The Ambition

Accurate and integrated diagnostic solutions that enable
faster and more efficient healthcare at any point of need.

miDiagnostics aims to bring clinical, blood-based diagnostics to the people who need it the most: the patients. Based around a disruptive silicon-based nanofluidic processor embedded in a low-cost test card, we are building the lab test of the future.

Our Technology

Cameras and chip processors built in our smartphones currently exist of billions of transistors. We apply the power of massive parallelization and miniaturization to microfluidics: many fluidic handling steps occur in parallel at a very small scale resulting in very fast turnaround times.

A key strength of semiconductor technologies is the diversity of nanofluidic processors that can be produced on a single manufacturing platform. This level of mass customization is still unprecedented in high-volume manufacturing industries. We have designed various nanofluidic processors that fit on the same platform for applications in cytology, molecular diagnostics, clinical chemistry and immunoassays, or a combination of these.

An outstanding characteristic of silicon micromachining is the precise control of features at the sub-micron level. We take advantage of this property to create disposable test cards that have the quality and accuracy of lab-based tests.

Our Products

We are developing three nanoFluidic Processors to measure and quantify cells, nucleic acids, proteins and small molecules

They form the basis for a variety of test cards, addressing specific medical conditions or use cases, such as early screening and treatment of infectious diseases (eg. HPV, GBS, and HIV/HCV/HBV), rapid diagnosis of acute diseases (eg. viral versus bacterial infection, meningitis, and upper and lower respiratory tract infection), and (home) monitoring of patients (eg. HIV treatment efficacy, organ transplant CMV infection, and chemotherapy monitoring).
