The Biosensor is a Platform for Multiple Diagnostic Tests
World-first Organic Thin Film Transistor (OTFT) technology
The Biosensor Platform is a small, printable organic strip designed to put the power of accurate, timely diagnosis in the hands of patients and their primary health practitioners.
By altering the detection element (region A) depending on the specific analyte of interest, we have the ability to produce a whole portfolio of non-invasive, real-time, saliva-based diagnostic tests.
Because both the core OTFT sensing element and the mechanism of action remains the same, tests developed from the Biosensor Platform have the potential to be printed at scale, at a low cost.
