In Vitro Diagnostic
Fluorescence, Raman, spectroscopy, light scattering, functional microscopy are some of the many reference techniques used in diagnostics. Theses can be used in multiple embodiments and environments: IVD tools, Lab-On-Chip solutions, Point-Of-Care devices and Healthcare wearables. Associated with microfluidics, flowcells, microsutructures or biochips, photonics generates and controls the physical signal that is instrumental to realize the diagnostic.
Detecting COVID-19 with optics
In this sector, Lambda-X turns brand new concepts into truly working IVD devices in a few months. One good example is the development in 2021 of a new and innovative PCR testing platform, in collaboration with Verhaert Masters In Innovation and imec. The goal of this new PCR apparatus was to perform fast and automatic COVID-19 detection at public sites such as airports. Providing the same sensitivity and accuracy compared to classical naso-pharyngeal PCR test but in a much faster way: 20min vs. 7hrs, typically.
In this photonics based automatic PCR reader, a multi-laser irradiation based microscope (designed and produced by Lambda-X) performs a fluorescence test measurement on a silicon chip (imec) after patient exposure through a breathing device (Verhaert MII).
Your partner from design to manufacturing
Another key contribution in the IVD sector is the capability of Lambda-X to design and OEM manufacture optical systems in a compact all-in one embodiment, to meet constrained environments in terms of limited footprints and low contamination levels. Compact optical set-ups are enabled by miniature optics and specific opto-mechanical designs. They will ideally match portability and ease-of-use requirements for Point-Of-Care and hand-held IVD devices.
