Diagnostics product & technology development

A world-class approach

Brief

Our clients approach us with a wide variety of tough development challenges for our diagnostic technology experts, including:

  • complex control systems, including thermal and microfluidic
  • low-noise sensor development
  • complex optical systems
  • large-scale software development
  • design for high-volume / low-cost manufacture
  • complete system design

We work in close partnership with clients to improve the core measurement performance of instruments, develop complex consumables – with or without integrated electronics – or deliver complete instrument designs. We also design devices with connectivity for the over-the-counter (OTC), point-of-care (POC) and central laboratory markets.

We have more than 50 years’ experience across a wide range of diagnostics sectors, including molecular diagnostics and life sciences, liquid biopsy and haematology, clinical chemistry, immunoassay, microbiology and POC rapid tests. This allows us to tackle the toughest challenges efficiently to produce novel designs for manufacture.

Approach

Our teams of world-class, experienced and innovative engineers combine a broad mix of disciplines to quickly, creatively and efficiently deliver the next level of performance or cost reduction.

Our established and flexible development processes take an idea from concept development through to transfer to manufacturing and product support. We are compliant with, and have a deep practical knowledge of, medical standards including ISO 13485, ISO 60601 and ISO 62304 – delivering confidence in the regulatory status of our developments and ensuring regulatory issues are identified and addressed early in the development process.

Benefit

We specialise in market-leading diagnostic product developments and solving the toughest design challenges in clinical instrument design.

Our track record of innovation ranges from a laboratory-based circulating tumour cell isolation device for a university spin-out to a record-breaking real-time polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) instrument for a clinical molecular diagnostics world leader.

If you’re contemplating a new diagnostics system – or need help with key elements of your existing instrument – we have all the skills and resources under one roof to make your idea a reality and give you vital competitive edge.
