ed for the determination, so excess
reagent is not required. The liquid
volume for single dose reagents can
range from 30 to 5,000 µl.
• The blister form factors are compatible
with various reagents, powders, beads,
liquids, and solvents, thereby reducing
the number of materials needed for
the test kit.
• Larger blister cards with multiple
reagents (multiplexing) can be used to
reduce the number of overall components and assembly steps.
• The reagents can be lot-matched on
the device, removing potential confusion and misuse by the end user.
• Reservoirs are lightweight and disposable components when integrated into
the device, reducing waste.
• The materials used have low vapor
barrier transmission rates, resulting
in greater stability and longer shelf
life (> 2 years), in some cases elim-
inating the need and cost of desic-
Additionally, blisters are easily
customized and integrated into many
existing platforms; this helps manufacturers create new offerings without
drastic changes in the product line. Burst
pressure and pin-point release of the
reagent from the blister reservoirs can be
designed into the blister shape for either
manual or mechanical actuation. Accurate filling and dispensing by design — in
single or multiplex formats — allows tests
to be consistent and reproducible.
The application of frangible seal technology to reagent blisters enables greater
control over unit-of-measure release of
testing reagents and provides improved
performance characteristics and practical
implications when compared to current
drop bottle formats.
These features translate into benefits
for the POC device manufacturer by
lowering manufacturing and packaging
costs, increasing reagent stability, and
providing a smaller disposable footprint
that offers easy, accurate, and precise
In turn, by integrating frangible seal
technology into on-board reagent delivery, POC tests can lower cost, shorten
time-to-result, and increase reliability
and stability. Frangible sealed reagent
blisters show the promise of making
POC devices more affordable and reproducible, with improved patient outcomes
and high confidence in the test results.
