About miDiagnostics
miDiagnostics is developing a revolutionary new generation of disposable medical diagnostics tests that require only a small drop of capillary blood and allow detection of cells, proteins, nucleic acids, and/or small molecules. Our core technology is a novel silicon-based nanofluidic processor that automatically processes the blood sample without the need of pumps or valves. miDiagnostics’ goal is to remove the need for complex and costly instrumentation, enabling medical decisions to be taken at the point of need or remote areas with a high level of comfort to both patients and caregivers. The first application miDiagnostics is working on is a complete blood count test.
