SELFCheck is a registered trademark of JR Biomedical Ltd and represents easy to use, high quality in-vitro diagnostic devices for self testing, assembled under a full quality assurance system certified to ISO13485:2016 at our laboratories in St Asaph, North Wales. All our SELFCheck medical tests for self test use are regulated by the In Vitro Diagnostics Directive (IVDD 98/79EC) and CE marked specifically for self test use.
In 2019, the SELFCheck range was comprised of ten different health checks for the diagnosis of a wide range of common medical conditions. A pipeline of new products should see the SELFCheck range double in number through 2020/21 and also the development of a new type of lateral flow rapid test device for use by clinicians for the diagnosis of sepsis.
Key drivers for the UK self testing market include; constraints on NHS budgets, growing awareness of the availability of self test kits, convenient access through pharmacies, supermarkets and online health product retailers, ease of use, familiarity of the general public with lateral flow devices and reliability and acknowledgement of clinicians for the beneficial effects of self testing on early diagnosis and self care.
