Q-SENS Platform

An Enabling Technology for a Range of Applications

Q-SENS 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:
