TechConnect Innovation Program

Point of Care Biosensor for Rapid Differential Diagnosis of Sepsis

sensoreal Inc., QC, Canada

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

We have developed and protected a technology to accurately deliver and control liquids in microchannels using capillary (surface tension) forces only. Our highly flexible liquid handling platform miniaturizes and automates existing laboratory procedures. We implemented the technology for making one-step highly sensitive point of care assays.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 3

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: (i) multiplexed analysis of a sample with a wide dynamic range (i.e. from µg/ml to pg./ml); (ii) the capability to quantitatively measure a fairly low concentration of protein based disease markers; (iii) low cost manufacturing due to the simplicity of design ($0.60).
