagnostic test strips.


The development of accurate in-home and over-the-counter diagnostic test products for a wide range of healthcare issues has driven intense development of multi-layer laminate construction of specialist adhesive coated films and space tape lamination.

In Vitro Diagnostic Devices

In vitro diagnostic devices (IVDs) play a crucial role in monitoring blood glucose and are widely used in the detection, prevention and monitoring of other tests such as cholesterol, rapid coagulation, infection disease, pregnancy, and other health- related factors. Other diagnostic applications include:

Due to its multi-layered structure, there are several components required to build the IVD devices. The choice of adhesive and material is vital in the construction of the device. Hydrophilic Tape construction to consider:

PolarSeal understands the importance of reliable adhesives and the role they play in IVD device construction.
