Leigh Thomas, SVP Director of Global Sales of Abingdon Health, commented:There are many innovative companies working in the lateral flow space who find that in-house manufacturing may be unsuitable or unsustainable for numerous reasons, such as costs, logistics, or time constraints. Outsourcing the manufacturing of these tests can be the strategic solution for many developers, allowing them to focus innovation, rather than the logistics of production. We are happy to discuss our own outsourcing offering further with anyone interested in learning more.”
