Welcome to Mercene Labs! We are experts in material design for adhesion and surface control, offering a broad range of products and services. Our current products are UV-curable industrial coatings, resins for micro and nano fabrication, and substrate materials for medical diagnostics. Select the products or services you are interested in below.
We provide game changing primers for industrial coating of traditionally difficult substrates such as laminates and plastics. Our products are based on innovative new chemistry adopted to our customers’ challenges. Mercene M1812 is a fully plug-and-play 1k UV primer that enables instant and unparalleled adhesion to laminate surfaces through covalent bindings.
We develop and sell Ostemer® resins, a family of polymers developed specifically for microfluidics and other micro and nano manufacturing applications. Ostemers can use many common prototyping and manufacturing methods, allow built-in dry bonding to most materials, and easy surface modifications, including metallization.
Traditionally, point-of-care diagnostic devices are built in nitrocellulose and other paper based materials with natural variations in materials properties. Our polymer-based substrates allow precise control and high repeatability of pore sizes, surfaces properties, and capillary flow, making them suitable highly demanding diagnostic applications.
Depending on your specific need we also offer our expertise in material development to offer you a complete solution, for example in custom resin formulations according to you specific specifications, prototyping and manufacturing small series of microstructured devices or lateral flow assay modifications.
