Pathogen Identification of Wounds Via Bead-Based Multiplexing
Small Business Information
P.O. Box 2607, Winnetka, CA, -
AbstractArete Associates and Luminex Corporation propose to leverage Luminex"s award-winning bead-based multiplexing technology with Arete"s decision-theoretic processing algorithms to develop a portable, Point-of-Care (POC) system that enables rapid identification of known and de novo pathogens. Our solution combines Luminex"s high multiplexing capability, a low cost optical imaging system, and innovative assay design optimizations, to create a portable and sensitive POC system. The assay design optimizations will include consideration of host response and/or genetic factors and detection theoretic calculations. The comprehension of host response and/or genetic factors offers the additional potential benefit to further improve wound treatment
