Huxley Bertram responded to the scaling up of the UK manufacture of COVID-19 lateral flow tests, with the rapid design, development, and manufacture of the lateral flow diagnostic test assembly system.

Adopting a licensee program model, 20 machines have been manufactured throughout the UK, in conjunction with our partners, with Huxley Bertram providing build documentation, design data, and post-installation support.

Huxley Bertram adapted quickly during the build process supporting in-build design requirements to accommodate the customer’s change in assembly materials.

By applying advanced manufacturing principles and automating the assembly of lateral flow test kits from a labor-intensive process, over 2,000 cassettes can be produced each hour. Vision systems throughout reduce wastage and overall cost of manufacture, with return on investment achieved within 2 months of installation.

Huxley Bertram is not limited to the manufacture of COVID-19 lateral flow test assembly systems.  Our experienced engineers can discuss your concept ideas for development projects for new diagnostic testing cassettes or can provide a turnkey solution.
