BioAssay Works, L.L.C is focused on antibody-based and antigen-based detection technologies, and on their application in lateral-flow immunoassay for both instrumented and visually-read tests. The company was founded by Stephen Mefferd, Leslie Kirkegaard, and Glen Ford.

BioAssay brings laboratory-based, ELISA-like sensitivity to rapid-format, lateral-flow assays, while maintaining field-use product durability and simplicity. The company offers extensive experience in the development of rapid, point-of-care, lateral-flow-format diagnostic assays. The combination of its proprietary concentrated gold sols and its patented C-FLAT® (Counter Flow Amplified Test) assay platform contributes to significant savings in development time and money, and speeds time-to-market.
