How are they Solving it?
The future of biosensor-powered diagnostics relies on how well, and accurately we can transform biological signals into digital results. Doing this requires a bio-electronic interphase that can detect biological interactions, and biochemical reactions, and convert them to machine language, ones and zeroes. We have developed a graphene based chipset that can do exactly that. By integrating modern electronic chipsets with biorecognition elements we can detect biologic signals in real time.
Our nanochip, a graphene based transistor the size of a quarter, can detect target analytes in serum, saliva or urine from a patient, and provide results within 5 minutes.
We have developed so far an ultra-rapid antigen detection kit based on these graphene sensors, that has a sensitivity on-par with PCR assays, but provides results within minutes with 1-2 drops of sample. We have also designed and tested a biosensor that can analyze and detect the presence of IL-6, on par with the newest ELISA methods, for a fraction of it’s cost, and within minutes.
