Collaboration to scale-up manufacture of nanoparticles for coronavirus diagnostic tests

As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses in countries around the globe, there is an urgent need for rapid and reliable point-of-need detection testing. Dolomite Microfluidics and Mologic are working together to accelerate the development and launch of these tests.

UK-based company Mologic is a leading developer of rapid response diagnostic tests for diseases such as malaria and Ebola virus disease. Clients include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, where Mologic is leveraging its core technology through its Centre for Advanced Rapid Diagnostics (CARD) to develop the next generation of ultrasensitive point-of-care diagnostics which are easy to use and inexpensive to manufacture – critical to the success of many global health programmes. Most recently, Mologic has received UK government funding to develop and manufacture a high-sensitivity test for COVID-19 that generates results within minutes – rather than hours or days – without the need for a laboratory or specialist equipment. 

The technology behind these tests involves the use of precisely manufactured nanoparticles. Dolomite specialises in equipment that allows the development and scale-up of precision nanoparticles. This is achieved by using microfluidic technology to retain advanced control of production conditions. Dolomite is working with Mologic to combine ground-breaking diagnostic technology with continuous flow microfluidic manufacturing processes to accelerate the validation and release of Mologic’s COVID-19 diagnostic test.
