New website shows benefits of piezofilm technology in diagnostics
31 January 2009
The benefits of using piezofilm detection technology at the Point of
Care are described on a new website launched by Vivacta. With the
help of informative graphics, the site provides a concise introduction into
how this innovative technology enables the creation of fast, simple and
highly accurate immunoassay-based near patient diagnostic tests.
The new website also reviews the benefits of basing critical diagnostic
measurements on an electrical output as opposed to current optical
methods of signal detection, such as photometric, fluorescence and chemiluminescence.
An illustration is also provided showing the simple sequence that leads
from taking a 30μm whole blood sample, using Vivacta’s disposable
cartridge, right through to final result generation on the portable
Via a link to a published paper, the performance details of Vivacta’s
lead assay — a highly sensitive test for TSH — can be accessed from the
new website. This serves to give an example of the exceptional
performance conferred by the company’s patented piezofilm technology.
