Alba Diagnostics has a background in research & development and experience in patent applications. The company holds a number of patents; UK, European and Worldwide. The company has a long-standing relationship with their international patent agents and is happy to advise on any patent-related enquiries.
Alba successfully defended their brake fluid tester patent in both the High Court of Scotland and in the House of Lords, their case now being cited in case law from 2004.
The company continues to vigorously defend their patents and maintain its commitment to Scottish design and manufacture. Wherever possible, the company uses local suppliers, helping support the Scottish economy and ensuring lead times are held to a minimum
As a committed product development company, Alba therefore welcomes and uses the HMRC tax credit scheme annually to assist in their development costs. The company is also grateful for the continuing support of Scottish Enterprise both domestically and abroad.
