Samples are sent to a central lab to
provide a diagnosis after several days.
Our device delivers sample to answer in
5 minutes, allowing treatment at the point of care.
Th concept was demonstrated (left) with a $25 Arduino microcontroller. Despite the low cost, the detection sensitivity is equal to or better than instrumentation thousands of times more expensive currently used in clinical laboratories.
