The Dianax lab-on-a-chip aims to transform diagnostics by making it portable and easy to use, to deliver reliable results in near-real time and onsite via a reader or a smart-phone.
It is designed to be more precise, affordable, faster, more durable and more resistant to vibration and adverse temperature than any other existing portable devices for protein detection.
The Dianax technology can be chemically tuned at production, to test virtually any protein from body fluids and it can be programmed to test up to three-four proteins on the same device.
Potential applications on established markers can substantially transform self-monitoring, emergency diagnostics, management of public health epidemics, healthcare delivery in emerging markets and in rural areas and payors’ screening.
Dianax for integrated diabetes management
The first application of the Dianax technology is the first ever lab-on-a-chip designed to offer integrated diabetes monitoring by combining three main diabetes tests: insulin, glycated hemoglobin (HbA1C) and glucose monitoring. It is a complete set of accurate instruments for diabetes and pre-diabetes home monitoring in a single device that is inexpensive, portable and easy to use.
The Dianax diabetes lab-on-a-chip has the potential to transform:
1.Emergency treatment of patients affected by acute hypoglycemia, diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) and hyperglycemic hyperosmolar state (HHS) by immediately identifying undiagnosed diabetes via HbA1c test and accurate treatment tuning via insulin test
2.Insulin therapy management in Type 1 diabetes patients through insulin testing at home, which is especially important in young patients and children with frequent poor compliance to strict lifestyle requirements
3.Diabetes prevention by enabling efficient and low-cost home monitoring of pre-diabetes patients via HbA1c testt
