A single diagnostic device consists of a multitude of components. However, the focal point is the technologies that are incorporated into the complete process to create chemistry, bio-chemistry or assay specific readable results. LRE has always been at the forefront of implementing the most advanced detection methods and making them safe, compliant to regulations and operatively user-friendly. The latter is the result of our human-centered design approach, where we combine software and hardware into an intuitively and practically to use device for optimal user experience.
the solutions of today and
The introduction of optical detection to diagnostic/analytic procedures into practice has been
a major advantage in the detection of health status, diseases, and the identification of ingredients
in non-medical environments. LRE has designed generations of optical systems.
The portfolio includes:
- Optical Detection:
From Reflectance, Absorption, Spectrophotometry, through Fluorescence, Luminescence with single photon detection to Imaging
- Eletrochemical detection:
From electrochemical glucose biosensors to electrochemical DNA biosensors
- Separation technologies
- Combined and other
The implementation of target specific reliable methods for single, multiple, multiplex testing is
amongst the core competencies at LRE.
to robotics to the result
Starting with loading of the disposable to the detection process and displaying / transmitting accurate results combines
several technologies, which we engineer and implement reliably and flawlessly.
Software and Connectivity
We realize software architectures and hardware solutions tailored to the requirements to provide
accuracy of measurement results and fulfilling usability criteria.
At LRE, we take care of connectivity to external services and information systems considering data protection and cyber security.
In a diagnostic device, besides detection technology, thermal control is essential for the system performance and stability. In many projects we have realized the right balance between the individual components: maintaining instrument temperature while providing the heat / cooling conditions for the chemistry including fast thermal cycling for amplification of DNA targets

Six Days and running:
Production ramp-up in times of SARS-CoV-2
We never cease to optimize our work and are always trying to come up with a better solution to our clients’ problems.
But sometimes it’s all about timing. Especially during a pandemic crisis that has gripped the whole world.
Our task: Nothing less than scaling up manufacturing lines in record time – due to high demand of Molecular Diagnostics (MDx)
instruments for SARS-CoV-2 based on real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
In only six days our experts in production engineering, production, logistics, supply chain and quality assurance not only came up with a concept and plan for this time-sensitive project. They also realized it with all the high quality and seamless precision LRE is known for.
See, what we can do in six days’ time:
Cost efficient product development:
Handheld device for PoC and IVD scenarios
For decades LRE has partnered up with major corporations in the area of Medical Diagnostics. So, topics like cost and time efficiency come as no surprise to us, when we are asked to develop innovative devices that change the game. Being efficient is pivotal in our line of work.
In the course of this project we realised a handheld device in combination with a fully integrated cartridge system for a high sensitive Immunoassay Platform. We solved the customer’s challenges with a magnet-induced signal amplification and fluorescence detection with high positioning accuracy, high module integration and manageable manufacturing costs.
