High quality diagnostic testing and manufacturing showcased at MEDICA

11 Nov 2010

Contract manufacture services for lateral flow assays will be showcased at MEDICA this month by York-based  company Forsite Diagnostics.

Forsite is one of the few independent companies in Europe to offer automated manufacture of lateral-flow assays to third parties. The company offers a complete package from assay design to manufacturing including finishing, packing and logistics. All done to the highest ISO9001 and ISO13485 standards.

Its high-specification facilities and state-of-the-art automated equipment allow the company to maintain the highest quality of manufacture, giving them the flexibility for batch sizes to meet the needs of new entrants and established players. 

This flexibility allows the company to deliver production runs from 5000 to 5 million assays with the same quality and consistency.
This is the first time Forsite have showcased at MEDICA and the company is also looking to promote its state-of-the-art lateral flow device (LFD) reader, which will be launched in early 2011.

The instrument complements the assays the company manufactures, giving customers a bespoke route for moving into quantitative products. The reader is portable, can be used in the development of assays as well as by end-users for quantification of assay results and is able to read assays based on latex and colloidal gold. It is currently being beta-tested and will be available for market release in early 2011.

Paul Meakin, Head of Marketing, said: “We offer a complete package for companies who are interested in lateral flow diagnostics, whatever their manufacturing needs and will be at MEDICA to promote this service to companies around the world.

MEDICA will be taking place between the 17 - 20 November 2010 at the Messe Düsseldorf, Germany. Forsite can be found on stand H16 G10 along with other UK exhibitors.
