Assay development of the sort manufactured by Abingdon Health supports faster results delivery and decision-making in the field. At Abingdon Health we are proud of the critical role we play in providing access to accurate, high quality diagnostic rapid tests for the UK and Europe.

Our Services

We take lateral flow test projects from initial concept through to routine and high-volume automated manufacturing or work with UK and EU based partners looking to transfer existing tests to a new manufacturing partner to scale up production in response to rapid growth plans. Abingdon Health has also developed AppDx®, a software that transforms a smartphone into a self-sufficient, standalone lateral flow reader.
