Why partner with a contract manufacturer?

  Developing a new assay that will ultimately find commercial success is notoriously complex. To that effect, managing your manufacturing processes in-house may initially appear to be the most streamlined and snag-free route to market. After all, what could benefit your production cycle more than having everything under one roof, ready for immediate analysis, testing and shipping? In reality, overseeing

How lyophilised reagent beads can reduce waste

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

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

Selecting the right contract manufacturer for in vitro diagnostic assays: your 12-point checklist

Increased throughput, improved efficiency, reduced risk There are many reasons you might consider a new assay manufacturing partner. You may need to ramp up production quickly to meet increasing demand, or you could be looking to reduce production costs. Perhaps you want to mitigate the risk of a single source of supply, or perhaps an issue with an incumbent supplier

New Whitepaper – Benefits of lyophilised beads for stabilising in vitro (IVD) diagnostic assays

Our scientific and marketing teams have just completed the finishing touches on our latest whitepaper which outlines the principle benefits of using lyophilised reagent beads to stabilise in vitro diagnostic assays. The 24 Page document explains how the single dose nature of a bead delivers benefits in dosage consistency, speed of reconstitution and reduced risk of contamination and wastage, as

How are lyophilised beads manufactured?

  Lyophilised reagent beads are durable spheres of freeze-dried material formed from accurately measured and dispensed volumes of customisable formulation. These single-dose beads – like all lyophilised material – 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 patients, facilitating

How lyophilised beads are revolutionising point of care testing

Point of Care Testing delivers the accuracy of laboratory testing without the wait Speed is critical when diagnosing. Clinicians must treat or manage the issue quickly and effectively. This urgency is particularly vital in cases of viral infection. Will the patient need to go to hospital and, if so, do they need to be treated in an isolation ward? Should
