Hexano is there when you need someone to commercialize your Microfluidic, Lab-on-a-Chip and other plastic products by handling all your prototyping & manufacturing needs. This will allow you to focus on your core business of development and distribution. Your products will be manufactured and assembled in an ISO 13485 clean room environment.
Your intellectual property will always be guarded!
Our core capability is the custom manufacturing of microfluidic chips through plastic injection. This manufacturing method is the most versatile and lowest cost option for mass production. It can be scaled from a few hundred pieces to millions of pieces per year. It can produce channels down to 30 microns in width.
Here are some of the highlights of the factory:
10000 square feet combined clean room area
ISO-8 Clean room (Class 100 000)
ISO 9002 and ISO 13485 certified
The first step is a full Design for Manufacturing study of your product so that molding can be made efficiently. This will result in the lowest cost per piece. The mold design will take into consideration your tolerances. In most cases, you are only required to buy a mold insert instead of a full mold which translates into a lower tooling cost.
We have the wide variety prototyping methods and materials to choose from. Prototyping also allows you to move to a hard plastic to validate your design. Each have their own advantages depending on the application.

Having been involved in plastic part design and manufacturing for over a decade, Hexano was founded to focus on the future of medicine, diagnostics and other life sciences applications. We partner with a wide array of suppliers to bring about the best solutions for clients and their specialty needs.
Hexano was founded with the mission of Miniaturizing Medicine. Microfluidics are the gateway to the future of medicine. They enable the precise handling of small volumes of liquids and gases. This has allowed them to miniaturize entire lab analysis onto a finger sized chip. This is why they are the underlying technology of Lab-on-a-Chip (LOC). The miniaturization is what will drive incredible technological advancements, similar to what the transistor has been able to accomplish.
Lab-on-a-Chip technology is lowering the time and cost of standard medical testing. With an extreme market growth, they are poised to dominate the future of medical diagnostics and treatments. Hexano will be at the forefront of the medical revolution.
