The British In Vitro Diagnostics Association (BIVDA) is the national industry association for companies with major involvement and interest in the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) industry. BIVDA represents both manufacturers and distributors who are active in the UK. It is not just an association of UK diagnostic companies; all IVD companies, irrespective of their national origin, are eligible to become members of BIVDA. 

As well as providing a range of support services for its members, BIVDA pursues a strategy of raising the awareness of the clinical and cost utility of diagnostics in the provision of effective healthcare in the UK. Our Code of Conduct governing members business practice is an integral part of the association.

BIVDA is launching its new website on 23rd May 2018!

As we prepare for this exciting new world, there is something we need you as members to do...

As BIVDA members, you have logins to access the members area. These have previously been allocated as one login per company. Not anymore! In order for you to fully benefit from our new system, we are enabling individual logins for employees within our member companies. Among many benefits, this will let you sign up for working parties and other meetings online.

In readiness for GDPR, you must have an individual login set up by 23rd May in order to access the new members area. When we go live we will be deactivating the general company logins.

Please only sign up with your work email. Personal emails will not be accepted. 
We will be manually validating each registration, so please bear with us!

Please register your new login as soon as possible it only takes a few seconds!
