Arrhythmia Research Technology Inc. announced that its wholly owned subsidiary Micron Products Inc. has entered into a three-year supply agreement with the Molecular Diagnostics division of Osmetech plc.

Micron, through its New England Molders division, will provide manufacturing services for consumables components used in Osmetech’s OPTI TUBE™ and OPTI GENE™ product lines.

The OPTI TUBE™ product line consists of patented plastic tubes with ergonomic sealing caps and carousel which have been designed as a replacement for the glass capillaries which are used in the Roche LightCycler®.

The OPTI TUBE™ developed from combined efforts by Osmetech and NEM engineers have resulted in a cost effective alternative to glass.

Osmetech’s OPTI GENE™ instrument is designed to meet the requirements of the molecular diagnostic market in the small to medium sized hospital. This product is designed to enable simple and more complex molecular diagnostic tests to be performed and meet the increasing demand for genetic tests to improve disease management.

James White, CEO of Osmetech said, “We are excited to be working with Micron Products. Micron’s customer focus and commitment to quality made for an easy decision in the selection of Micron as our partner for the manufacture of our molecular diagnostic disposables. The OPTI TUBE™ product has recently been launched and has demonstrated excellent performance in comparative studies between the Roche glass capillaries and our plastic tubes.”
