Q-SENS Platform

An Enabling Technology for a Range of Applications

Our platform utilizes a novel, disruptive bio-detection technology using silicon biochips with embedded waveguides. Laser light injected into nano-scale waveguides produces detection that occurs at the intersection of two perpendicular sets of waveguides emitting the wavelength-shifted fluorescence and enabling the interrogation of specific sensing areas for the detection of up to 32 targets (i.e., biomarkers).  

The Q-SENS Point-of-Need solution offers:‚Äč

Performance

Sensitivity and specificity equal or better than central lab analyzers

Multiplexing

Testing several biomarkers simultaneously in up to 32 sesnsing-wells

Portability

Small instrument footprint allows placement at the Point-of-Need

Small Sample (<10ul)

Detection in a blood drop or other small fluid sample and low reagent burden (~20ng Ab/test)

Kinetics Monitoring

Real-time kinetics measure binding events as they occur

Simple

Minimally invasive, no filtering or washing steps, enabling self-testing by untrained individuals

Quick Results

Detection in 5-10 minutes

Low Target Costs

Highly affordable instrument (<$500) and consumables (<$5) 

Results are instantly uploaded to a cloud server, allowing AI and ML algorithms to deliver increasingly nuanced and personalized insights.

Our platform, protected by 20 patents, has demonstrated exceptional performance on ~50 different assays (immunoassays and molecular) and is ready to be commercialized. We are working along with our dedicated partners to bring our solutions to the market.
