NANOPLEX® enables point-of-care ID and enumeration to rapidly diagnose bacterial infections. Delivering the same quality of information expected from laboratory tests at the point of care.
NANOPLEX® enables an entire product line of diagnostic devices commencing with Urinary Tract Infections: addressing over treatment and over-use of antibiotics in hospitals and community settings.
Epithelial cells are coated in glycans, simple sugars exploited by pathogens during bacterial infection
We have mimicked this process by engineering a proprietary library of probes capable of recognising target proteins on the surface of the bacteria.
Probes are added directly to the sample and rapidly form glycan-binding complexes with target bacteria.
NANOPLEX® rapidly confirms ID and CFU/ml within 15 minutes.
