Micro-Tele-BioChip (µTBC) – The Definition
µTBC is a technology platform consisting of three independent product modules that are customized according to specific requirements in drug safety and POC.
- Module I: BLISC (Blood Liquid Separation Chip) – a microfluidic blood/plasma separation unit that physically and without actuators separates smallest volumes of blood into plasma and
- Module II: Chip carrier and surface coupling chemistry
- Module III: Compact, miniaturized instrument incorporating innovative laser-induced fluorescence technology
The µTBC, a multiplex detection chip used either with plasma, whole or capillary blood, and its portable,
miniaturized instrument deliver sensitive, reliable, quantitative results of a broad range of analytes comprising small drugs/metabolites, haptens, peptides, proteins and cells with built-in,
encrypted, remote, wireless data transmission capabilities. It offers a selective on-chip triage capability of metabolites by innovative antibody engineering directed against smallest
molecular structures and may be used both in therapeutics and diagnostics.
