Gelassette: A Breakthrough in Lateral Flow Assays Towards a Sustainable Future

Explore the latest update on Gelassette, the groundbreaking universal biodegradable lateral flow assay housing developed by Okos Diagnostics. It is the world's first universal biodegradable lateral flow assay housing invented by Okos Diagnostics. After filing two worldwide patent applications last year, Okos is currently exploring the mass production capabilities of Gelassette. In this trial, we are feeding our bio-based material into injection molding machines. This is a crucial step to transform the LFA testing market, Gelassette aims to combat plastic pollution while making healthcare more sustainable and accessible.

Gelassette - A Game-Changer in Lateral Flow Assays

Addressing Plastic Pollution in LFA Testing

Lateral flow assays (LFAs) are essential diagnostic tools, but the predominant use of plastic housings has contributed to the global plastic pollution crisis. Okos Diagnostics, however, presents an innovative solution. Unlike traditional plastic housings that can take centuries to decompose, Gelassette is made from a bio-based material that biodegrades within months, leaving no harmful waste behind.
