The Greenest Solution for Lateral Flow Assays

Okos Diagnostics was founded to grow the home testing market, empowering everyone with access to a rapidly increasing range of home tests, without adding to the world’s waste problems. Our cassettes are the world’s only patent-protected universal housing for lateral flow tests.

During the COVID Pandemic, 100 billion plastic tests were thrown away immediately after use. Okos’ bio-based housings can be used for all lateral flow use cases, including pregnancy, sexual infections, and tumor markers, and is easily adoptable by the IVD industry.

By 2050 the weight of plastic in the oceans will be more than the weight of fish. The well-being of humans should not come at the cost of harm to the environment. Let's connect human health and environmental health, now!

For Okos your health means Planet's Health


About Okos

Okos Diagnostics was established with the vision of expanding the home testing market, providing universal access to a continually expanding selection of home tests while addressing global waste concerns.
The initial prototypes were funded through the earnings generated by PrevViral, a prominent Dutch rapid test distributor founded in 2020.
Amidst the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, an astounding 100 billion plastic tests were discarded immediately after use. Okos aims to counter this environmental impact by offering bio-based housing suitable for various lateral flow applications, including pregnancy tests, screening for sexual infections, and detecting tumor markers. The adaptability of Okos' technology makes it readily adoptable by the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry.
