Nanosynex is a diagnostic test that checks bacterial resistance to antibiotics in a record time, using a phenotypic approach that involves microfluidic techniques and fluorescent-based analysis.
The test helps doctors determine faster (same-day results) the most appropriate antibiotic treatment for their patients, helping them recover in a shorter time and preventing the spread of resistant bacteria in the environment. By limiting prolonged hospitalization, Nanosynex allows to save significant healthcare costs.
Nanosynex solution will be sold to clinical laboratories as disposables cards and a fluorescent reading device.
The product is developed in the lab of Prof. Levenberg, Dean of the Technion Biomedical Engineering Faculty, and has a partnership with Biosynex, a French company in the rapid diagnostic industry with a distribution network in 60 countries.
