Welcome to RAPIvD.
A world-class contract research company operating at the cutting edge of rapid in vitro diagnostics and particularly, lateral flow technology.
Imagine a device that works in a similar way to a pregnancy or covid test. A small, convenient, easy-to-use device that can detect an illness or condition in a matter of minutes. Well, that’s what we develop at RAPIvD – and we’re working with companies and institutions around the world to make these devices a vital part of future medical, occupational and personal healthcare practices.
Through our laboratory facilities in Bedfordshire, UK, our research team continues to push boundaries to improve the range, accuracy and versatility of devices to assist with modern-day medical diagnosis.
We boast research, industrial and commercial expertise dating back to the origins of lateral flow devices and IVD (in vitro diagnostics) in the mid-1980s.
Dr Robert Porter is the CEO and founder of RAPIvD. He was one of the world’s first scientists to work in this area of scientific technology. Rob is highly regarded for his expertise and relentless drive towards developing new and better bio-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 bio-diagnostics R&D, contact us at RAPIvD. Let’s see if we can help.
We've achieved certification for meeting ISO 13485 medical devices standards for ‘contract development and manufacture of lateral flow assays for IVD’.
