Bioanalytical Quest Sdn. Bhd. is a start-up company developing medical diagnostic devices based on qualitative Lateral Flow Immuno Assays (LFIA) test strip alongside other biochemistry related works. The company has been established under NCIA-MTDC Symbiosis 2011 program and has acquired license for the fundamental development of colloidal gold nanoparticle (which is the crucial element in any test strip immunoassay production) from Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM).
Situated in USM’s main campus compound, technology transfer has been started ever since the lab spaces have successfully acquired. A few collaborations have been initiated with government agencies, local universities and research centres specializing in various fields related to Biotechnology, Bio-industry, Public Health and Food Safety, Disease Monitoring Programme and Water Quality that have the need for LFIA and development of test strip or colloidal gold nano particle for specific purposes.
