IVD Assay Development & Contract Manufacturing Services

Future Diagnostics Solutions offers in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assay development and contract manufacturing services to start-up companies, mid-sized biotech and IVD multinationals within the global IVD medical device market. With more than 20 years of experience, 150 IVD product developments and over 50 highly experienced employees, we are dedicated to make any developments, or different phases within the development, successful.

The profound experience makes us a trusted partner for assay development of any type of immuno assay or chemistry test with any type of technology, on any type of analyzer, across any type of disease area.

In general, development and manufacturing in IVD faces challenges resulting from:

• Globalization of operations and supply chains
• Pressure to deliver products to the most cost-effective manner possible
• The need to bring new concepts to market at an ever-faster pace
• Increasing customer expectations for superior quality

These challenges support the need for high level quality management. Future Diagnostics is ISO 13485 certified and integrates its Quality Management System and Design Control Standards within every assay development and manufacturing project. We work according to the needed harmonized standards, EN 13612:2002, EN ISO 23640:2015 and applicable CLSI guidelines.

Future Diagnostics has small to medium scale pilot and commercial production capabilities conform the cGMP requirements for 21 CFR part 820. The manufacturing site is FDA registered (FDA inspections in 2004, 2008, 2011 and 2016).

The customer will be involved during the whole project and will have calls with our experts on a regular basis. They will be updated on technical status, timelines and feedback is given, when needed. In addition, the customer can follow the progress of the project in real time on our SharePoint platform. They can log in onto the secured SharePoint system to review all data that has been produced.

For IVD registration of a product a technical file needs to be set up in compliance with the medical device regulation from a specific country. Future Diagnostics will write a part of the technical file that is needed for the legal registration. The customer will be the legal owner and legal manufacturer of the product. The product will only show the name of customer.
