With our scientific expertise in microfluidics and bioanalytical systems, we ensure practical, product-oriented solutions. That is easy for us to say, so don’t just take our word for it. We asked Pear Bio’s CEO, Duleek Ranatunga, what it’s been like working with us.
ALine was recommended by a friend, who spoke highly of us, and we exceeded expectations. Before working with us, Ranatunga said: “We were using cheap prototyping labs to make microfluidic chip designs. They had poor quality control that would result in chips that always leaked. Some prototyping labs had limited equipment, and they would have to implement designs that weren’t user-friendly for our microfluidic chips to accomplish their task.”
What he found while working with us was: “Our work with ALine allowed us to rapidly prototype multiple generations/versions of microfluidic chips with good quality to validate our biology. The cost of the chips came down rapidly with scale.”
Ranatunga added: “The hands-on, collaborative approach has been the best and most surprising part of the experience. Our technology includes components outside of what ALine produces, such as pumps and hydrogels. We sent these components to the ALine facility so the microfluidic chip designs could be built and tested for compatibility with everything else in the system, which saved us a lot of future headaches trying to fit everything together.”
Thanks, Duleek, the whole team puffed up when they read your review. Daniel especially has enjoyed solving the challenges you have thrown his way, and he’s proud to meet your expectations!
