MIAtek® is real breakthrough technology with strong patent protection taken over from Magnisense SE by OVVI Diagnostics.
MIAtek® technology can measure low concentrations of proteins, peptides and micro-organisms in complex biological samples such as whole blood, in just a few minutes, using a robust, portable, and user-friendly instrument.
This is based on the unique use of magnetic nanoparticles as labels to detect super-paramagnetic signals. The biological reaction takes place on the cartridge.
During the reaction, the magnetic beads specifically bind to the selected marker present in the biological matrix. The consumable is then inserted into the reading head of the instrument. The magnetic signal generated by the beads, specifically bound to the marker, is measured and then directly correlated to the markers in order to determine the concentration of antigens.
