Two North American manufacturers of rapid diagnostic tests are combining in order to pool their products for rapid entry into the diagnostic product market and to boost development of new tests.

NOWDiagnostics Inc. (Springdale, AR, USA) recently completed the acquisition of ZBx Corporation (Toronto, Canada). NOWDiagnostics manufactures and sells a line of blood-based rapid tests that allow health care providers to conduct simple-to-use, highly accurate tests for a variety of ailments and diseases. ZBx Corporation, with a customer base that includes Canada, Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and Mexico, develops and manufactures rapid format, point-of-care diagnostic products in both the human and veterinary fields.

“We are excited about the growth of NOWDiagnostics and what this means for point-of-care testing and the healthcare industry in general. Our acquisition of ZBx, with its deep product portfolio, experienced personnel, and broad capabilities, will help us increase the speed at which we are currently developing our tests,” said Kevin Clark, CEO of NOWDiagnostics. “The tests we are creating have the potential to revolutionize current medical test protocols and to lower costs to insurance companies and, ultimately, consumers.”
