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.


If you’re looking for expert assistance in any area of lateral flow and other forms of rapid IVD R&D, contact us at RAPIvD. Let’s see if we can help.

Quick Chat?

A 5-minute online meeting could be all it takes to see if we can deliver your idea, concept or existing lateral flow product to the next level.

Tell us what you are trying to detect or measure and we'll tell you if we can provide a solution.

It is completely free of charge and there are no obligations (or pressure from us) to advance the research project.

Drop us a message

- and we'll set up a call. 

Highlight: RAPBlog

In our latest blog, Much more than healthcare diagnostics, Richard Wightman asks if the magnetic pull of the healthcare sector is hampering the pace of growth in the lateral flow tech' industry. 


He wonders if labels such as 'medical devices' and 'diagnostics' are preventing other industries from recognising lateral flow technology's versatility for testing, detection and measurement.
