Frost & Sullivan Award Highlights the Immense Potential of Radisens's Integrated Point-of-Care Diagnostic Platform

- Radisens's single connected multi-diagnostic device represents a highly effective tool to combat rising chronic disease management costs

LONDON, Nov. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the integrated point-of-care (POC) diagnostic platforms market, Frost & Sullivan recognises Radisens Diagnostics Limited with the 2012 European Technology Innovation Award. Realising the onward surge to integrate POC instruments covering multiple blood test categories, Radisens is developing a single connected multi-diagnostic device, based on its proprietary technology, for long-term chronic disease management.

"Radisens's miniaturised POC device and consumable platform integrates different combinations of multiplexed high-sensitivity immunoassays, clinical chemistries, and haematology (cell counting) assays onto single consumable panels," explained Frost & Sullivan Healthcare Industry Analyst Prasanna Vadhana Kannan. "These panels initially target long-term chronic disease management of thyroid disorders, chronic diabetes, cardiovascular disease, chronic kidney disease, and cell counting."

This single device thereby effectively replaces the ten to fifteen stand-alone instruments that a physician would typically require for routine blood testing. Moreover, the interpretation of lab-grade data is instantaneous. All sample preparation and blood testing procedures are integrated into the test panel, thereby enabling accurate, highly sensitive, repeatable, sample-to-answer and quality assured results.

"Radisens's technology platform is truly considered disruptive," added Kannan. "It seamlessly converges consumer electronics, centrifugal microfluidics, and assay development to achieve smart decentralisation of medical diagnostics from a central reference laboratory into POC settings."

This platform requires only a finger prick of blood and can deliver clinical results within minutes of blood draw. Through this approach, patients are more likely to improve prescription compliance and, in turn, significantly contribute toward a reduction in the risk factors for chronic disorders. This will impart healthcare systems globally with a much needed tool to combat rising chronic disease management costs.

Notable features that distinguish Radisens's solution from other competing POC devices in the market include: all assay and sample preparation steps integrated onto a consumable panel, central reference laboratory performance, solid-state digital detection, analyte microanalysis algorithms, and, a single integrated device platform capable of multiplexed diagnostics across the three primary blood test categories of immunoassays, clinical chemistries and cell counting.

"Overall, the potential for Radisens's diagnostic platform based on its real-time connectivity, sample-to-answer operation, high-degree of multiplexing, and low cost features is immense and is poised to revolutionise the integrated POC diagnostics market," concluded Kannan.

The platform is expected to be launched in the market in 2014 upon CE regulatory approval, followed by a US launch after FDA 510(k) regulatory approval.

Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in terms of the uniqueness of its technology and its potential impact on new products/applications, on functionality and on customer value. The company is also commended for the relevance of this innovation to industry.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

About Radisens Diagnostics Limited

Based in the Rubicon Centre, Cork, Radisens Diagnostics is breaking new ground in the decentralisation of routine blood testing from central reference laboratories into GP surgeries, outpatient clinics, hospital bedsides and other point-of-care settings. With a finger-prick of blood, this diagnostic device returns laboratory-grade results within minutes during a patient's GP visit.

Radisens's applications concentrate on chronic disease management – the monitoring of chronic conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, kidney and thyroid function, and cell counting, amongst others; all with a single portable analyser. With instant readout, this patented technology will remove the many anxious days or even weeks of waiting for routine blood test results, thus providing better patient care, significantly reducing healthcare costs and introducing much needed efficiencies into healthcare systems worldwide.
