Abingdon Health announces exciting new partnership with Morrama!


It’s been a major period of growth for Abingdon Health as it has strengthened its capabilities over the past couple of years. First in its pivotal role in the COVID-19 pandemic which saw the rapid scale-up of Abingdon’s capabilities in developing and manufacturing lateral flow tests. Then, in the summer of 2022 Abingdon Health launched a new venture Abingdon Simply Test – an online one-stop shop for rapid home self-tests for the general public.

Building on its recent successes in lateral flow testing, Abingdon has announced a new partnership with Morrama, a leading UK based B-Corp product design consultancy. Abingdon and Morrama will be working together to develop plastic-free lateral flow housings.

Morrama has a strong track record in designing plastic free, sustainable products including Wild Deodorant’s refill cases. Abingdon Health and Morrama intend to make their first plastic-free compostable cassette available to customers in the next year, with both partners investing in a new company Eco-Flo Innovations Ltd dedicated to developing environmentally friendly design solutions for the lateral flow market.

The brand-new plastic free cassette will use renewable plant fibre moulding technology, which reduces CO2 emissions by 80% less than its single-use plastic equivalents. The designs are intended to be as accessible as possible, with the new eco-design acting as a direct swap from the traditional plastic cassettes. This makes it a seamless transition for companies looking to reduce plastic use across their test kits.

Chris Yates, CEO of Abingdon Health plc, said “We are delighted to be partnering with Morrama to support the development of innovative, environmentally friendlier components and packing solutions for the lateral flow industry. Alongside Jo and the team at Morrama, we are keen to lead this change and provide our customers with viable sustainable alternatives to the traditional materials currently used.”

Abingdon Health has had a huge impact on the global lateral flow test market. It’s great to see our occupiers innovating and adapting products and services to create a more sustainable future.
