The MycroLab® platform strategy is
built around on our complex, credit card-sized Mycro®Card
consumables. Each Mycro®Card is typically application specific (but
in some cases will incorporate a number of different assays).
Manual Mycro®Cards use integrated
Mycro®Button controlled fluid handling. These
manual Mycro®Cards are designed for less critical assays (that
do not require full automation) in
both the Mycro®Uni and Mycro®Multi instruments.
Automated Mycro®Cards are for use only
in the Mycro®Uni, where fluid control is handled directly by the
instrument with no manual intervention. These automated Mycro®Cards
are designed to handle complex assay protocols that may require
Universal Assay Range
Our miniaturisation and integration of the entire assay process into a
Mycro®Card allows MycroLab to incorporate multiple technology
streams into our miniaturised devices, thereby enabling them to process
a very wide range of assays. This provides a unique ability to serve
many user needs with the same core instrumentation, simply by customising
the consumables. We are able make this wide variety of consumables at low cost on our highly
flexible, high throughput, proprietary SWAPP® consumable
Complete Assay Protocol On Card
These highly sophisticated, yet low cost
“lab-on-a-chip” devices contain the complete assay process
on-card and manage integrated microfluidic pumping, valving, degassing,
filtering, separation and mixing operations.
Detection is performed via optical cells and electronic integration for electrochemical detection.
Importantly the Mycro®Cards can be configured to have on-board
Calibration and Quality Control as a part of the assay Quality
Assurance system of safeguards. This simplifies end user operation and
improves the diagnostic result.
