Spacer Tapes

ARcare® double-coated spacer tapes are used to create capillary channels in diagnostic and biosensor devices for maintaining accurate sample volume and flow.  Our state-of-the-art manufacturing process, coupled with in-line measurement gauges ensures a tightly controlled overall tape thickness.


  • Reliably controls devices capillary dimensions, thus sample volume.
  • Bonds strongly to a variety of substrates.
  • Non-reactive with biological samples and reagent chemistries.
  • Easily die-cut.
  • Pressure-sensitive and heat-activated chemistries available.
  • A variety of tape thicknesses and adhesive types available.


  • Blood glucose.
  • PT/INR coagulation tests.
  • Cholesterol.
  • Drugs-of-abuse.
