Flow Circuits, developer of a design platform that enables teams to draw, simulate, automate and build fluidic systems, and Rapid Fluidics, market leader in 3D-printed design and rapid prototyping services for customers with microfluidic system needs, announced a partnership agreement.
“Working with the high-quality Flow Circuits design approach allows our customer base to improve upon our already rapid delivery timelines” says Paul Marshall, CEO of Rapid Fluidics, “And access to their software and experienced team also broadens our own design consultancy capabilities. Even more exciting this partnership may also create an opportunity for additional partnering to develop a microfluidic products and services community to even better serve our combined customer base”
Thanks to the combined workflow, microfluidic designs can be realized using Flow Circuits’ software and submitted to Rapid Fluidics for rapid 3D printing and delivery with just one click.
“Rapid Fluidics is perfectly suited to help us realize our “Design-Test-Build” vision by offering its manufacturing services to the Flow Circuits user base, giving them tools to prototype complex integrated devices in days.” Adds Andrew Krippner, Founder of Flow Circuits, “This partnership will significantly benefit our customers, and our industry as a whole.
This strategic alliance marks a significant advance in the development and manufacture of microfluidic systems by providing an efficient bridge between design and production. With this partnership, Flow Circuits and Rapid Fluidics position themselves at the forefront of innovation in microfluidics by enabling their customers to move faster and more effectively from idea to finished product.
