The former sector is dominated by several large multinational organisations which provide automated analysers with high sample throughputs and comprehensive analyte menus to service the busy hospital laboratory or clinic.
Axis-Shield has partnered with several of these companies to provide its proprietary assays for these platforms. The company has extensive experience with the wide range of different technologies employed by these automated systems and has undertaken both contract development and manufacturing for non-proprietary, esoteric and other menu-filling assays as well as tests for proprietary markers such as homocysteine and anti-CCP.
Axis-Shield welcomes enquiries from companies requiring such services. Abbott Diagnostics is a close partner and Axis-Shield has a special contract to produce its own-labelled assays on the AxSYM autoanalyser, one of the most widely placed automated immunoassay platform in the world. Abbott is the exclusive distributor of these products and further information on this range of assays can be found under AxSYM xtra.
We are able to develop and manufacture kits for the automated platforms which dominate the laboratory diagnostics sector in a timely and efficient manner, operating to the highest standards and latest, fully audited quality systems. In undertaking such projects, either with our own proprietary assays or for commodity or esoteric markers, we have worked with the majority of multinational diagnostic organisations. In the interest of confidentiality which normally apply for OEM contracts, we are not able to list partner companies, and specific contracts, but as a plc many of our agreements were subject to LSE/OSE announcement, and these can be viewed in the news archive section of this website.
