Diagnostics Kits & Reagents

Bio-Diagnostics offer the complete range of assays including IFA, ELISA and QuickCard solutions, together with automation packages to meet the ever-increasing demands on the Immunology Laboratory. Due to the wealth of experience gained over the last 35 years we are able to offer up-to-date customer support, seminars and workshops. This extensive range combined with our experience and a high level of technical expertise, makes us quite unique as remaining a UK based autoimmune specialist. Having our own private laboratory means we are participants of the NEQAS scheme and can perform tests in-house with rapid local analysis.
Autoimmunity encompasses a large spectrum of diseases, some of which require urgent diagnosis, others the differentiation of several autoantibody components. Bio-Diagnostics recognised the potential of this market and was the first company to market a complete range of diagnostic tests to UK immunology laboratories. As the longest established autoimmune company in the UK, we offer the broadest range of specialist autoimmune products available. Our packages are tailored to suit individual customer requirements, and we are always available to discuss any bespoke requirements for specific needs.

We continue to offer free introductory training sessions at our laboratory in the Midlands or at your own site. We are fully committed to maintain the high standard and wealth of skill that exists within the NHS by continuing to share our own knowledge and experience with our customer’s new staff on an ongoing basis. We offer a superior level of friendly customer service and maintain high quality as standard.

Autoimmune IFA, the Gold Standard.

Bio-Diagnostics probably offer the widest array of IFA slides and well formats of any Autoimmune company, with an extensive variety of Special tissues completing the range. Slides are provided individually in packs or in kit form, and all the specialist conjugates, reagents and ancillary items are available to complement the range. We can also manufacture custom slides to suit your specialist requirements.

Renowned for consistent quality and attention to outstanding technical service, today Bio-Diagnostics remains focused on Autoimmunity. Providing the highest quality possible ensures the best value is offered to their customers, and it is this that continues to drive the company forward. The latest choice of automation packages such as the tried and tested range offered by DAS as well as the B-Line developed by Hook and Tucker, complements Bio-Diagnostics’ range of assays. Our extensive experience of IFA automation means our service engineers are able to set up, service and repair automation platforms supplied either by Bio-Diagnostics or third parties, where customers have previously made an outright purchase of a machine.

We understand the importance of choice, from an automation package tailored for your specific requirements, to your preference of tissue combinations, or simply by offering a wide selection of special tissues.

CPA accredited training seminars and workshops can be tailored to your requirements, whether a basic introduction for new staff, or advanced developments in autoimmunity. Our aim is to offer an impartial service by making available a complete IFA range of the best quality products, and to support you with our combined experience.

Immunofluorescence (IFA) requires the provision of tissue substrate microscope slides. These were soon augmented with other substrates presenting new markers, such as HEp-2 and human granulocytes.

Bio-Diagnostics has been a market leader in the field with a high level of technical expertise, offering training, lecturing and seminar programmes, coupled to a sera diagnostic service within our own private facility, as complete back-up for existing laboratories and new facilities being set up, who use our products. Having our own laboratory means we are participants of the NEQAS scheme and can perform tests in-house. We are now the only UK autoimmune company that retains a private laboratory to enable and maintain this expertise and technical support in the UK.

The original focus of the company, supplying ELISA and “Gold Standard” Immunofluorescent Assays (IFA) slides and reagents continues strongly, with the strict focus on the best quality and technical support that our customers have come to expect.

Bio-Diagnostics continues to grow its interests in specialised niche medical markets, particularly autoimmunity, but with additional expertise in infectious disease and specialist Immunohistochemistry products. We are continuing to build on the strong growth in our traditional markets over the last 12 months, and are broadening our ranges further to fulfil our current and future customer needs.

I found Bio-diagnostics more than helpful, replacing all our allergens in a very quick and efficient way, reducing the complexity of ordering and providing an excellent service to us.
