New product development 2020

The QuickCard™ is a uniquely adaptable testing platform, that provides the equivalent of a lab in a credit card sized device for a wide variety of applications.

With the emergence of Cov19, Bio-Diagnostics in February 2020, began work on utilising its knowledge of this unique proprietary diagnostic platform and with a culmination of new adaptations developed the patented BioCard™. This unique device has been developed to eliminate a number of shortcomings inherent to the original QuickCard platform and design.

With an established supply chain predominantly sourced from within the UK, the BioCard™ is created entirely from raw materials within Bio-Diagnostics facility. This novel IVD which introduces structural innovations in combination with adaptable biochemistries for more accurate and reliable results forms a robust device and minimises risks of biohazardous contamination after use.

Virtually every disease has the potential to be tested for, utilising the BioCard™ technology, with results in minutes, anywhere, without need for power, closed system instruments or additional equipment. With established methods to test either sera or whole blood, sampling is possible utilising home test packs, containing only a lancet and small vial, then returned in the appropriate postal envelopes. The device has the potential to be used anywhere in the world, where a viable antibody/antigen or similar binding process occurs.

Processing of the test can be completed quickly in any setting, from a professional laboratory to a pop-up mobile clinic or drive through. Home testing is viable with finger prick blood use, or simply return of small blood sample to a testing site.

Reporting can be completed via any traditional channel, including digital means if required.

International Development Opportunities

Bio-Diagnostics has already developed via contract R&D, diagnostic solutions for specific target interactions and those products are now commercialised for global sales generating millions of dollars. Bio-Diagnostics continues to work with third parties who wish to access the technology and embark on new applications for their own goals. Bio-Diagnostics makes this potential available and a reality.

For wider international markets in the USA, Asia, Middle East, and Europe the company is focused on a B2B development path, looking for technically competent and established partners to represent applications of Bio-diagnostics products and technologies, or provide access via licensing and other arrangements.

Redevelopment of the facility began in 2019, its facility is being custom built to carry out projects through from its inception to delivery. Bio-Diagnostics manufactures and processes products for well-known brands who rely upon it to consistently maintain their exacting standards without exception.
