Unique kit enables the fast and easy development of customised sandwich lateral flow assays


SYGNIS AG (Frankfurt: LIO1; ISIN: DE000A1RFM03; Prime Standard) today announced the launch of its Universal Lateral Flow Assay (LFA) kit, the latest addition to its expanding range of lateral flow assay products and services which are being commercialised under the Innova Biosciences brand name. The novel product provides a tool for the easy, quick development of customised sandwich lateral flow assays. This enables researchers to rapidly progress the R&D of their point-of-care (POC) diagnostic tools thereby providing physicians with faster access to POC testing for rapid early detection of disease. The Company has filed a patent application to protect its newly developed product and technology.

The global market for lateral flow assays is growing at 16% per annum and projected to be worth US $ 8.2 billion by 2022. This growth is driven by the rising demand for point-of-care testing and the high prevalence of infectious diseases worldwide. The launch of the Universal LFA kit enables researchers to streamline the R&D of their diagnostic tests, enabling rapid development of POC diagnostic tools for entry into this growing market.

The kit utilises the Company's world leading patented antibody labelling technologies Lightning-Link(R) and InnovaCoat(R) GOLD, and enables customers to create lateral flow assay reagents with only a few minutes of hands-on time, without the need to spray down capture antibodies on the test strip, a labour-intensive process that consumes large amounts of expensive antibody reagent.

The Lightning-Link(R) technology within the Universal LFA kit enables quick and easy labelling of up to three analyte capture antibodies of the customers' choice whilst InnovaCoat(R) GOLD technology is used for covalent conjugation of up to three detection antibodies to ultra-high-quality gold nanoparticles, thereby providing complete flexibility to the customer offering the ability to optimise a personalised lateral flow assay in a few days instead of weeks.

Dr. Nick Gee, CTO at SYGNIS, commented: "The launch of the Universal Lateral Flow Assay kit is a novel addition to SYGNIS' rapidly expanding range of lateral flow assay products and services. This new kit massively simplifies and accelerates assay development in addition to reducing costs, ultimately benefiting anyone that works with lateral flow assays."
