Transforming medical diagnostics with exceptional sensitivity

Medical diagnostics is about to be transformed – saving lives and money. Canatu CNT offers the highest sensitivity outside a lab – over 10 times more sensitive than anything our competitors can offer. Proven in in vitro matrices, the superior sensitivity is made possible by our patented dry deposition technology, which allows us to create CNTs with uniquely pristine and expansive surface areas. This enormous, three-dimensional surface provides many binding sites for biorecognition elements to interact with target analytes, enabling stronger signals even in complex matrices. Exceptional sensitivity unlocks unprecedented detection capabilities for new assays. Furthermore, severe infections and diseases, like cancer, can now be diagnosed at their earliest stages, improving patient outcomes, monitoring, and safety.

Lab in hand enables informed decisions at point-of-care

Medical diagnostics is on the verge of something new. Testing is shifting from centralized to point-of-care, enabling simple testing and quick results in minutes. Electrochemical biosensors are at the forefront of this transformation. They provide quantitative detection of any desired analyte at the point of care. Multiple biomarkers can be tested simultaneously. This empowers caregivers to make better-informed decisions at the point-of-care, saving lives and money.
