Re-defining the limits of single batch assay stabilisation

  In response to increasing demand for stabilised molecular diagnostic assays, we have significantly increased our single batch lyophilised reagent bead manufacturing throughput to 300,000 reactions per freeze drying run and are now progressing towards a capacity of 100 million tests per annum. Utilising bespoke high precision automation, four dedicated freeze driers (each with 3.5m2 shelf capacity) housed in a

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
