Genomadix Bioscience unveils the world’s smallest DNA-testing device
Genomadix Bioscience today introduced the Genomadix Cube, the world’s smallest commercial molecular diagnostics device that enables unprecedented portability and convenience.
The Cube is exceptionally small—it takes up the space of a coffee cup. At only four inches cubed in size, the Cube is portable and fits easily into any space, whether in a hospital, doctor’s office, or pharmacy.
The device’s simple design enables anyone to quickly perform DNA testing. It connects wirelessly to a tablet or laptop that displays test instructions and results with an intuitive touch interface. In addition, the Cube goes from sample to result in a fraction of the time compared to traditional lab-based testing. Doctors, patients, and other users can get immediate results rather than waiting for a lab to run a test.
The Genomadix Cube is a PCR-based platform for a variety of molecular diagnostic applications, including infectious disease, pharmacogenetics, and food and water testing. Genomadix Bioscience will showcase the Genomadix Cube and announce an initial assay menu at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry (AACC) Annual Scientific Meeting & Clinical Lab Expo on July 31, 2016 in Philadelphia, P.A.
Paul Lem, M.D., CEO of Genomadix Bioscience, says the Genomadix Cube is taking the complexity out of DNA testing.
“The Genomadix Cube is a revolutionary molecular diagnostics platform. It enables rapid DNA testing with a device so portable, you can literally hold it in the palm of your hand,” says Dr. Lem. “Whether you want to quickly test a sick patient in a doctor’s office or run a genetic test for drug response—the Genomadix Cube will provide results when and where you need them.”
