Irish Life Sciences (ILS) are a leading producer of storage, plates, reagent reservoirs, assay plates and other laboratory consumables. Our storage plates are produced in a medical grade polypropylene with lower extractible elements than most plates giving greater confidence in sample storage and analysis. The additional benefit of using a medical grade polymer is that customers can be assured that unlike general commercial grades of material in use there will be no polymer formula changes without lengthy consultation and notice change period.
All of our products are tested on GC equipment by a leading university.
Our 50,000 sqft facility in Ireland has 2 class 8 cleanrooms and 40 production cells, mainly being the latest efficient electric presses supported with high levels of automation to ensure that we provide the most cost-effective solution available and that our products are RNase/DNase free. Six Sigma teams focus on waste elimination to underpin our competitive position.
With extensive polymer knowledge including a range of Polypropylenes, Polystyrenes, COC, COP and conductive materials we are able to respond to most requirements. We design our own tools with multi-cavity high performance capability having them then produced by leading European toolmakers. With our many years of tool design knowledge we are able to assist customers in developing bespoke Assay and Storage plates with complete tools or using our own tools with bespoke components to reduce project costs for customers.
In addition to our high levels of moulding capability we offer product assembly using ultrasonic welding and adhesive assembly processes. This provides ILS with the ability to bond similar materials or different materials such as borosilicate glass or COP onto assay plates for use with whole plate imaging equipment. We are certified for medical device assembly.
We operate a transparent quality system and welcome customer participation to ensure we build strong and collaborative working relationships. Our Quality Laboratory is equipped with all the metrology and test equipment required to meet customers’ needs including class-leading 3D vision and non-contact measurement systems, tensile testers, leak testers, and environmental test chambers.
Flexibility and customer service are key to our team. We pride ourselves on listening to customers requirements and providing attention to ensure we achieve their objectives. This core principle is applied regardless of the size of the account.
