The company plans large scale production of its disposable cartridges to meet commercial demand ahead of establishing strategic relationships with commercial partners.

Vivacta’s cartridges incorporate an innovative piezofilm sensor. Vivacta’s technology platform enables the development of next-generation point-of-care diagnostics and monitoring systems. The finger-prick tests provide lab-quality measurement of disease markers and drugs in whole-blood in under ten minutes.

To lead the new initiative, Vivacta has appointed Andrew Whittle as Process Engineering Manager. Mr Whittle was Operations Manager and Site Leader at ThermoFisher Scientificprior to his appointment and brings in-depth knowledge of establishing an IVD (in vitro diagnostics) manufacturing cell to Vivacta.
Dr Tim Carter, CEO, said, "The creation of our pilot facility in 2009 gave Vivacta the strategic advantage of being able to develop new tests on consistently manufactured materials and demonstrated to potential commercial partners the scaleability of our process. Now we see the need to establish executable plans for commercial-scale manufacturing and we are delighted that Andrew Whittle has agreed to join us and lead this effort”.

In recognition of her role in achieving ISO 13485:2003 compliance for Vivacta’s existing pilot facility and the importance of her work in quality management, Sonja Jones has been promoted to Director of Quality and Regulatory Affairs.
