Assay development process​

  1. Assay design and development

    • Identification and sourcing of critical raw materials (polyclonal antibodies, monoclonal antibodies, preservatives, solid phase, clinical samples, etc.)

    • Component formulation (coating buffers, blocking reagents, assay diluents, calibrators, controls, wash buffers, conjugates, etc.)

  2. Assay optimization and verification for robust and sustainable manufacturing as in vitro diagnostic products

  3. Assay validation

    • Performance, stability and package insert claims

    • Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) compliant assay validation

  4. Design controlled product development

    • Incoming raw materials and acceptance criteria

    • Process documentation (e.g. batch records, SOPs, work instructions)
