The Fraunhofer ivD-platform was designed to perform diagnostic testing in laboratories as well as in non-laboratory environments such as doctor‘s offices, emergency departments or directly at the patient´s home. The system consists of a smaller than credit-card sized cartridge and a base-unit. By the use of microarray technologies, the system offers the highest number of parameters simultaneously measured at the patient‘s bedside. Furthermore, the system is open for almost every biochemical test enabling an easy transfer. The amount of biomarkers to be analyzed can easily be increased.
The functionality of the Fraunhofer ivD-platform was already demonstrated. Further assays and assay types can easily be transfered onto the platform. Therefore exclusive partnering possibilities can be offered.
