Project Description

Diagnostic Test Kits

Project period: 05/2014 - 05/2016

Nanospeed Diagnostics Inc. and Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH are working together to deliver advanced micro- and nanotechnology-enabled point-of-care test platforms that allow healthcare practitioners to have quick and accurate access to crucial ‘Personal Health Information’ such as: thyroid hormone levels and/or antibiotic levels, treatment adherence and treatment outcomes.

NanoSpeed Diagnostics Inc.

Location: Edmonton,, Canada
Founded: 2009
Products: Health testing kits

Nanospeed develops proprietary diagnostic/screening test kit
platforms. Their technologies provide cost effective, rapid and
reliable testing tools that will address the increasing needs of the
healthcare industry, regulatory agencies and the food safety and
agricultural industries. The self test (using Nanospeed’s point-ofcare-
test platforms) allows the user (patient or doctor) to have
quick and accurate access to crucial personal health information
such as Vitamin D level, Thyroid hormone levels, and specific
mineral levels (i.e. Calcium and Iron).

Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH

Location: Jena, Canada
Founded: 1981
Products: Microfluidic-diagnostic devices

Microfluidic ChipShop GmbH’s mission is to shrink the biological and chemical laboratory in order to bring lab-ona-
chip systems into daily laboratory life at a reasonable cost. The company focuses on the design, realization and volume fabrication of lab-on-a-chip systems. An international leader in its field, the company offers off-the-shelf microfluidic solutions, instruments like a PCR, a nucleic acid sample preparation or an electrophoresis system. The “Design-your-Lab-Concept” is the company’s well accepted approach to custom-design work for affordable budgets.
