Forsite Diagnostics Ltd.

High quality diagnostic testing and manufacturing

UK based Forsite Diagnostics will be at MEDICA 2010 – the largest medical trade fair in the world – to raise the profile of contract manufacture services for lateral flow assays; a bespoke service designed specifically for global medical device companies.

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 – a product 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.

“If you are attending Medica, please feel free to visit us at any time during the event to talk to us about how this reader and how our production can bring new dimensions to your assays.”

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