POINT-OF-CARE MOLECULAR DIAGNOSTICS

 

OUR  MISSION

mFluiDx is developing a point-of-care molecular test - the “SIMPLE CHIP”, that is multiples lower cost than existing solutions. It will also be best in class for speed and multi-target panel testing. Successful deployment will allow rapid decentralized immediate screening on-site (small clinics, pharmacies, etc.) and help contain outbreaks, with high sensitivity and specificity similar to PCR.

COMPARISON

 

OUR TECHNOLOGY

  • Low cost: microfluidics technology enables an extremely low-cost consumable cartridge and reader instrument.  

  • Multi-target testing: a single disposable cartridge can detect multiple infectious agents (viral and or bacterial) from a patient in one single test. 

  • Fast: 7~15min turnaround

  • High sensitivity/specificity:  we are using isothermal amplification that has equivalent performance to PCR. 

  • Automated: sample-to-answer including sample prep is fully automated.
