Rapid free light chain test granted registration in Brazil
Seralite® – FLC is a rapid lateral flow test for the quantitative measurement of kappa (K) and lambda (λ) immunoglobulin free light chains (FLCs) in serum. The format of this rapid test enables a free light chain service to be offered in all clinical laboratories. This enables the provision of FLC results in ~10 minutes rather than days or weeks. With this simple to use, compact, rapid test, clinicians are able to monitor patients in “real time” supporting faster decision making.
This is a key registration for Seralite® – FLC and underpins the regional strategy for Latin America. In conjunction with Seralite® – FLC Serum, Seralite® – FLC LFD Controls and the ADxLR5® Reader System have also been granted registration. Latin America has a population of 606 million people and with a market size of more than US$2.4bn is a key emerging IVD market.
With this registration in Brazil, Seralite® – FLC is now available in 73 countries worldwide. Seralite® – FLC is distributed globally (with the exception of Benelux), by Sebia, the world leader in medical diagnostics for electrophoresis.
Fiona Smith, Sales and Marketing Director, Abingdon Health commented;
“The registration of Seralite® – FLC in Brazil is a milestone registration in South America and supports the global expansion Seralite® – FLC. Our aim is to make free light chain testing available to all clinical laboratories in all areas of the world thus improving patient access to this important diagnostic and monitoring tool for Multiple Myeloma.”
