MEDICAL FIELD: Laboratory: Antibiotic resistance
LOCATION: Munich, Germany
Our interconnected and fast-lived world poses enormous challenges on healthcare systems. The ever lingering risk of new antibiotic resistances in bacteria or the spread of infectious diseases are hard to come by with current methods where the detection of the pathogen is the essential point for a successful treatment. This is not because the technology does not exist, but because it is too slow and too complicated to be deployed at the fundamental, point-of-care level. With our product, we will overcome this problem. Using a novel approach that does not rely on time-consuming molecular amplification steps, we will provide diagnostic assays that are cheaper and quicker than other assays on the market, while the readout will be possible with a modified smartphone camera – enabling profound diagnostics with unprecedented speed.
