THE MAGIA TECHNOLOGY
Transfer any immunoassay onto our Point-of-Care technology
MagIA diagnostics Point-of-Care technology couples magnetic beads immunoassay to an innovative detection method. Micro-magnetic structures capture nanoparticle in a revolutionary manner, allowing for a direct detection of molecules of interest without any additional washing steps.
This makes MagIA diagnostics technology versatile and robust, allowing for an easy transfer of any existing immunoassay onto its portable systems. The company’s multi-patented approach is suitable for quantitative detections in most biological sample fluids, including full blood.
MagIA diagnostics disposable microfluidic cartridges are based on capillary forces, thus eliminating the necessity of costly actuation systems. By introducing only 5 µl of sample fluids into the cartridge, the biochemical reagents will be suspended and the detection will take place. No prior sample preparation is required. The MagIA diagnostics reader family’s low-power fluorescent detection makes the technology perfectly suitable for portable lab-on-chip analysis. Altogether, the technology will deliver quantitative diagnostic results in less than 10 minutes. MagIA diagnostics technology will soon be available on a laboratory class benchtop devices and an autonomous handheld device.
