Lateral Flow Development

Focused on meeting our customers’ needs

Our lateral flow assay development service produces rapid diagnostics systems that enhance end-user experience, deliver accurate results and improve diagnosis turnaround times.

We ensure our meticulous approach and assistance in commercial and regulatory planning, if required, develops rapid testing solutions on time and within budget.

Being a part of your assay’s journey from concept through to a market leading rapid test is what drives us to succeed.

Achieving successful outcomes

Success in the following areas allows us to transfer tests from development into routine manufacture:

  • Defining optimum user protocols and sample preparation for different sample matrices (blood, serum, urine, milk, food, plant material, plus more)
  • Utilising appropriate conjugation techniques and immunoassay formats depending on the target
  • Choosing quality raw materials: antibodies, reagents, nitrocellulose membranes and labels (colloidal gold, carbon, latex, plus others).
  • Securing a commercial and sustainable supply of materials
  • Customization of desktop or Smartphone readers
  • Monitoring and managing all cost implications from development through to market entry

Lateral flow assay development process

We work with global organisations in a variety of industries including:

  • Autoimmune
  • Infectious disease
  • Pharmaceutical and therapy monitoring
  • Animal health
  • Environmental
  • Food testing

Abingdon Health’s assay development utilises the following tried and trusted phases under ISO 13485 and working to GMP.

Concept and planning phase

Assay feasibility and optimisation

  • Evaluation of specifications and materials
  • Assessment of prototypes
  • Optimisation of formulations, reagents and materials
  • Design freeze
  • Pilot batch

Scale-up and transfer to manufacture

  • Validation batches at small, medium and delivery batch scale
  • Manufacturing schedules and processes for transfer to manufacture
