    Web Industries Opens New Lateral Flow Immunoassay (LFI) Manufacturing Facility
    Leading medical CMO to provide high-precision, high-volume automated production of LFI devices

    MARLBOROUGH, MA. – Web Industries, Inc., innovative provider of precision contract manufacturing and converting services, is proud to announce the opening of the company’s first lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) production facility. Co-located within the company’s existing Web Boston location, the Lateral Flow Diagnostics Center of Excellence will provide companies marketing LFI tests with a one-stop outsource manufacturing solution that offers a reliable path from small-scale test development to high-volume commercialization of new LFI devices. The 6,500 square foot environmentally-controlled facility was
    purpose-built for automated reel-to-reel medical device production and features an in-house biochemistry
    lab, reagent deposition, LFI strip manufacturing, device assembly, and packaging stations.

    With the opening of this facility, Web Industries becomes the only US-based non-competing medical CMO to offer automated reel-to-reel LFI strip manufacturing, device assembly, and packaging services at commercial-scale volumes (>10MM). This allows Web to leverage its precision flexible material converting and multi-layer device manufacturing expertise and give companies marketing LFI devices a trusted contract manufacturing solution when bringing new tests to market.

    LFI devices are rapid diagnostic tests that typically provide results in less than 15 minutes, often without processing at a centralized lab. Home pregnancy tests are a very common example of an LFI device. Historically used for point-of-care medical testing, the demand for LFI tests is increasing as the technology
    is adopted by other life science, environmental safety, veterinary, and food and beverage industries.

    “We’re excited to bring these unique production capabilities and capacities to the LFI device market,”
    said Mark Pihl, President and COO of Web Industries. “Recent medical and environmental issues have demonstrated the strong need for easily deployable rapid tests, and our company’s long history of success
    in the IVD test, diagnostic strip, and medical consumable markets position us as the manufacturing partner LFI marketers can rely on to help safeguard personal and public health.”

    Web Boston is the company’s Center of Excellence for Medical Manufacturing and specializes in medical-grade material converting, device assembly, and the production of diagnostic tests. The company has manufactured many long-running, high-volume clinical diagnostic and personal health monitoring product programs that have been responsible for more than 100 billion medical tests over the past two decades, and the new LFI facility will create additional high-tech manufacturing jobs in the region.

  • MARLBOROUGH, MA. – Web Industries, Inc., innovative provider of contract life sciences manufacturing and converting services, is proud to announce that the company has been awarded $150,000 in tax incentives through the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center’s (MLSC) Job Creation Tax Incentive Program. This program promotes the growth of companies engaged in advancing life sciences research, commercialization, and manufacturing throughout the state of Massachusetts through targeted tax incentives tied to new job creation.


    Web Industries recently opened their Lateral Flow Diagnostics Center of Excellence in Holliston, Massachusetts. The purpose-built, environmentally-controlled facility was designed for large scale automated reel-to-reel medical device production and features an in-house biochemistry lab, reagent deposition, lateral flow immunoassay (LFI) strip manufacturing, device assembly, and packaging stations.


    This advanced facility offers companies developing LFI tests a one-stop outsource manufacturing solution to take new devices from small-scale test development into high-volume commercial-scale production. Web Industries is the only US-based non-competing contract manufacturing organization (CMO) to offer these services at commercial-scale volumes to ranges of over 10MM devices annually.


    “Massachusetts companies lead in developing the next new innovative technologies and services, with Web Industries becoming the only US based life sciences manufacturer of its kind bringing LFI devices from testing to commercialization," said Governor Charlie Baker. "We are proud to support their expansion and contributions to our life sciences ecosystem through the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center’s Job Creation Tax Incentive Program.”


    “Web Industries’ expansion in Holliston is further evidence that Massachusetts can support the needs of life sciences companies through the entire health technology life cycle, including manufacturing,” said Travis McCready, President & CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center. “They are part of a strong and growing network of life sciences contract manufacturing organizations, mostly located in regions of Massachusetts outside of Greater Boston, that are playing a vital role in bringing new health technologies to market. We are proud to be supporting Web Industries’ growth.”

    “Our company is honored to receive this recognition by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and
    the MLSC,” said Mark Pihl, President and COO of Web Industries. “As a company founded in Boston
    and headquartered now in Marlborough, this is a great validation of our investment in bringing Web’s
    unique LFI production capabilities and capacities to this area.”


    The Job Creation Tax Incentive Program was established in 2008 as part of Massachusetts’
    $1 billion Life Sciences Initiative. These incentives are approved annually by the Board of Directors
    of the MLSC.

    sciences innovation, research, development and commercialization. The MLSC is charged with
    implementing a $1 billion, state-funded investment initiative. These investments create jobs and

    information, visit www.masslifesciences.com.


    About the Job Creation Tax Incentive Program
    The Life Sciences Initiative authorizes the MLSC to award tax incentives each year. Applicants are
    generally companies that have transitioned or are transitioning from pure life sciences research and
    development (“R&D”) to commercialization and manufacturing. The MLSC recognizes that many
    companies struggle to address the significant capital investment associated with the long life sciences
    R&D cycle and the high cost of translating research into a commercially viable product. This program is
    designed to help sustain these companies through a critical stage of development and to leverage
    additional sources of capital to bring cutting edge innovation to the marketplace.
