Pre-scored chip substrates provide new options for manufacturers of innovative diagnostic consumables
SCHOTT NEXTERION® PreScora will be featured at the American Association of Clinical Chemistry’s annual scientific meeting and clinical lab expo in Anaheim, Ca., August 4 to 8.

Biotech companies have made remarkable strides developing lab-on-a-chip (LoaC) technology — ever smaller chips that integrate laboratory functions for rapid diagnostic testing. Performing the precise manufacturing steps that these remarkable diagnostic consumables require, such as the application of coating or the printing of barcodes, is getting more difficult and expensive as miniaturization progresses. SCHOTT now eases these challenges by offering NEXTERION® PreScora. These pre-scored substrates can undergo processing steps as a whole and easily be fashioned to their final size afterwards. This lowers production cost significantly while enabling diagnostic consumable and equipment manufacturers to leverage the performance advantages of a high quality glass chip.
A Sensor Packaging Revolution
Pioneering technologies complement SCHOTT’s hermetic sensor packaging portfolio

Sensors are only as good as their individual components. When they need to function in extreme operating environments or deliver superior and stable optical performance, hermetic packaging and sealing comes into play. SCHOTT has now complemented its vast and long-established portfolio of hermetic packaging components with further ground-breaking innovations: HEATAN™ technology enables reliability in ultra-high temperature applications even beyond 1000°C, while Primoceler™ glass micro bonding enables ultra-miniaturized chip-size sensor packages.
Simplified High Temperature Sensor Designs
Revolutionary HEATAN™ technology enables less design complexity for sensors operating in 1000°C and above environments

Demands for improved fuel economy and stricter emissions standards, such as EURO 6, are bringing about technical challenges that must be fulfilled by a new generation of automotive sensors. The need for innovative engine management systems and intelligent exhaust treatment technologies will further increase with the likely introduction of EURO 7. These sensors will become increasingly sophisticated while needing to perform reliably in extreme temperatures and corrosive environments. SCHOTT’s revolutionary HEATAN™ technology is able to withstand these operating conditions with superior robustness, while also offering increased competitiveness through reduced design complexity.
