The PAx Platform
The Polyvalent Analyzer (PAx) platform consists of a portable, easy-to-use analyzer, and low-cost, disposable microfluidic cartridges. The system provides lab-quality diagnostic results in as little as 15 minutes at the point-of-care. PAx uses a patented optical detection method which can test for multiple classes of analytes including cells, proteins, and nucleic acids, a feature that is referred to as polyvalence.
ChipCare’s PAx platform is uniquely designed to improve access to diagnostics in any setting
PAx weighs under two kilograms, making it easy to transport to the most remote settings.
Designed for the field, PAx was made to function under the most adverse conditions.
Easy to Use
PAx can be used with confidence by frontline healthcare workers with minimal additional training.
PAx has an eight-hour battery life and can be re-charged via solar power, among other means.
On-board, room-temperature stable reagents eliminate the need for refrigeration.
PAx uses disposable microfluidic cartridges with the ability to run multiple tests on one drop of blood.
Internal Quality Control
PAx can perform quality control on each cartridge, ensuring quality results.
PAx can store up to 1,000 test results and features wireless connectivity, enabling access to patient and quality control data via remote data management systems.
PAx uses affordable disposable cartridges, and by replacing multiple devices through polyvalence, significantly reduces capital expenditure.
12+ Month Shelf Life
Cartridge reagents are good for over a year.
Current Diagnostic Practice for Remote Populations
Current diagnostic practices for remote populations are inefficient and costly. Patients lose time making multiple trips to clinics, and payers incur additional costs from transport and logistics. Increased morbidity and mortality arise from longer wait times and loss to follow-up. Gaps in access to point-of-care diagnostics persist because of the untenable cost of purchasing multiple instruments. Even when point-of-care devices are available, many are not designed for field settings and cannot provide complete diagnostic coverage.
PAx revolutionizes remote diagnostics
With PAx, healthcare providers can perform a wide range of diagnostic tests at the point-of-care, increasing cost efficiency and saving lives by reducing loss to follow-up and allowing patients to start therapy earlier. Reduced travel costs and time spent away from work reduce costs to patients. PAx can be used in any setting, and as the only mobile and polyvalent point-of-care device, can close the gap to diagnostic access for a range of conditions for people around the world.
