Diagnostic providers are striving for a faster patient turnaround, improved clinical outcomes, and streamlined healthcare, leading to greater cost efficiency and better 'patient as customer' experiences. Our experts understand the medical diagnostic product development trends, technologies, and challenges that can influence the development process path, such as the shift from lab to Point of Care testing, test specificity and sensitivity, and the constant drive for smaller, cheaper, and more sophisticated technology – including lab-on-a-chip devices.

We employ scientists, engineers, and design thinkers with extensive experience in the design and development of IVD instruments, cartridges, and low-cost diagnostic consumables, and who have specific expertise in manipulation of beads, fabrication of microwells, microwells and imaging, and manipulation of fluids.

We’ve worked with industry leaders and innovative start-ups on thousands of IVD projects with many of the products we have designed achieving a CLIA Waiver from the FDA, winning awards and becoming market-leading products.

Our medical team works with clients at the forefront of their domains and are experts in diagnostic solutions, and we typically work on: 

  • Point of Care diagnostics: microfluidics, consumables, and instrumentation development.
  • Central Laboratory: bringing new technologies to reduce cost, increase sensitivity and increase throughput.
  • Translating research from the laboratory bench to commercially viable products with verification and validation.
  • Translating user requirements into optimised user experiences.
  • Preanalytical steps of sample acquisition and transfer to the point of test.
