As the coronavirus pandemic wreaks havoc around the world, one small company in Irvine is doing their part in the highly specialized area of diagnostic test manufacturing equipment. Unlike equipment used for making face masks and other personal protection products that are in short supply, diagnostic test manufacturing processes can be quite complex and require strict regulatory compliance.

For over 26 years, BioDot, Irvine CA has produced low volume liquid handling equipment for precious reagents like DNA and antibodies used in diagnostic testing devices. BioDot's technologies and systems stand behind some of the biggest names in rapid diagnostic tests today.

Why are Rapid Tests Important?

Rapid tests supply our frontline caregivers a needed tool in fighting the coronavirus outbreak. Simple tests taking less than 15 minutes, performed at the patient's bedside, confirming if a patient has COVID-19 allows doctors to make informed care decisions. Some of these test formats are immunochromatographic assays more commonly known as lateral flow tests. An over the counter pregnancy test is a common example of this format.

These immunoassays are used to identify whether people have been exposed to the virus by looking for an immune response. Only a few of these tests have been approved for use by governments around the world but many more are in the process of being reviewed. Demand for SARS-CoV-2 lateral flow tests is growing daily and expected to increase throughout the coming months.

How is BioDot Helping?

BioDot has been able to respond to the growing rapid test demand with products for lateral flow test manufacturing as well as other formats. "Our team is very proud of the contribution that our products are making in this global healthcare fight. We have been working closely with test developers to quickly bring on increased manufacturing capabilities," comments Kelly Tisone, VP Marketing. "During this critical period BioDot has been able to continue operations and is dedicated to meet the growing demand."

BioDot manufactures all of its products at their headquarters in Irvine. In addition, sales and service offices are located in the UK and China.
