Asheville, NC—There’s an anniversary to celebrate: it’s been one year since Enplas, a multinational manufacturer of engineered plastics, rebranded the North Carolina-based PolyLinks as “Enplas Life Tech,” following its acquisition in June 2017.
In the time since, Enplas Life Tech has strengthened its commitment to customers in the life science industry with increased technological capability in manufacturing high-precision consumables.
As Enplas’s flagship east coast life science consumables production center, Enplas Life Tech brings products to customers in new ways. With wider geographical coverage, the global Enplas group achieves faster product delivery with a wider variety of products, augmenting Enplas’s unique microfluidics manufacturing technology with Enplas Life Tech’s expertise in thermoplastic elastomers for fluid sealing.
Both Enplas’s global business and Enplas Life Tech share the same commitment to customers: they are dedicated to solving the most difficult development problems with clients with the highest quality.
The expanded global Enplas group brings many benefits to customers in the life science and biotechnology industry from their expanded network over the U.S.:
- Easy geographical access from both east and west coasts.
- Availability of intricate microfluidics and auxiliary products (e.g., cartridge housings, reagent bottle sealings) including systems that require robust thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) air or liquid sealing. This applies to any life science application, from pharmaceutical manufacturing to in-vitro diagnostics (IVD) such as next generation sequencing (NGS), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), immunoassay, electrophoresis, and single cell analysis including sample preparation.
- Availability of both rapid prototyping and cleanroom mass production and assembly in the U.S.
The Enplas group aims to serve more of the needs of the life science industry to make the world a better place than the day before.
