Full Test Development Service - from idea to product

SCIENION offers innovative, complete and flexible solutions for assay development and optimization for diagnostics and Life Science research. Our experts specialize in all aspects of successful assay production. The combination of surface functionalization, printing, immobilization, optimization of incubation protocols, detection and data analysis results in high performance multiplex assays that you can rely on.

Partnerships between our scientists and clients facilitate the creation of RUO or IVD tests that meet your needs exactly. The development service is modular and one can choose between different collaboration models. Design of a multiplex test for your needs, starting from scratch or with existing single assays is possible, as well as the transfer of already existing multiplex assays to the SCIENION platform.

Our validated technology and complete liquid handling portfolio, in combination with our scientific knowledge and experience, fulfill your specific needs for high-quality and high performance tests and systems.
