Mechanical Engineering


Mechanical engineering know-how is one of LRE’s major core competencies in its product development portfolio. LRE’s Mechanical Engineers have across-the-board experience in:

  • Design of complex liquid handling systems
    • Pipetting and dispensing of specimens and reagents with fixed probes or disposable tips
    • Level sensing and temperature control
  • Micro-fluidics and microsystems design
  • Design of highly integrated, densely packaged electromechanical products
  • Design for excellence (DFx) - optimized manufacturability, assembly, test, cost, reliability, supply chain, and environment for cost effective and high quality product manufacturing
  • Design for serviceability
  • Mechanisms design including gear, belt, and screw-driven linear and rotary actuators
  • Materials and manufacturing processes selection

LRE’s experience ensures that our IVD instruments are state-of-the-art, reliable and cost effective. The following are services provided and competencies:

  • 3D Modeling with Solid Works and Pro Engineer
  • Finite Element Analysis for structural mechanics, vibration, fluids and thermal systems
  • Extensive experience in rapid prototyping with Stereo Lithography, 3D printing, machined parts, rapid tooling, silicon and “other” molding technologies
  • In-house model shop with CNC and 3D printer
  • Injection molding and sheet metal design
  • In-house functional model and prototype capabilities
  • FMEA and FMCA
  • Reliability testing to ensure infallibility of all components
