Coris BioConcept (CORIS)

Innovative solutions for more effective diagnostics

Coris BioConcept is a middle-sized company (SME) specialized in developing, manufacturing and marketing rapid diagnostic tests.
Since more than ten years, Coris BioConcept has developed a broad range of antigen detection tests for enteric, gastric and respiratory diseases. These tests are based on the immunochromatography technology with colloidal gold particles or latex microspheres.

Recently, two new proprietary technologies were launched: Gravity Driven Test (GDT) or V-TesT and Oligochromatography (OC). GDT device is a particular housing reversing to sense of the chromatography and allowing to by-pass the use of dilution buffer. It is particularly suitable for urine testing. OC allows fast detection of amplified nucleic acids and was developed for the detection of neglected infectious disease pathogens.

Coris BioConcept research & development department is always engaged in several projects. The research laboratory is equipped for molecular biology and immuno-assays developments. Coris BioConcept was partner in six European FP6 projects and is currently partner in three FP7 research programs.

Coris BioConcept is growing fast. Started in 1997 with three products, the entire range reaches now more than 25 products, all developed  internally and available in different formats ranging from dipstick to cassettes and with different technologies from immunoassays to RT-PCR and RT-qPCR.

Coris BioConcept also provides services for custom tests development and contract manufacturing.

Coris BioConcept is present in 80 countries in Europe, Asia, South America, Africa and Oceania.
