About our company
Rapids Solutions Canada is an innovative ground for development of high performance technologies for point-of-care medical diagnostics. We develop solutions for fast, simple and reliable point-of-care tests while addressing the demand for accessible and cost-effective healthcare.
Based in Richmond, Canada, our team brings together professionals with extensive experience in design and development of point-of-care medical devices, from early-stage prototyping and reagent development to implementation of specialized manufacturing and quality control processes. Our cohesive but diverse team speaks more than six languages. We are open to opportunities for collaboration with outside partners to accelerate growth and to deliver innovative products to our clients worldwide.
We strongly believe that quality by design and a solid quality management system coupled with compliance to all applicable standards will contribute to the success of our products.
We are in the process of implementing a robust Quality Management System compliant with ISO 13485:2016 to create a reliable framework for immunoassay development.
Our first-generation product, the RAPIDS™ assay platform, employs a revolutionary design to provide fast and reliable measurement of specific analytes in human whole blood.
All it takes to run a test is a simple transfer of blood or plasma specimen to the RAPIDS™ test cartridge followed by cartridge scanning inside a portable fluorescence reader.
No sample dilution! No liquid reagents!
The utilization of a platform design allows for quick development of new RAPIDS™ tests for a wide range of medical conditions.
Our initial portfolio of RAPIDS™ tests includes biomarkers for congestive heart failure, acute myocardial infarction, kidney failure, pulmonary embolism and preeclampsia.
New products in development include multiplex RAPIDS™ tests for simultaneous measurement of multiple analytes in a single RAPIDS™ test cartridge.
In line with our mission to become a global player in the field of point-of-care testing, Rapids Solutions Canada seeks opportunities for cooperation with partners who share our vision for innovation and technological advancements in the field of clinical diagnostics.
Our philosophy is that the challenges faced by the healthcare providers worldwide can only be solved by bringing together partners with a diverse expertise in biomarker discovery, clinical research, product development, manufacturing and commercialization.
We envision partnership opportunities in the following areas:
RAPIDS® assay platform licencing to facilitate the introduction of novel biomarkers for medical diagnostics.
Distribution partnerships to facilitate the introduction of reliable and cost-effective diagnostic solutions in different parts of the world.
Cooperation in building global manufacturing capabilities to address the unique demands of each market.
A great testament of our commitment to excellence is the company’s successful collaboration with Hebei Tewente Biotechnology (Shijiazhuang, China) for commercializing the first generation of RAPIDS® diagnostic assay products for the Lepzi T-Meter I.
The RAPIDS® product line will be showcased worldwide in 2018 through participation in international trade exhibits and through cooperation with clinical partners.
