News Jan 06, 2012
Quanterix is developing and manufacturing a fully-automated instrument and low cost consumables for use in both the life sciences and in vitro diagnostics (IVD) markets. SiMoA, which has been validated in multiple published journal articles, will facilitate direct and non-amplified detection of pathogens to obtain a level of sensitivity that could previously only be achieved with amplification methods.
"The ability to accurately detect the presence of low abundance molecules makes Quanterix technology a critical addition to our strategic investment portfolio," stated Syd Ulvick, Ph.D., Vice President, Physical and Biological Technologies practice at IQT. "The Quanterix SiMoA platform offers great promise for applications in both the private and public sectors."
"We are delighted to have In-Q-Tel as a strategic investor and partner, and view this investment as a validation of our technological capabilities," said Martin Madaus, Ph.D., Quanterix Chairman and CEO. "We are excited to initiate this partnership to expand our platform capabilities to include novel applications that address the needs of the Intelligence Community."
