ALine Honored as Design and Supply Partner for 2009 Medical Design Excellence Award Winner
Date:4/9/2009

ALine has been recognized as a design and supply partner for Osmetech Molecular Diagnostics, a winner in the In Vitro Diagnostics category for their eSensor-XT8, in the twelfth annual Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition. Results were announced in April issue of MD&DI (Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry) magazine, published this week.

Redondo Beach, CA (PRWEB) April 9, 2009 -- ALine has been recognized as a design and supply partner for Osmetech Molecular Diagnostics, a winner in the In Vitro Diagnostics category for their eSensor-XT8, in the twelfth annual Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) competition. Results were announced in April issue of MD&DI (Medical Device & Diagnostic Industry), published this week.

Dr. Leanna Levine, PhD, President and Founder of ALine expressed her enthusiasm; "The journey with Osmetech in the development of the microfluidic recirculation pump in the XT8 eSensor was an amazing validation of the value that microfluidics brings to these pioneering, multiplexed diagnostic platforms. The work with Osmetech has been an exciting and rewarding adventure for ALine, as it also demonstrated our unique approach to microfluidic prototyping using polymer laminate technology (PLT)."

As a supply and design partner, ALine routinely delivered prototypes with a typical three to five day turn around. This allowed Osmetech to shorten the development time, resolve critical issues, and to compress the design-fabricate-test cycle so that subtle differences could be observed and incorporated into the next generation design.

"Osmetech has demonstrated the viability of a truly pioneering fluidic design and deserves recognition", remarked Dr. Levine, "and we are proud to be honored for our part in their success."

ALine is entering its 7th year of operation, supporting the development of novel microfluidic devices with sophisticated functionality and anticipates substantial growth for this industry. While many other areas struggle, the need for better and more accurate diagnostics is still driving the development of Bio-MEMS and related technologies to new heights and increased revenues.

ALine creates a bridge for the commercialization of novel microfluidic platforms using microfabrication methods that enable pioneering medical diagnostic products and improved assays. ALine does this by providing rapid prototyping, engineering support, and low to mid-volume manufacture of Lab-on-a-Chip devices. A description of our capabilities can be found here.

About the Award:
Sponsored by MD&DI and organized by Canon Communications LLC, MDEA is the premier awards program for the medical technology community. It recognizes the achievements of medical device manufacturers, their suppliers, and the many people behind the scenes. MDEA-winning entries excel in the areas of product innovation, design and engineering achievement, end-user benefit, and cost-effectiveness in manufacturing and healthcare delivery.

A comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, industrial design, medicine, and diagnostics. The 2009 jury selected 32 winners in 10 medical product categories. The award ceremony will be held June 4, during the Medical Design and Medical Manufacturing East 2008 Conference and Exposition at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

The award is based upon descriptive materials submitted to a panel of jurors; the jurors did not verify the accuracy of any submissions or of any claims made and did not test the item to which the award was given.
