TARRC/Rubber Consultants @ Medtec Europe 2016, Stuttgart, Germany 12th-14th April 2016

TARRC/Rubber Consultants exhibited for the first time at Medtec Europe 2016 at Messe Stuttgart, Germany from 12th-14th April 2016.

Medtec Europe, entering its 15th year, is the main european show for the medical device manufacturing and supply industry.

TARRC/Rubber Consultants promoted our consultancy services to the medical devices industry as well as showcasing the Latex-T test kit, a testing kit for detection of allergenic proteins in latex products. The test is rapid and simple and can be performed without specialized lab skills. The Latex-T test kit does not require any lab-based instruments, thus allowing on-site monitoring of latex allergens at ambient temperature.

Dr Alessandra Di Cola said, 'Taking part in Medtec Europe 2016 was personally a great eye opener to the latest technology in the healthcare industry and medical research. Many people enquired about a diagnostic test kit able to monitor latex allergy in patients, as to date the method used is still invasive and not always accurate. Contact was made with representatives from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) for possible support in clinical validation of our Latex-T test kit and for the development of a new test forthe diagnosis of latex allergy in people.'
