Our scientists understand that each assay being developed is unique with specific requirements, therefore, without knowing more about the test in question, only general development deliverables and associated pricing can be provided.
Development of food safety assay using novel nanoparticles
Case Study: Fortune 500 packaging company
The existing standard method of detection for this food safety assay requires multiple days and a skilled scientist to perform the test. Using ultra-sensitive nanoparticle technologies, nanoComposix is developing a rapid lateral flow assay that can identify dangerous bacterial pathogens in less than 10 minutes.
Manufacture of validation lots of full rapid test kits under ISO13485 quality system
Case Study: Non-profit organization developing assays for detection of neglected tropical diseases
Using the gold nanoshells, the non-profit group was able to achieve the desired sensitivity for their assay. The assay was transferred to nanoComposix for transfer to scale-up manufacturing under our ISO13485 compliant quality system. The assays were manufactured (50K strips) for testing in third world countries and are currently being evaluated in the field.
Novel particles used for assay development, helped reach the limit of detection
Case Study: Market leader in veterinary diagnostics
This customer turned to nanoComposix after three years of assay development where assay sensitivity could not be achieved by an internal team or with two separate contract assay development manufactures. The first company spent 6-months optimizing the assay and could not reach the required limit of detection. The second development company used proprietary nanobeads which achieved sensitivity but dried conjugate was unstable after 6 weeks. After a one-month effort, nanoComposix achieved the clinically relevant sensitivity using gold nanoshells.
