Lab-on-a-chips

for biological analysis

INTA develops and produces lab-on-a-chips for the detection of several biological analytes as proteins, viruses, bacteria even in body fluids (blood, saliva). The technology is based on nanoacoustics. By using advanced techniques for the immobilization of probe molecules on the surface of the biosensors and thanks to artificial intelligence algorithms for the data analysis, the INTA's products can detect bio-analytes with very high precision and sensitivity on the surface of a small chip. This technology can be applied to several fields as biomedical, environmental monitoring, security, industry, food analysis.

INTA is developing its first product for the diagnosis of traumatic brain injuries with a rapid and portable system for blood analysis.

All it takes to perform an accurate analysis is a drop of blood, nothing else!

Detect Biomarkers

Our product detects

Biomarkers

  • Proteins/antibodies
  • Viruses (e.g., measles, SARS-CoV-2 spike)
  • Bacteria (e.g., legionella)
  •  Other bio-analytes (e.g., nucleic acids) can be evaluated upon request
Fast and accurate diagnosis
