BJS Biotechnologies Ltd

Fast MDx Limited is a new division of BJS Biotechnologies Ltd and staffed with a team of dedicated, multi-disciplinary professionals, who previously designed and built the innovative xxpress NGx qPCR thermal cycler used in life science laboratories around the World for research and development purposes in both government and non-government research institutes.

Building on experience

Fast COVID-19™ incorporates the same innovative Resistive Heating Technology used in xxpress NGx and applies this proven ultra-fast qPCR technique to Molecular Diagnostic testing.


Molecular Diagnostics must be both accurate and specific, giving confidence in the reported result. To date, standard MDx tests have been accurate and reliable but slow and expensive.

Fast COVID-19™ meets all four requirements giving fast, highly accurate results at drastically lower cost by using the low cost 96 well SBS format xxplate™.


Fast COVID-19™ is a mobile platform that can be easily relocated from its normal laboratory location to provide error-free, fully automated, sample-in-results-out, Near-Patient testing with minimal technician interaction.

“Accurate COVID-19 testing on a mobile platform is exactly what the NHS needs urgently to get the UK through the pandemic and Fast MDx is the solution.”

Prof Jo Martin, President of the Royal College of Pathologists
