Our contract development capabilities 

At BBI Solutions, our capabilities allow us to take assay development from initial antibody screening through to routine manufacture and beyond.

We have over 25 years’ experience developing qualitative, semi quantitative and quantitative assays using the latest detection technologies including fluorescence, latex, metallic and paramagnetic nanoparticles.

Whether you require the complete outsourced service or just an initial feasibility analysis, we are able to provide customised development packages designed to accommodate any sample matrix, application, budget and requirement level.

The tests we have contract developed are used in a variety of settings including military field use, farms, laboratory and research institutes, hospitals, physician’s offices, and at home.

We are proud to have supported our customers with over 250 lateral flow development projects. Many of these are in routine manufacture across our facilities located in the UK and the USA.

Our flexible turnkey approach 

Depending on the complexity of the assay and your requirements, a typical development programme can run from 12–36 months and will work as follows:

Assay Development Process

Our turnkey approach means you’re not locked in. A dedicated team of scientists work on your product alone and at the end of the development, we hand over the design history file so that you ‘own’ your own test, a service offering unique to BBI.

Post Market Support 

At BBI we also offer post market support beyond assay completion. Customers can benefit from our knowledge in getting assays through the required regulatory stages and into the hands of the consumer. BBI will even take on the full named manufacturer responsibilities and submissions if required.
