SCHOTT MINIFAB, an Australia-based subsidiary of SCHOTT that develops and manufactures microfluidic devices for point-of-care and life sciences consumables, has had a long-standing close customer relationship with Applied Microarrays Inc. (AMI).

Together, they develop biotech substrates for diagnostics applications. The expertise of AMI will further strengthen SCHOTT’s ability to offer a single-source contract manufacturing solution. The deal is expected to close in early October.

Through this acquisition, SCHOTT MINIFAB significantly expands its biosensor printing capabilities. This is of particular importance as demand is growing for the manufacturing of point-of-care microarray consumables, especially in applications such as infectious disease detection.

AMI will soon be moving to a larger facility in the Phoenix, Arizona area. Its new location will greatly increase SCHOTT’s manufacturing footprint in the United States to serve its global customer base.
