The ADEXUSDx® Analyzer is a portable handheld analyzer that performs blood analysis at the point-of-care for use with the ADEXUSDx® test cassettes, used by healthcare professionals trained and certified to use the ADEXUSDx® System.
Day after day, analytical testing laboratories face considerable challenges due to backlogs of time-critical samples, rising per-sample costs, availability of skilled laboratory technicians, and chromatography maintenance and downtime. The Thermo Scientific™ VeriSpray™ PaperSpray ion source uniquely addresses these concerns. Combine the VeriSpray ion source with next-generation Thermo Scientific™ mass spectrometers to reduce time to results and cost per test with automated, high-throughput, direct mass spectrometry (MS)-based sample analysis. The VeriSpray ion source allows use of “dilute and shoot” methods to minimize solvent consumption and time-consuming sample preparation steps like derivatization, while avoiding needs for expert operators and instrument downtime. For laboratories currently performing LC or GC methods, or for those that want to add the robust sensitivity and selectivity of MS-based tests, the VeriSpray ion source provides an ideal alternative to the complexity of chromatography-based solutions.
Part of ‘Phase 3: Production Engineering’ often includes the design and fabrication of assembly and testing fixtures. Omnica has built hundreds of these using in-house engineering and fabrication resources.
Thermastar™ for Volcano Therapeutics – Intravascular thermography device for research. This system measures minute interior artery temperature changes and identifies areas where arterial plaque may form. We proved feasibility of the client’s proprietary arterial catheter, and based on that technology we developed a complete diagnostic system which could be used in a clinical setting. We designed a custom keyboard, the PC cart housing, a handheld controller, and the video-based GUI for the operating software. Our in-house team managed the manufacture of the rotomolded parts, controller and keyboards. We prototyped and assembled 10 fully operational units.
Omnica design engineers have been involved in the development of laboratory IVD instrumentation, including: photometric, amperometric, fluorescent and chemiluminescent clinical and immunoassay analyzers, immunoassay washers and liquid handling devices, microfluidic POC cartridges, sample preparation & input devices, cell lysis, magnetic bead handling, precision thermal control, high speed PCR amplification, mass spectrometry ion sources & consumables, and lateral flow test strips. These projects often require a feasibility and proof of concept ‘Phase 0’, which Omnica’s in-house resources are well equipped to handle.
R&D requires low-volume, functional prototypes and fixtures. This project’s goal was to detect and quantify particulate passing through the carotid artery during coronary surgery. The results were rather stunning and enabled our client to better understand vital program issues.
The HALO® Breast Pap Test is a patented fully automated noninvasive breast disease-screening device for use in physician offices. It is FDA-cleared for the collection of nipple aspirate fluid (NAF) for cytological evaluation. Like the Pap test for cervical cancer, HALO looks for cellular changes years before breast cancer is detectable by mammographic imaging. To learn more about the test and locate a physician who offers it, visit www.neomatrix.com or call (877)-HALOPAP.
The Carnation Ambulatory Monitor is designed to be placed along the sternum – over the heart – to optimize P-wave signal capture, the CAM patch results in improved ECG resolution, providing more information about heart rhythm that may lead to more clinically-actionable diagnoses. Its unique form factor is designed with comfort and satisfaction in mind, with the aim of improving patient compliance. Omnica provided human factors and engineering input to insure installation and removal was intuitive, simple and robust.
The innovative KickTrak by babykick is a non-invasive, handheld device that tracks a baby’s movement patterns, counts down pregnancy progress and reliably tracks the time between contractions to better estimate when labor will begin. KickTrak provides peace of mind to expecting mothers as fetal movement is an important indicator of babies’ health. Pregnant women use kickTrak beginning at 24-28 weeks to record their baby’s movements with the touch of a button.
We developed an intraoral scanner for use by dentists to capture optical impressions of both the soft and hard tissues of the dental arches and digitally transfer them to an interface, lab or a computer monitor for printout and interpretation.
