Rainbow Technology Systems (RTS), based In Glasgow, has leveraged its knowledge and expertise in printing, chemistry, design and engineering to further strengthen its’ capability in the development and production of biosensors.

David Westwood, RTS sales and marketing manager, who will be presenting at the BioDot Operon conference in Zaragoza, Spain (15-17 May), said: The complexity of processes required to both efficiently and economically produce sensors in their millions presents challenges to the industry. At Rainbow we are proud to be able to deliver a range of products and services that meet these challenges and which enable customers to acquire a broad range of capabilities from one partner, Rainbow Technology.”

By definition, a biosensor is a device which uses a living organism or biological molecules, especially enzymes or antibodies, to detect the presence of chemicals.  It is an analytical device which converts a biological response into an electrical signal, so the finished product requires a controlled transformation of a base carrier material into useable individual sensors involving a complex additive process and precision handling of the sensors during production.

Rainbow is one of the UK’s leading process design and manufacturing specialists. With in-house laboratories, printing, 3D design suites and product fabrication, RTS is ideally positioned to help customers with the following specialist capabilities:

  • Biosensor design and prototyping
  • Biosensor printing
  • Complete automated biosensor processing to include handling, cropping, cleaning, alignment, dosing, singulation and packing.

RTS, whose projects include the design and assembly of a fully automated process line for one of the world’s leading manufacturers of water testing kits, continues to invest in highly skilled engineers to accommodate increased demand for its’ products and services.
