Point of Care Diagnostics & Biosensors

Mobile molecular diagnostics requires miniaturized and automated devices with the highest analytical performance that can determine diseases faster and more accurately using various body fluids. We have profound know-how in the realization of such measurement systems. In terms of system integration, we cover the full spectrum from biomarkers, microfluidics, molecular detection reactions and biosensors to readout electronics and process management. A special focus is on saliva, which is particularly suitable for patient-oriented diagnostics thanks to the non-invasive and always possible sampling.

In the field of biosensor technology, the AIT has many years of experience in the development of highly sensitive and highly selective detection methods for the detection of biomolecules in liquid samples using innovative electrochemical, photonic, magnetic and nanomaterial-based methods.

The focus is on the detection of proteins and nucleic acids for near-patient testing. In our developments we give great importance to cost-efficient mass production suitability and the use of environmentally friendly materials in production and disposal.

System integration is aimed at comprehensive optimization - both in terms of the interaction of the individual components and in terms of a simple and user-friendly overall system.
