Digital Microfluidic Platform Being Developed for On-the-Fly Swapping of Biosensors for Diagnostic Use
The University of Toronto is developing a platform that enables swapping of various sensing technologies that could measure different analytes in a range of applications.
The developers are exploring clinical applications with a view to making a platform available in a few years for testing at the point of care and in remote settings.
Talis Biomedical Developing 'SlipChip' Microfluidic POC Platform for Genotypic, Phenotypic Testing
Formerly known as SlipChip Corp, the firm has recently won nearly $10 million in funding to hone its approaches to sepsis and CT/NG testing.
The team's portable assay uses digital droplet microfluidics to detect cases of measles and rubella in settings that lack a centralized lab.
A microfluidic phone attachment developed at Brigham and Women's and Mass General may be the precursor of a fertility assay that men can use in the home.
