Customisable OEM Reader solution for lateral flow rapid testing

For companies interested in combining a lateral flow immunoassay with a customised reader, Abingdon Health offers lateral flow reader OEM solutions, based on our CE marked and FDA registered touch-screen reader, ADxLR5®.

Furthermore, ADxLR5® has been developed and designed to offer the user the most up-to-date features required for the analysis of the most complex lateral flow devices.

ADxLR5® has the ability to read up to 4 test lines (plus control line) on single, double or triple strip test cartridge. Thus, offering a time-saving and cost-effective solution to quantitative lateral flow assay development.

Clients can also choose from a range of customisation options in order to provide the most suitable design, workflow and software set-up for their assay.

Whether there is a requirement for the reader to read single or multiplexed assays. ADxLR5’s intuitive user interface combined with state-of-the-art reading optics ensures a simple step-by-step operating and reading process that requires minimal training.

Reader OEM process

Lateral flow reader OEM process

It is important the customisation of ADxLR5® complements a lateral flow assay. Abingdon Health’s reader and assay development teams work closely with our clients to outline the necessary requirements concerning assay format, quantification, connectivity, user workflow, functionality, reading parameters and any regulatory requirements.

Discover the technology used by Abingdon health during Lateral Flow Reader OEMIn addition, from these discussions, a reader customisation project plan will be formulated. The project plan will set objectives and timelines for taking reader customisation through feasibility, optimisation and validation. Thus, ensuring assay compatibility and market suitability.
