The Fraunhofer ivD-platform combines the competence of seven institutes within the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and exhibit extensive interdisciplinary experiences and expertise in all fields of service and development up to production. That guarantees the adaption of customer-specific problems to tailor-made solutions and serves to solve problems from any biomarker to ivD-products that can match the needs of the market.
Within the platform a modular system was established, which contains a microfluidic cartridge as the central element, selectable read-out systems, and a complete assembly line. This modular system can be adapted to various biomedical challenges which leads to a quick, easy, cost-effective, and close-to-patient diagnostic tool supporting a fast and reliable medical decision. Beside different assay formats with immobilized biological or artificial recognition elements also an integrated sample preparation tool and PCR-unit are available to solve almost every diagnostic problem. Furthermore, each component of this modular system is offered seperately to match all costumers needs.
