World Heart Day
29th September each year is known as World Heart Day. A day to celebrate one of the most important organs in the human body, and promote the importance of looking after your heart with a healthy lifestyle.
It is important because Cardiovascular disease (CVD) continues to be the leading cause of death and disability in the world today: over 17.5 million people die from cardiovascular disease every year1.
Disease diagnosis for such conditions is crucial and at BBI we have been supplying the global diagnostics industry as a supplier and manufacturer of raw materials and finished test platforms to determine cardiac conditions for over 50 years.
Our mission is to create a world where everyone has the opportunity for a better quality of life. Through our experts in innovation we have been shaping the future of lateral flow technology for over 30 years.
Our latest innovation, MorffiTM, is a proprietary signal enhancement technology that improves the sensitivity of lateral flow immunoassays. Tested on a BNP-32 assay it has proven to provide improvements to the limit of detection, enhancements in assay sensitivity and a faster time-to-result, essential for situations where a quicker diagnosis is critical to patient care.
Aside from our lateral flow development and manufacturing services, we also provide an extensive range of cardiac markers from antibodies, antigens and patient samples. You can access information on these through the links below and request samples:
