BBI Solutions (Crumlin, UK) demonstrated how its lateral flow software is making point-of-care testing (POCT) more accurate, efficient and easier to use than ever before at the world’s largest laboratory medicine trade show, American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) exhibition.

BBI Solutions are leading experts in immunoassay development & manufacturing services, offering an extensive portfolio of diagnostic products globally. At the AACC Clinical Lab Expo, BBI’s mobile arm, Novarum, launched a demonstrator app that can read the results of an imitated malaria test. Novarum is an easy-to-use mobile app enabling rapid POCT, using just a smartphone. Novarum’s technology accurately interprets the results of lateral flow assays while offering test choreography and tracking disease outbreaks, providing clients with a competitive advantage within the diagnostic landscape. At the tradeshow, the company demonstrated how mobile technology can remove complexities from lateral flow testing to enable healthcare professionals or patients to deliver lab quality results in the field.

Novarum’s innovative mobile technology mitigates the risks identified around lateral flow by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA), which establishes quality standards for all laboratory testing to ensure the accuracy, reliability and timeliness of patient test results. The company demonstrated every aspect of its immunoassay development - feasibility and planning, reagent supply and manufacturing, custom antibody development, custom conjugations, lateral flow development and manufacturing, as well as Novarum’s smartphone reader capability which enables immediate, POC diagnosis.

“This is an exciting opportunity to, once again, showcase BBI Solutions’ comprehensive suite of capabilities at the AACC expo. We’re particularly excited to be launching our demo app at the event this year, which enables us to demonstrate every aspect of Novarum’s capability that a potential customer could include in a custom-built app,” said John Hanson, Chief Commercial Officer at BBI Solutions. “We want to help our customers envision what it would be like for the healthcare professional or patient using the test and to highlight how Novarum’s software mitigates the risks identified around lateral flow testing.”
