spinit instrument

05.09.2013

spinit® intrument, a proprietary technological platform for the Point of Care Testing (POCT) market, delivers results in a matter of minutes translating into faster, more accurate clinical diagnosis and improved patient care.

Our solution is a user-friendly instrument, that uses one small drop of blood and gives precise results within 15 min for multi-parameter test panels.

Our platform combines different detection modules and will soon have the potential to perform the vast majority of blood tests available in the form of different types of test panels (spinit® - disposable tests).

Our first test, spinit® CRP addresses the clinical need for the diagnosis of bacterial diseases and in the differentiation between bacterial and viral infections.

Our second test, spinit® Blood Count, enables the 5-part Leukocyte counting plus Heamatocrit measurement.

It is planned that future tests will include diabetes and cardiac multi-parameter panels.

Our pipeline reflects the continuous effort to develop different cartridges for the spinit® platform, addressing the physicians needs.

spinit® Cartridge and spinit® Instrument

15.11.2013

The spinit® cartridge contains all the required reagents to perform a test, and uses only a drop of blood from the patient. When placed in the spinit® reader, the cartridge will spin to predetermined velocities, and the resulting centrifugal force in the microfluidic structures of the cartridge will perform the necessary fluid handling operations.

Biosurfit's microfluidic R&D has resulted in several patented technologies to enable complex fluid management in a compact disc format. These technologies were combined with standard compact disc production techniques from our industrial partners to develop the spinit®cartridge, a disposable self-contained cartridge for the spinit® reader.

The spinit® instrument currently combines optical modules for Immunoassays and optical microscopy for cell counts.

spinit® Instrument

15.11.2013

The spinit® Instrument currently combines optical modules for Immunoassays and optical microscopy for cell counts.

The technology behind the spinit® Immunoassay detection relies on Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) , a well established spectrometry technique, that enables the detection of molecular changes on the cartridge's biological recognition layer. SPR biosensors are based on a simple and direct optical technique that can be used to probe refractive index changes that occur in the very close vicinity of a thin metal film surface.

Biosurfit's in-house R&D enables us to integrate several of our proprietary technologies with tried-and-true standard industrial computer systems to provide a cost-effective high precision SPR analyser within a small footprint. Thanks to the modular development approach used in the spinit® instrument, several other analyzer modules that we are currently also working on will integrate seamlessly with our current product, enabling us to provide a varied array of tests.

spinit® CRP: Proteína C-Reactiva

15.11.2013

spinit® CRP addresses the clinical need for the diagnosis of bacterial diseases and in the differentiation between bacterial and viral infections.

CRP is an acute phase protein actively circulating in the body during an inflammatory response. There is strong international consensus within the medical community to adopt CRP as the standard test for evaluating systemic inflammations in hospitals and clinics. Several studies further emphasize the extreme relevance of CRP as a standard test parameter important in treating bacterial infections significantly decreasing the chances of inadequately prescribing antibiotics and more effectively treating other infections and inflammatory conditions. Reducing prescription of antibiotics in general practices may help decrease the levels of antibiotic resistance on a local and global scale
