  • High accuracy, low blood volume microarray-based test for bacterial sepsis

    A host-directed diagnostic methodology, which uses only 30 μL of whole blood, and enables rapid and accurate detection of sepsis in neonates and other subjects. The test removes false negative results associated with current gold standard microbiological methods.

  • Accurate diagnostic test for Parkinson’s disease

    This sensitive, rapid and highly accurate assay offers a less invasive mechanism for initial diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. This would facilitate early intervention and implementation of an appropriate care package.

  • Rapid detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) & antibiotic sensitivity testing (AST)

    Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscepti...

  • Rapid, sensitive counting of viable bacteria: the Molecular Bacterial Load Assay (MBLA)

    The Molecular Bacterial Load Assay (MBLA) provides a rapid and sensitive way to detect viable bacteria. MBLA opens up new applications in the diagnosis and treatment monitoring of a range of chronic bacterial infections, representing an opportunity to create a completely new platform of bacterial di...

  • Biomarker assay to enable safe corticosteroid withdrawal

    Using hypothesis-free metabolomics screening, a list of seven biomarkers has been identified that, when combined, are highly sensitive in predicting corticosteroid dose and, thus, the risk of adrenal insufficiency on corticosteroid withdrawal. Quantitative assays for these metabolites will create a ...

  • Catanostics - Non-Invasive Early Stage Cataract Diagnosis & Severity Quantification tool

    Catanostics (Cataract Diagnostics) offers an alternative to the slit lamp currently used for cataract diagnosis before referring a patient for cataract surgery. Our non-invasive fluorescence scan offers "better diagnosis" through non-subjective analysis of data on cataract symptoms & severity lea...

  • The eFinger - non-subjective Prostate Examination & Prostate Cancer Indication Tool

    Prostate Cancer, caught early enough, is increasingly treatable. Digital rectal examination of the Prostate is often the first stage of prostate cancer screening but is somewhat subjective. eFinger offers an alternative - a numerical non-subjective indication based on prostate tissue properties to p...

  • Lab in a Pill

    Scientists at the University of Glasgow have pioneered a new sensor technology, Lab-in-a-Pill, that could have major impact on the cost and effectiveness of bowel cancer treatment.
