dianax is making POINT OF NEED testing a reality.
Our revolutionary lab-on-a-chip* puts diagnostics in the palm of your hand – literally – by working in synergy with your smartphone.
By bringing laboratory-grade disease screening, diagnosis and monitoring to the patient, dianax is taking diagnostics straight to the POINT OF NEED. For the first time ever – patients and physicians will be able to KNOW NOW.
Patients NEED easy and convenient ways to monitor their health ‘on the go’. Empowering patients to be a custodian of their own health has been shown to improve health outcomes1
Physicians NEED fast, reliable and accurate blood test results in order to determine the best course of action2
Payors NEED affordable diagnostics to support the wider shift towards decentralization, value-based healthcare and personalized (patient-centric) care3
There is no time to wait:
the time is NOW
We are seeing a tectonic shift in healthcare infrastructure as we know it, powered by the smartphone revolution, and dianax is at the cutting-edge of mobile diagnostic transformation. Our device may be tiny but the implications are immense. While HbA1c-glycated hemoglobin blood testing for diabetes is our primary focus, the dianax lab-on-a-chip can test any protein extracted from bodily fluids (blood, urine, saliva), and so has the potential to transform diagnostic testing across a number of therapy areas.
We believe that rapid detection combined with informed decision-making will optimize treatment and improve patient outcomes. From expediting the screening, diagnosis and management of chronic diseases, such as diabetes or anemia, to detecting bacterial respiratory infections to prevent overuse or misuse of antibiotics, dianax will bring fast, reliable and affordable diagnostics to the POINT OF NEED – anytime, anywhere, for anyone.
We understand that when it comes to people’s health, to KNOW NOW really does matter.
Across the world …
1 in 2
people have iron deficiency anemia5
people are killed each year by antibiotic resistant infection6
We are indebted to those in the European Commission who recognized early on the extraordinary potential of our technology in changing the face of diagnostic testing and awarded a significant grant through their Horizon 2020 Program. This flagship initiative is designed to facilitate ‘breakthroughs, discoveries and world-firsts by taking great ideas from the lab to the market’, and we are committed to doing just that.
