Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are the most common type of complication for patients who are hospitalized. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2011 there were an estimated 721,800 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals that led to about 75,000 deaths and more than $20 billion in healthcare costs. It is well documented that hand hygiene is one of the most effective measures to reduce the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens and the incidence of healthcare associated infections.
Our sensor-based platform, Sanibit, helps improve hand hygiene compliance, create a safer environment and reduce infection risks.
Detection and isolation of single cells plays a critical role in life science, biotech and clinical applications. The isolated single cells can used as diagnostic or prognostic markers, for downstream molecular analysis, or proliferate to form colonies for monoclonal antibody production, cell line development and cell therapies.
MagiCyte is patented technology that leverages advances in biotechnology and electronics to rapidly detect and isolate single cells from heterogeneous samples.
