Activity description
Terms of availability for SMEs

Coris BioConcept is a middle-sized company (SME) specialized in developing, manufacturing and marketing rapid diagnostic tests.
Since more than fifteen years, Coris BioConcept has developed a broad range of antigen detection tests mainly for enteric, gastric and respiratory diseases. These tests are based on the immunochromatography technology with colloidal gold particles or latex microspheres.
Recently, two new proprietary technologies were launched: Gravity Driven Test (GDT) or V-TesT and Oligochromatography (OC). GDT device is a particular housing reversing to sense of the chromatography and allowing to by-pass the use of dilution buffer. It is particularly suitable for urine testing. OC allows fast detection of amplified nucleic acids and was developed for the detection of neglected infectious disease pathogens.
Coris BioConcept research & development department has been partner in five European FP6 projects, one ERA-Net project and is currently partner in three FP7 research programs (one as coordinator). In two of these projects, we have developed point-of-care tests for serological detection of antigens or antibodies. One of these developments has led to a recent publication (1).
Coris BioConcept also provides services for custom tests development and contract manufacturing.
Coris BioConcept is present in 80 countries in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania.
We are also engaged in a Total Quality Assurance program ISO 9001 & ISO 13485 with all products CE marked.
