Antibiotic Susceptibility Testing
Converting existing technologies to meet critical needs in infectious disease testing
Adapt Affinity’s unique particle metrology technology for the microbiology market to address rapid diagnosis and selection of appropriate antibiotic therapy.
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.
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.
