Through its diagnostic program, Biophage is developing a biosensor using an innovative nanotechnology. These nanosensors are based on impedance spectroscopy, an enabling technology that can detect and quantify microbial pathogens in real-time. The unique nanosensors will be built from various proprietary technologies already developed by Biophage (biocapture molecule: phages and antibodies) and by the Biotechnology Research Institute-NRC (signal generation and detection).
Nicoya Lifesciences is a company developing innovative medical diagnostic products using nanotechnology. Their goal is to provide consumers with new diagnostic tools that are affordable, connected, and intuitive, allowing them better control over their own health and wellness. Nicoya is using a proprietary nanoparticle sensor for blood protein biomarker diagnostics.
