Glass components with microstructures for medical applications

IMT, a leading manufacturer of optical glass components is exhibiting at COMPAMED for the second time.
“We exhibited in 2008 in order to address the still infant market for glass components for microfluidic and biophotonic applications” says A. Tzannis, PhD – “we were pleasantly surprised by the result!”
IMT is applying its competences in large scale manufacturing to meet the demand from the medical industry for high-end microstructures on and in glass.
“Our know-how in microchannels, electrodes, optical wave guides, micro-optics and coatings combined with our capabilities in large scale manufacturing have been welcomed by the industry. Glass has definite advantages in some applications, we look forward to participate in these.”
