BIOIDENT Develops Industries First Complete Functional Lab-on-a-Chip System

BIOIDENT Technologies Inc., the leading company in the development of printed optoelectronic solutions for life sciences, today announced the industry’s first complete, functional lab-on-a-chip system—the PhotonicFlowTM System.

The first application of the PhotonicFlowTM System announced today is comprised of a multiwell chip, a handheld device controller and readout software. The PhotonicFlowTM System is based on BIOIDENT’s PhotonicLabTM Platform, which combines printed semiconductors with various lab-on-chip technologies. With this breakthrough technology development, BIOIDENT’s customers and partners now have the ability to develop disposable lab-on-a-chip solutions that eliminate the need for expensive and bulky readout systems, enabling cost-effective mobile diagnostics and analysis.

The PhotonicFlowTM System application unveiled today expands upon BIOIDENT’s previously announced nanotiter plate prototype— a 1”x3” multiwell chip with a fully integrated photodetector array based on printed semiconductor technology with a dedicated pixel under each well on the chip. This array converts light into electrical signals, enabling real-time analysis on multiple agents. The new components of the PhotonicFlowTM System are the handheld device controller for electronic readout of the signals from the photodetector and the readout software for analytics and calibration.

This new prototype eliminates the need for large, expensive external readout systems being used today and opens up new opportunities for applications in medical in-vitro diagnostics, chemical/biological threat detection and water testing.

“The PhotonicFlowTM System is a significant milestone for BIOIDENT and for the industry,” said Dr. Wasiq Bokhari, CEO for BIOIDENT Technologies. “This system provides our partners a fast path to deliver new point of care tests that are easy to use and cost effective for end users. By integrating the PhotonicFlowTM System with their existing devices, assays and reagents, our partners can rapidly develop highly sensitive and multiplexed diagnostics across multiple markets. This is truly a next generation mobile lab that is set to transform current diagnostics and analysis testing across multiple markets.”

BIOIDENT’s PhotonicLabTM Platform uses printed semiconductor based technology to print light detection and electronics capabilities directly onto any surface, including glass and plastic materials, enabling on-chip analysis and diagnostics. In addition, the company uses existing assays and reagents and established testing protocols to deliver real-time and in-situ multi-parameter detection capabilities for all categories of chemical and biological analytes. BIOIDENT’s printing process can also be used to create a wide variety of existing in-vitro diagnostic devices, opening up new opportunities and applications for real-time analysis of chemical and biological substances.

“The combination of NANOIDENT’s SEMICONDUCTOR 2.0TM Platform technology with our highly specialized, market specific testing capabilities has resulted in a new PhotonicFlowTM System that is unique in the market today,” said Max Sonnleitner, CTO for BIOIDENT Technologies Inc. “We look forward to working with our partners to develop exciting new applications across the healthcare, water testing and bio/chem threat detection markets.”
