Radetec Diagnostics is closely working with highly experienced partners, material suppliers and contract manufacturers around the world, to offer outstanding products and services, making difficult applications possible.
Radetec Diagnostics developed a new way to produce highly-fluorescent quantum dots stable in buffers, which can be linked to several biologically-active molecules (e.g. antibodies). These quantum dots have successfully employed in our rapid tests for Sexually Transmitted Infections and COVID-19. Visit our quantum dots page for more information about our technology.
Radetec Diagnostic commercialise reagents and equipment for lateral flow assay development through its website LateralFlows.com. Our quantum dots technology can be licensed to third parties, to be integrated in their products.
