ReadyGo Diagnostics Ltd. (ReadyGo™), an innovator in diagnostic technology solutions, is excited to announce a strategic manufacturing partnership with Porex, a global leader in custom-engineered porous polymer solutions. This collaboration marks a significant step toward the commercial availability of ReadyGo’s cutting-edge Sampler, designed to revolutionize sample collection and preparation for a wide array of diagnostics, including lateral flow, molecular, and biochemical testing.

Key Partnership Highlights:

Manufacturing Excellence: Porex will leverage its ISO 13485 manufacturing capabilities to produce and distribute the ReadyGo Sampler, aligning with ReadyGo’s vision to offer the product globally. This partnership underscores our commitment to meeting the high demand and competitive pricing necessary in the diagnostic landscape to make the Sampler available across diverse diagnostics markets.

Innovative Design: The Sampler distinguishes itself through its user-friendly design, providing a streamlined alternative to traditional swab-based sample collection protocols. It integrates sample collection and processing into a single disposable, compatible with various assay types such as lateral flow, molecular, immunoassays, and biochemical assays.

Precision and Efficiency: Engineered for consistency, Porex® collection media in the Sampler enables precise sample volumes, ensuring reproducible results across tests. Its incorporation of materials and chemistries makes it a biochemistry disposable. For example, inclusion of ReadyGo’s biosafe chemistry allows for instant cell lysing as sample is automatically taken up by the Sampler. This further exemplifies ReadyGo’s dedication to advancing diagnostic testing through clever design and materials.

Versatile Application: Designed for both consumer and professional testing, the Sampler is adaptable for a wide range of sample types including saliva, buccal, blood, and urine. Its versatility extends to applications in human and veterinary diagnostics, forensics, and drug testing.

Through this partnership, ReadyGo and Porex are set to enhance diagnostic testing accessibility and efficiency, reinforcing a joint mission to support healthcare professionals, diagnostic companies, and consumers worldwide.
