Our Ambition

miDiagnostics wants to bring miniaturized, rapid, easy-to-use, lab-quality tests with built in connectivity direct to the patient and clinican.

To do this, we are working to transform attitudes to diagnostic testing, currently dominated by centralised laboratory testing, and provide accurate and integrated disease analysis, enabling rapid access to lab-quality diagnostic information for everyone, anywhere and anytime.

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 to diagnose specific medical conditions, 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). Our miniaturized, easy-to-use, portable tests deliver lab-quality results directly to patients, clinicians and other non-clinical professionals via their compatible devices within 15 minutes.
