Quick and accurate
point of care diagnostics

We are developing a small, automated diagnostic device for quick and accurate detection of infectious diseases directly at the point of care.
Our technology is universally applicable for all pathogens, enables multiplex testing and is developed through state of the art bio and nanotechnology.  

With an innovative amplification and super sensitive detection method of DNA/RNA, we minimize the risk of false-negative and false-positive results, 
enabling easy diagnostics for optimal treatment to prevent the spread of infections and antibiotic resistance.
