Upgrading our facilities for an even more secure supply chain

Our Research & Development Engineering team have moved into their brand new workspace. The purpose-built engineering space and independent office will allow us to better design and deliver improvements to our products and new automations solutions.

The move coincides with an expansion to our Manufacturing space, consisting of a dedicated floor for the robotics assembly line and all other robotics manufacturing operations.

Our Production team’s capabilities have expanded with the implementation of the PlateButler® system. The system rapidly automates plate sealing, improving productivity by 700% and ensuring a reliable quality product.

The reinvestment in our facilities is part of our commitment to providing the best possible diagnostics through a reliable supply chain, coupled with ongoing improvements and innovations.

Flu Season Update

Delayed explosion of cases in Southern Hemisphere highlights need for combined respiratory screening

The 2022 respiratory season has been unpredictable in the Southern hemisphere. Australia and New Zealand are experiencing delayed spikes in influenza cases far in excess of those reported since the beginning of the pandemic.

The Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System (GISRS) reported a total of 7711 laboratory-confirmed influenza cases from 1st January to 26th June 2022. 1

Global Influenza Surveillance and Response System (GISRS) 1

The out-of-season spikes may be the result of ongoing relaxation of COVID-19 countermeasures and changes to care-seeking behaviour, and highlight the importance of influenza screening alongside SARS-CoV-2.

Stay ahead of influenza with combined influenza and SARS-CoV-2 TandemPlex® panels.
