Volpi supplies Instrument modules to renowned in vitro diagnostic companies. Applications served include molecular diagnostics and immunodiagnostics for clinical lab and the POC, clinical chemistry tissue diagnostics and hematology.
For the life science tools market, Volpi develops and manufactures optimized modules for applications such as next-generations sequencing, RT-PCR, qPCR, dPCR and immunonassay plate reader.
In addition, spectroscopic applications in flow cytometry and imaging applications in genomics and histology based on automated fluorescence microscopy are served by Volpi.
In medical technology Volpi’s solutions range from LED-based light source modules with fiber optics for endoscopy, microscopy and ophthalmology to lighting solutions for dentistry, photodynamic therapy, and patient monitoring.
From Idea to Product and Beyond - We Take Responsibility
For many years Volpi has been supporting customers throughout the life cycle of their instruments. From conceptualization and product realization to industrialization and manufacturing, Volpi ensures availability of products and Services for decodes.
Extensive know-how and experience in Systems Engineering is combined with in-depth photochemistry Expertise. When married with applications understanding Volpi repeatedly develops best Solutions.
In close cooperation with our client’s application specialists, we find individual solutions that meet all requirements of the application as well as the commercial needs of our Partners.
By means of a structured Stage-Gate development process, employing the V-model in accordance with ISO 13485 when necessary, development risks are minimized, development times optimized and regulatory requirements, including documentation requirements, met.
We apply our optical expertise to mechanical, electronic and software design to realize marketable products and supply them individually tested to our customers.
Transfer from development to prototyping and mass production of optoelectronic modules is handled by specialists. Lean manufacturing methods and Six Sigma principles are applied in serial production as well as in transfer processes. Production is ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified.
Volpi operates cleanrooms for sensitive optical component assembly tasks at both locations. Glass fibers are manufactured at Volpi Corporation in Auburn, USA and sourced fiber are processed into custom-specific fiber optic bundles used for lighting and measurement applications.
Life Cycle Management
Throughout the product’s life cycle – often for more than 15 years in in vitro diagnostics – our service range includes ensuring availability of all components as well as ongoing repair and maintenance of modules from the market.
Volpi ensures compliance with regulatory requirements at all stages of the life cycle.
Quality Assurance & Testing
Volpi’s ISO 13485- and ISO 9001-certified quality management system and committed, highly qualified personnel ensure the consistently high quality of our products.
Product-specific test equipment is developed, built and validated and ensures that perform once of our products an be verified prior to incorporation into our client's instruments.
Reliable Supply Chain
In many cases, Volpi is single-source suppliers of key modules for the instruments of our customers who specialize in the fields of in vitro diagnostics, life science tools and medical technology. The collobration cover all stages from development to production and maintenance of the modules throughout the product life cycle.
Sharp short-term fluctuations in demand can occur repeatedly and are often not reflected in the regular forecasts early enough. We offer our clients a high degree of flexibility. In order to remain able to deliver in these situations, Volpi responds rapidly and appropriately to changing needs and ensures reliable product supply based on real customer demand.
