Flow Circuits and Rapid Fluidics Ltd Announce Partnership to Drive Microfluidic Innovation

February 5 2024

  • Flow Circuits simulation platform and Rapid Fluidics prototyping capabilities perfectly complement each other for rapid fluidic system development

  • Combined they empower researchers in diverse markets such as Pharmaceutical & Life Sciences Research, Point of Care Testing and Clinical Diagnostics, and Environment and Industrial Analytics

  • Faster, more reliable results delivered by complementary workflow from design through delivery

San Diego, CA USA and Newcastle upon Tyne UK --- Flow Circuits, developer of the first microfluidic software platform that empowers teams to draw, simulate, automate, and build fluidic systems and Rapid Fluidics Ltd, market leader in microfluidic design and rapid-prototyping services, announced a partnership agreement to facilitate design and development for engineers and scientists seeking faster and more innovative solutions for creating and optimising microfluidic systems. 


Access to a combined software simulation and rapid prototyping workflow significantly improves development timelines and allows for more exploration of innovative solutions.

“Working with the high-quality Flow Circuits simulation software allows our customer base to improve upon our already rapid delivery timelines” says Paul Marshall, CEO of Rapid Fluidics, “And access to their software and experienced team also broadens our own design consultancy capabilities. Even more exciting this partnership may also create an opportunity for additional partnering to develop a microfluidic products and services community to even better serve our combined customer base.” 

Utilising the combined workflow microfluidic designs can be realised through the Flow Circuits software and with a simple click transferred to Rapid Fluidics for rapid 3D printing and delivery.

“Rapid Fluidics is perfectly suited to help us realise our "Design-Test-Build" vision by offering its manufacturing services to the Flow Circuits user base, giving them tools to prototype complex integrated devices in days.” Adds Andrew Krippner, Founder of Flow Circuits, “This partnership will significantly benefit our customers, and our industry as a whole.
