Digital diagnostic technologies developer IdentifySensors Biologics has launched a new research facility at the Innovation Centre in Gainesville, Florida, US.

The new facility is aimed at the development of additional products and offers support for product evaluation.

It is equipped with research and development capabilities to create sensitive graphene biosensors.

IdentifySensors Biologics has engaged a team of scientists specialising in material science, electrochemistry and molecular biology to work at the research centre. It also plans to expand the facility and add more staff members to bolster the research team.

The team is currently accelerating the development of digital biosensors that can identify a wide range of pathogens through the company’s Check4 diagnostics platform.

The Check4diagnostic platform features an assay kit, comprising a sample collection device and test cartridge, as well as a Bluetooth reader, cloud reporting system and mobile application.

Its objective is to enable the simultaneous detection and differentiation of up to three pathogens from a single saliva sample within minutes.

This patented technology uses graphene-based biosensors to selectively detect particular nucleic acid sequences.

In addition, the platform operates at a molecular gene level and does not require enzymatic amplification or reagents.

The company has so far tested biosensors for respiratory pathogens, including Covid-19, Influenza, respiratory syncytial virus and other pathogens.

The facility is expected to soon start assessing products for upcoming regulatory submissions.

Furthermore, it will involve the development of novel sensors that can quickly identify pathogens, including sexually transmitted diseases Lyme, rotavirus, norovirus and adenovirus.

IdentifySensors CEO Greg Hummer stated that the company’s long-term plans comprise biosensors intended to quickly identify non-pathogen diseases.

Hummer further said: “We have an outstanding group of scientists who have taken this technology from the laboratory and made it commercially viable for large-scale production.

“We look forward to submitting this technology to the FDA this year and sharing our data with investors and strategic partners.”
