Unlike many other screening and diagnostic methods, Aqsens Health’s E-TRF method is non-invasive.
The method utilizes easily obtainable biological samples, such as saliva, urine and feces, for analysis, depending on the disease the patient is being tested for.
The collection of biological samples is easy and comfortable, especially for children and the elderly. Sampling does not require a laboratory environment and can also be done at home, which significantly brings down the price of a single test.
Our method was designed from the very beginning to be fast - analysis can be done and the results read and delivered instantly after the sample is collected and pretreated.
In addition to quick testing, our development framework is also exceptionally fast and agile, giving us the opportunity to develop screening tests for multiple diseases simultaneously.
Accurate and reliable results are the key in successful screening and diagnostics.
In all of the tests conducted so far, our method’s remarkable sensitivity and specificity currently exceed the ones of the industry’s gold standard screening method.
To make screening large proportions of the population against diseases possible, the screening method must be affordable.
Aqsens Health’s method is more than 50 percent cheaper than the currently available screening methods, making large-scale screenings a feasible option both in developed countries, and in developing economies.
The Aqsens E-TRF method can be deployed as a combination of a portable reader device, single-use consumable testkit and an application that can be used with any mobile device.
The mobile device has a battery life of more than two days, and is connected to an operating app via bluetooth. Using the portable device does not require any medical expertise, and anyone with a basic training in sample collection is able to use it. The device will provide accurate results almost instantly after the sample has been taken.
