The Rapid MiniLab™

Modular system based on PCR in a PoC environment enables multi-sample testing

Our client wanted a clinical instrument and consumable that would enable their prototype technology to be commercially exploited in the growing Point of Care market.

Our approach

Working closely with the client Sagentia undertook:

  • Extensive technical development of core IP components
  • Extensive effort to develop agreed specifications
  • Concept generation of system architectures
  • Successful integration of industrial and technical design requirements for the system and its complex multi-well consumable that is fundamentally easy to use

Client benefit

  • True “Sample in Results Out” capability using on-board sample prep
  • Universally accepted industrial design
  • Expandable system to meet all customers’ needs
  • Competitive costs for the system consumable
