The Nanomix eLab is a hand-held diagnostic platform that offers fast results, low cost and portability while providing accurate, quantitative results comparable in quality to that provided by central lab testing. Testing is fully automated and intuitive, enabling eLab use at all skill levels, with answers obtained in approximately 10 minutes. Bluetooth connectivity can be used to send data results when test is completed. The system can be used in the hospital or in pre-hospital, remote, or alternative settings. The result is faster decision-making and clinical intervention, and in some cases, the ability to administer treatment in place with lower health care cost.
The initial assay, currently in clinical trials, provides information in approximately 10 minutes for use in initial diagnosis of sepsis. The panel provides rapid, quantitative measurement of 3 sepsis-related biomarkers (lactate, PCT and CRP); data that is not currently available in the clinical decision making time frame and not available at the POC. Future assays will expand Emergency Medicine applications such as cardiac, brain injury, and kidney injury.
