AmpCrystal®, SuperNova Diagnostics' lead technology and its multiple product formats, allows for minimally trained individuals (advanced CLIA-waived) to test for a wide range of protein analytes and can detect directly un-amplified DNA in humans, animals or environmental samples.
Time-to-result has been shown in prototypes to be reduced to minutes on the spot versus the hours or days required when sending samples to a central laboratory or processing in regional satellite laboratories. With three integrated capabilities (sample collector/processor, analytical disposable, and the readout device), the technology is simpler, more robust, faster and significantly less expensive than existing POC systems.
Significant advantages of AmpCrystals are direct detection of samples, simplification of product designs, ability to lower costs of delivery and broaden range of assay formats from the central laboratory.
