‘s Vyon® Porex’s Vyon® enables ReadyGo Diagnostics to begin mass production of its sample collection and preparation device

ReadyGo Diagnostics Ltd. (ReadyGo™) has recently announced a strategic manufacturing partnership with Porex, a global leader in custom-engineered porous polymer solutions. This partnership will aid in the production and distribution of ReadyGo’s innovative Sampler, designed to revolutionize sample collection and preparation for a wide array of diagnostics including lateral flow, molecular, and biochemical testing.

The partnership between ReadyGo and Porex marks a significant step towards the commercial availability of the Sampler. Porex, with its ISO 13485 manufacturing capabilities, will produce and distribute the Sampler globally, in line with ReadyGo’s vision of making the product available to diverse diagnostics markets. This collaboration highlights the commitment of both companies to meet the high demand and competitive pricing necessary in the diagnostic landscape.

The Sampler stands out for its user-friendly design, providing a streamlined alternative to traditional swab-based sample collection protocols. It integrates sample collection and processing into a single disposable, compatible with various assay types such as lateral flow, molecular, immunoassays, and biochemical assays.

Engineered for consistency, Porex® collection media in the Sampler enables precise sample volumes, ensuring reproducible results across tests. Its incorporation of materials and chemistries makes it a biochemistry disposable. For instance, ReadyGo’s biosafe chemistry allows for instant cell lysing as the sample is automatically taken up by the Sampler. This further exemplifies ReadyGo’s dedication to advancing diagnostic testing through clever design and materials.

The Sampler is designed for both consumer and professional testing, making it adaptable for a wide range of sample types including saliva, buccal, blood, and urine. Its versatile application extends to human and veterinary diagnostics, forensics, and drug testing.

Together, ReadyGo and Porex aim to enhance diagnostic testing accessibility and efficiency, with a shared mission to support healthcare professionals, diagnostic companies, and consumers worldwide.

Richard Walker, Vice President and General Manager of Diagnostics at Porex, expressed his excitement about the partnership, stating, “We are excited to partner with ReadyGo Diagnostics, a step that underlines our commitment to enabling diagnostics companies to push the boundaries of diagnostic testing.
