Matrix™1600 Reagent Dispensing Module

The Matrix™1600 Reagent Dispensing Module is the low cost solution for reagent application onto lateral flow test strip products. Ease of set-up and use makes this the ideal system for both product development and moderate volume manufacturing applications.

The Matrix™ 1600 Reagent Dispensing Module's robust construction utilizing high quality components provides the reliability required in production scenarios. The touch screen operator interface, helps insure consistent results from batch to batch.
 
Dispensing tip line spacing adjustment and replacement can be accomplished without tools, allowing quick change-over between products. No additional devices are required to set or adjust operational settings. The Matrix™ 1600 Reagent Dispensing Module platen speed, flow rate, dot spacing and dot volume are all configured using simple scroll-through interface screens.The Matrix™1600 Reagent Dispensing Module versus other dispensing modules:

- Integral touch screen Operator interface with help screens
- Single-axis dispensing (lines or dots)
- Integrated bed speed / dispense ratio eliminates the need for calculation
- Simplified fluid path results in virtually no clogging
- Ability to store up to 6 different recipe names and configurations

Matrix™ 2531 Rotary Slitting Module

The Matrix™ 2531 Rotary Slitting Module is an extension of Kinematic Automation's workhorse, the Matrix™ 2501 Rotary Slitting Module. This new version employs the best of Kinematic Automation's  technology to automatically feed cards, register them for accurate cutting, and then direct them into the slitting operation.

Since many high volume test strip products such as those for blood glucose testing, require accurate dimensional parameters, the Matrix™ 2531 Rotary Slitting Module is the perfect low-cost solution for accurately registering and slitting them. The cards are fed automatically from a "load-on-the-fly" card feed magazine, optically registered to a printed or physical feature on the strips, and then fed into a highly precise rotary slitting assembly.

After slitting, the strips exit the machine via a tapered output chute allowing easy collection in a bottle or vial. The Matrix™ 2531 Rotary Slitting Module options are available that improve strip collection efficiently. These options range from multi-sort diverter chutes for collecting the strips to a vibratory drive base to gently vibrate the output chute to make the strips fall easier.  The Matrix™ 2531 Rotary Slitting Module versus other rotary die cutting:

- Ergonomic Machine Design with easy set-up
- Blades require virtually no maintenance other than cleaning
- Excellent output geometry for strip handling
- Compatible with virtually all test strip materials
- Blade life is extremely long

Matrix™ 1201 Membrane Cutter

The Matrix™ 1201 Membrane Cutter is a low cost manual cutting system for laboratory use. Most immunoassay strips can be easily cut, including supported or unsupported nitrocellulose and nylon membranes with or without attached label material. The Matrix™ 1201 Membrane Cutter is the ideal cutting device for Western Blot and similar applications.

The integral membrane cutting assembly allows for quick and easy removal for cleaning or for changing strip width. 

Kinematic Automation's experience with custom manufacturing systems for high speed, close tolerance production slitters give  the Matrix™ 1201 Membrane Cutter the edge in dependability and performance.

About us

Company details

Kinematic Automation is a vertically integrated provider of state-of-the-art manufacturing systems exclusively for the Medical and Diagnostics Industries. In-house capabilities include all aspects of machine design and development, fabrication, assembly, and testing. In addition, our dedicated and tenured staff is very adept at machine installation and startup and in the training of operators and maintenance personnel.

We build each system to exacting standards, utilizing the tenets of lean manufacturing. And since we are 100% focused on the Bio-Medical and Diagnostics industries, we understand how to apply GMP, GAMP 5, and 21CFR Part 11, and Part 821 requirements. We also know how to listen to input from our customers. Our success over the years can be attributed in part to our insistence on making our customers an integral part of our project team. After all, it is they who know their product and existing processes the best.

One thing that really sets Kinematic apart from other providers of automated equipment is our unique approach to machine serviceability. We design and build every system with the service and maintenance technician clearly in mind. We provide easy and quick access to internal components of each machine through the use of quick release latches and slide-out, or pivot-open modules (or other similar assemblies). This ease of access translates to shorter service and MTR (mean time to repair) cycles, ultimately resulting in greatly enhanced machine efficiency and up-time.
