In addition to lateral flow assay development, Abingdon Health offers automated lateral flow manufacturing with the capacity to manufacture millions of rapid tests annually. Working with customers across multiple sectors, Abingdon health can tailor manufacturing specific to assay and customer requirements.
A lateral flow assay can enter into routine manufacturing with us either directly following the successful completion of an assay development project or as a result of a successful technical transfer of an existing assay in the market which is being manufactured elsewhere.
Once design freeze is reached following assay development with us or another partner, the selected prototype needs to transfer from Research and Development through to routine manufacturing.
At this point, our technical transfer team, with involvement from key members of our production team, will typically manufacture 3 batches of the product using high-volume automated reel-to-reel machines. This stage is important for validating and verifying the performance of the assay following scale-up.
Once an assay has progressed into routine manufacture we will be firmly focused on helping our customer to meet market goals. Therefore, we work in collaboration with customers to address the following:
Batch sizes and manufacturing forecasts to meet market launch and on-going requirements
Explore and plan packaging and labelling solutions
Establish a timetable of manufacturing deliverables
