Multiplexed Point-of-Care Diagnostics for
Sexually Transmitted Infections
Enabling true "Test and Treat" patient care.
Accessible, Actionable, Affordable
ChipCare is a Toronto-based company developing a highly versatile point-of-care (POC) diagnostic platform which will enable unparalleled sample-to-action workflow in the clinic. Utilizing a patented approach for analyte detection, the platform can perform multiple classes of assays including cell surface markers, proteins and nucleic acids from an easily collected sample such as urine. Healthcare workers in medical clinics, STI clinics, pharmacy clinics, physicians' offices and remote health locations will be able to rapidly and accurately perform lab quality tests to aid in the diagnosis or monitoring of a wide range of infectious diseases.
ChipCare's initial focus is on sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the North American and European markets. Physicians will be able to provide true "test and treat" options for their patients, significantly enhancing the overall quality of patient care while reducing healthcare costs.
