Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9930155A1] A diagnostic test support includes a mesh (1) for supporting a diagnostic test reagent and means (3) for holding the mesh. A diagnostic test device incorporates the support and a diagnostic test reagent. The support is made by providing a sheet of non-adherent material and applying to the sheet a liquid carrier material (7) for a diagnostic test reagent and a mesh (1) for supporting the carrier material. The carrier material (7) is allowed to dry or otherwise solidify and is then removed from the sheet of non-adherent material with the mesh (1) embedded therein, cut to size and mounted in a holder (3).
