Minimum Space Requirement – Maximum Detection Efficiency

POC diagnosis: Compact multispectral sensor delivers fast, medically specific test results

PixelSensor-PC R-Response


Once considered a research tool, advanced molecular diagnostics now allow the medical community to draw on a much wider range of available assays for routine use in patient care, from infectious disease diagnosis to genetic testing.
While analysis is often performed at dedicated hospital or offsite laboratories due to the cost and size of the instrumentation, the desire for faster diagnoses has sparked a trend toward decentralized diagnostic testing at the point-of-care (POC) or near the patient.

When care or triage is needed immediately or when access to the patient is limited due to lack of, or distance from medical facilities, POC diagnostics provide rapid testing results and lead to both better patient engagement and decreased risk of lost patient follow-up appointments.

As point-of-care (POC) molecular diagnostics transforms medicine by bringing sophisticated diagnostic testing to the patient, the need for compact optical and detection technologies is increasing. Highly integrated multispectral sensors fill this niche well, reducing the complexity, footprint, and cost of OEM instrumentation significantly.
In contrast to the full spectrum acquired by a spectrometer, a multispectral sensor collects data only at the wavelength bands of most interest to the application
By integrating filtering and detection into monolithic elements in an array of up to 8 channels, the breakthrough PixelSensor™ multispectral sensor from PIXELTEQ is poised to offer even greater multispectral detection efficiency in a package the size of a fingernail.
