How to translate your innovation to a product


Converting biotech innovation to a diagnostic product necessitates stringent design control measures, compliance with regulations, and make-or-break business decisions.


GMP production provides the design control and regulatory framework to bring an assay to clinical use. With over 150 biomarker projects we bridge the chasm that often exists between research and commercialization.

What is the GMP production service for IVD, RUO, or LDT? 

GMP production service refers to the design, development, production, and commercialization of your novel biomarker findings in order to be used in clinical practice  either as RUO (Research Use Only), IVD (In Vitro Diagnostics), or LDT (Laboratory Developed Test) assay.

It’s surprising for many to learn that even a set of biomarkers with exceptional clinical performance may face numerous hurdles before it can be successfully deployed in a clinical or pharmaceutical setting.

Several crucial elements must be meticulously addressed for a research project to realize its full commercial potential. Compliance with In Vitro Diagnostic Regulations (IVDR),  ISO13485 standards and other local regulations are essential to ensure the quality, safety, and efficacy of the diagnostic product. Strict adherence to Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) can further secure consistent delivery of high-quality products in the market.

By adopting a quality and regulatory centered approach for development and manufacturing you can significantly enhance the commercial viability of your discoveries and contribute to practical improvements in healthcare.
