Second source lateral flow manufacturing
Meeting demand in the face of potential disruption
In situations such as the COVID-19 pandemic, lateral flow rapid diagnostics are in greater demand to respond to containment activities, widening screening programs and reducing the time to diagnosis. Therefore, it is important for manufacturers to be able to meet this challenge of getting assays to the point of need in a timely fashion. By using a second rapid test manufacturer’s automation and logistics infrastructure, you are able to project your manufacturing capability to a wider footprint while ensuring business continuity and order fulfilment.
Working with you and your existing solution
Abingdon Health is a collaborative partner and is comfortable working alongside existing primary supply solutions to ensure the continuity of supply of rapid tests. With automated and semi-automated manufacturing solutions we are able to ‘fast-track’ technical transfers into routine manufacturing, providing quick and easy short- and long-term solutions.
Working with a second manufacturer boosts output and market share and shouldn’t be dismissed because of perceived disruption. A good manufacturer should be able to manage the transfer process, leaving clients to focus on their strategy. Read our article about switching lateral flow manufacturer to understand how this can be done.
