Custom Designed Seal for Critical Life Science Application

Application

A leading human genome research company manufacturing high throughput DNA sequencing systems using MEMS silicon wafers, 12 billion spots of DNA per silicon slide.

Problem

Requirement for special “make and break” seal in the flow cell manifold with smooth flow path for reagents, otherwise liquid would be trapped leading to cross contamination, bacteria growth and DNA sequencing results would be adversely affected.

Solution

PPE offered a custom designed Perlast® G67P seal bonded to a PEEK ring, backed up with full FEA analysis to validate the design concept.

Result

Perlast® G67P solved all application problems and is Compatible with fluorine based chemistries and universally suitable for both wet and dry semiconductor processes including Lithography, Plasma, PVD, CVD, Etch, Stripping and Cleaning.
