Microtiter Plate Circuitry

Conductive Technologies offers expertise in prototyping, production and final assembly of circuitry for microtiter plate assemblies through the integration of a printed or ablated electrode arrays to a bottomless microtiter plates. Connection to individual wells is achieved through edge connection for low-density assemblies or backside contact pads connecting device electrodes using a through-hole printed circuitry. CTI offers several methods for reagent deposition to electrodes as needed for each application. We also provide packaged assemblies for distribution and contract gamma sterilization services for printed electronics.
