Revolutionizing biosensing approaches with light sensing, Instant NanoBiosensors' FOPPR technology creates vision of mutual benefit
In times of illness that necessitate physical exams at the hospital, most people have the experience of having to wait long periods of time for computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) results. Although spinal fluid extraction and biopsy of organic tissue are mature technologies, patients are daunted by the invasive nature of these procedures. The fiberoptic particle plasmon resonance (FOPPR) technology developed by Instant NanoBiosensors not only has sensitivity far exceeding other mainstream instruments on the market, but is able to, using just a small amount of peripheral blood (serum, less than 20uL) and three simple steps-- sample injection, analysis and report generation, produce testing results in just a few minutes.
