Instrument and consumables design changes, even very minor ones, can have a big impact on the success of numerous applications in diagnostics and life science research. In some cases, an OEM (original equipment manufacturer) custom solution can overcome the limitations of existing designs and make new assays and analyses possible. Custom designed pipette tips, tubes, and plates may be created to reduce liquid retention, improve cell attachment, and offer greater durability compared to existing products. Finding a reliable OEM partner to develop and manufacture these custom solutions is essential to ensure stability, create a long-term partnership, and ultimately reduce the total cost of ownership.
