Prototype of a mobile readout device for smartphones

Fraunhofer IZI-BB develops and works on several concepts and technologies in the point-of-care area. In addition to developing new analytical and diagnostic methods, the institute offers its customers and partners the transfer of existing tests (e.g. ELISAs, DNA microarrays, etc.) into a suitable format. For example, an ivD-platform is available that can be adapted for different diagnostic tests depending on the problem at hand. In addition, we offer improved miniaturized test formats, complex multiplex point-of-care platforms, or novel binding molecules such as aptamers for classical ELISA assays.

The value chain required for assay development is fully covered, spanning agriculture, environment and medicine.

The assays can be realized for you on the following platforms.

  • Microarray
  • With aptamers
  • Lateral flow
  • Electrochemical Assays
  • Swabs
  • ivD-Platform
