Four tips to mitigate the risk of single source IVD assay manufacturing

How secure is your assay manufacturing? Manufacturing in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assays in-house, or outsourcing to a single contract manufacturer, should result in the seamless integration of technology transfer, pilot batch production, validation and verification, regulatory submission and subsequently efficient large-scale output. After all, if all those processes are managed in one place the surely there is tighter control? But

How lyophilised reagent beads increase assay accuracy and speed to result

What are lyophilised reagent beads? Lyophilised reagent beads are durable spheres of freeze-dried material formed from accurately measured dispense volumes of customisable formulation. These single-dose beads – like lyophilised cakes – retain long-term stability at ambient temperature and therefore do not need expensive cold chain shipping or refrigeration during storage. This significantly increases the accessibility of diagnostic testing for difficult-to-reach
