Business members: profile
Vantix Ltd (formerly Universal Sensors Ltd)
Vantix offers a potentiometric biosensor platform for developing ligand-binding assays (immuno, enzymic, nucleic etc). The robust biosensors enable the quantitative detection of analytes in complex aqueous-based samples with little or no sample preparation. The low cost measuring system, Vantix II R&D reader, measures up to 12 individual biosensors in a comb, is highly sensitive (<pM), easy to use & significantly reduces assay time (5-10 mins). The system measures oxidative state, pH and ionic strength changes. Enabling many more assay formats to be investigated on the same platform.
Core business activities include development of an automated POC system; In-house sensor manufacture; Contract R&D, Assay transfer and development.
Main products and services:
We are building a platform diagnostic technology that can cope with the majority of tests (e.g. immunoassays, cell based assays, enzyme-based assays and Nucleic acid assays) performed in the following industry sectors; clinical and veterinary diagnostics, environmental, food, feed and drink, agriculture, biodefense and security amongst others.
Our main focus is the development of an automated cartridge based POC system for the doctors office to measure and report all the most requested tests whilst the patient is still with the doctor. This is currently a beta prototype.
Products and services include universal or specific biosensors; Multichannel measuring system Vantix II R&D; Assay transfer service and development.
Clients, Collaborative R&D, Joint Ventures, IP Licensing.
We have a platform technology which has a huge application potential with room for many types of collaborations. We are seeking synergistic technologies and assays to apply to our technology in all sectors.
