Recipharm and binx health announce signing of a long-term supply agreement

Recipharm and binx health today announce that they have signed a long-term manufacturing agreement for the supply of single use cartridges for the binx io platform with supply of single use cartridges commencing immediately.

The agreement is the culmination of the partnership between binx health and Recipharm spanning many years and facilitates the bringing to market of what is expected to be a transformational diagnostics platform, providing almost instantaneous results to both patients and clinicians for the diagnosis of chlamydia and gonorrhoea. Recipharm will supply cartridges from the Kings Lynn operation in the United Kingdom.

Commenting on the agreement, Jeff Luber, CEO binx health, said: “I am very pleased we are further consolidating our relationship with Recipharm and look forward to developing this further with additional capacity. The opportunities for the binx io platform are enormous and it is important to us that we have a reliable partner”.

Keyvan Djamarani, CEO of Bespak by Recipharm said: “We are excited to be part of this project and to be supporting the binx io platform. Point of Care (POC) testing is an under-exploited segment which will only grow and Recipharm sees this opportunity as a strategically important entry into this interesting business segment and highly complementary to the Bespak by Recipharm offering”.

Recipharm is a minority investor in binx health.

About binx IO Platform
The platform is the fastest molecular platform in the world that has U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance for chlamydia and gonorrhea testing. It is based on a proprietary detection method that makes it suitable for broad application across infectious diseases. It has a demonstrated ability to rapidly detect complex infectious disease targets from bodily fluids with very high accuracy and consists of an easy-to-use, desktop-sized instrument and single-use cartridge with multiplex capacity of up to 24 targets. Once a patient sample is added to the cartridge and loaded into the io instrument, the process is fully automated, requires no interpretation of data, and is designed to produce a clearly indicated onscreen “detected” or “not detected” result.
