Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing

Converting existing technologies to meet critical needs in infectious disease testing

Background:

LifeScale® AST ​
Affinity Biosensors

Need:

Adapt Affinity’s unique particle metrology technology for the microbiology market to address rapid diagnosis and selection of appropriate antibiotic therapy. ​

Solution:

Ximedica provided a solution to the automation of the assay workflow through our AsysTek™ robotics engine along with deep experience in system architecture, while Affinity supplied its unique MEMS technology and focus on the microbiology applications.​

Result:

Ximedica and Affinity produced fully functional clinical trial units under strictly regimented ISO-13485 design controls. The new LifeScale platform offers several key benefits over optical density measurement of microbes. These include ultra-high resolution of mass, detection of growth at lower concentrations, and elimination of measurement anomalies associated with microbe labels or surface binding.​
