We are developing a cutting-edge technology which will provide life-saving information to people globally.
With a 30 minute detection time and a >99% accuracy rate, Fluid-Screen is a unique technology platform that has applications in a wide range of industries.
Microbiome: Problems of sample concentration and bacterial identification will see an innovative solution.
Pharma: Our technology will accelerate pharmaceutical testing with its functionality in blood and other bodily fluids.
Quality Assurance: Catching a bacterial threat in 30 minutes is the difference between product shipment and recall.
Water: Bacterial outbreaks due to water contamination can be identified before anyone gets sick.
Point-Of-Care: With a 30 minute test to identify bacteria, doctors will choose targeted regimens before patients even leave their offices.
Manufacturing and Quality Assurance: Fast and accurate information at all stages of the product cycle will pinpoint contamination events.
Fluid-Screen provides a flexible platform to detect and identify bacteria in a variety of fluids. The reusable handheld reader works with a sterile disposable chip to provide information on bacterial contamination in 30 minutes with >99% accuracy.
The sterile chip incorporates microfluidics, microelectronics, and microbiology to separate bacteria from fluids and to find their identity.
Fluid-Screen is based on a patented silicon-based biosensor technology developed in the Yale University School of Engineering and Applied Science in Reedlab. The core product has two small, portable components:
Sample Chip – a disposable module with a built-in filtration system and biosensor.
Reader – a reusable, hand-held electronic processor that identifies the presence, specific type and condition of bacteria in the sample. The reader sends data via Bluetooth/WiFi to either a desktop or mobile device
