Up to ten different tests can be integrated into a single cartridge with results in less than 5 minutes. Test panels currently in development include respiratory infections, systemic inflammation, healthy aging, drug-resistant UTI, tropical diseases, recurrent myocardial infarction and concussion, many of which use a saliva or urine sample instead of a blood draw — vastly increasing access to high-need, high-complexity testing at home or at Point of Care. The BioMEMS technology features a hybrid biosensor array that can be configured to accept a broad range of antibodies, aptamers, nucleic probes and other affinity agents, able to detect most any biomarker, ranging from a single pathogen to a single protein in most any biofluid. This is disruptive technology that also crushes the cost of manufacturing chip-based diagnostics by producing “blank” cartridges in the millions, and then adding the chemistry for specific diagnostics targets in a secondary operation, exponentially lowering costs. In so doing, BioMEMS vastly increases access to high-performance, high-complexity testing, offering an accurate, affordable testing platform with the potential to displace the current paradigm of collecting samples, transporting to a remote lab, and waiting for results when sophisticated tests are needed. No skill, no lab required. This proprietary, patent-pending, digital testing platform is equally effective in a doctors’ office as it is in an ambulance, a combat zone or a tent hospital in South Sudan. A disruptive technology capable of transforming point-of-care. point-of-need and at home diagnostics.
