A suite of Ginolis LFDA assembly solutions helps Abingdon Health to produce tens of millions of rapid tests per year. The combination of Abingdon Health’s long-established lateral flow manufacturing expertise and Ginolis LFDA technology enables the company to achieve the company’s mission: To improve life by making rapid results accessible to all.
Global rapid test availability in higher volumes and lower prices
Abingdon Health is a long-established lateral flow test manufacturer, who passionately pursues its mission to improve life by making rapid results accessible to all. With huge, 21st century technological advances in the speeds of online data transfer, modern society has become more and more expectant of immediate access to information.
The company believes that fast access to information should not be limited to the internet. They aim to facilitate much faster access to results in health testing than traditional lab-based testing can deliver. Lateral flow tests are an accessible and very convenient way for Abingdon Health to enable these rapid results.
To put it simply, more convenient access to health testing and faster results will ultimately help save more lives. Investing in knowledgeable employees and state-of-the-art equipment enables the company to maintain the quality production of lateral flow devices and manufacture in much higher volumes and lower prices, ensuring their tests are globally available to everyone.
Reliable, long-term partnership with Ginolis
“Ginolis are a well-established, international supplier of lateral flow tests assembly machinery, who, like us, have seen large increases in demand for their goods over the last 18 months,” says Oliver Gardner, the Chief Operating Officer of Abingdon Health. “Before the COVID-19 outbreak, Abingdon Health was already a Ginolis customer, and indeed we have owned the second LFDA machine that came off the Ginolis production line for a number of years. Therefore, this technology is proven to us, so Ginolis was the obvious choice for us to partner with, as we looked to increase our automated assemble capacity. Abingdon Health and Ginolis have a great relationship, and this has been strengthened during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
Reproducible quality is vital for manufacturing accurate lateral flow tests. According to Abingdon Health, Ginolis certainly facilitates this to a large extent. The Ginolis LFDA system is flexible enough to work with the lateral flow test specifications of the company’s clients, enabling them to load multiple different tests onto the machines. This allows the company to offer flexible lateral flow manufacturing solutions in vastly increased volumes and at lower prices as part of their automated services.
Abingdon Health now has a suite of LFDA systems across our facilities, which helps the company produce tens of millions of rapid tests per year.
“The LFDA technology alongside our long-established lateral flow manufacturing know-how is a great combination and enables us to work with many new customers on a whole array of different lateral flow tests,” says Oliver Gardner. “This ultimately helps us achieve our mission: To improve life by making rapid results accessible to all.”
