Lateral Flow Development – Start to Finish

Lateral flow rapid test development at Abingdon Health typically follows a number of stages with formal reviews at critical points. The same structure is used whether the product development is being performed on behalf of a customer (contract assay development) or it an ‘in-house’ product development. Read More

LFD: a complement to animal vaccine strategies

Vaccines are a critical strategy in disease control and eradication in the food-producing animal health market. However, as most vaccines are essentially weakened versions of the normal virus, one of their limitations is that there can be no way to differentiate vaccinated animals from those that have active disease. One… Read More
