Through our CEO, Dr Robert Porter, we have expertise dating back to the origins of lateral flow devices and IVD (in vitro diagnostics) in the mid-1980s. Rob was a member of the team that developed the first home pregnancy test.

Rob is highly regarded for his expertise and relentless drive towards developing new and better diagnostic technologies, as well as accelerating the expansion of their practical applications.
