Q-POC™: The Handheld Laboratory


The Future of malaria diagnosis

Our FP7 European Union funded NanoMal Consortium is developing a handheld laboratory that will deliver complex malaria diagnostics in minutes for a few dollars in any setting across the globe.

Making malaria elimination possible

Our handheld laboratory will provide frontline healthworkers with the definitive tool to diagnose,
manage and monitor malaria and drug resistance.

  • Results in 10-15 minutes
  • Malaria diagnosis & drug resistance testing
  • Directs right first time prescribing
  • Handheld, user friendly, low cost
  • Mobile data connection

The Nanomal Consortium partners are: 
St George's University London | QuantuMDx Group | The Karolinska Insititute | Tubingen University.

QuantuMDx attended Arab Health in Dubai

We were struck by the energy of the place. We had preliminary discussions with several large multinational electronics companies regarding their digital health information solutions, and hope that further discussion with them will help to shape our vision for the Internet of Life. We were particularly impressed by the many forward-thinking private hospitals in attendance who understand the benefits of point of care not only to the bottom line but also to patient outcomes. We look forward to being part of the event next year, and returning to Dubai’s indoor ski slope!

FIND and QuantuMDx partnering to developing breakthrough technology for tuberculosis detection and drug resistance determination

FIND, a Geneva-based non-profit organization and QuantuMDx Group, a British medical device developer are joining forces in developing a paradigm changing solution for the combined detection of and drug susceptibility determination for the causative agent for tuberculosis. Based on the molecular detection of an extensive set of genetic markers by the simple handheld Q-POC™ device developed by QuantuMDx, the time for full antimycobacterial resistance profiling will be reduced from weeklong to less than half an hour.

QuantuMDx announce prototype handheld lab for 15 minute DNA-based diagnosis

At the TEDMED 2014 conference, medical device developers QuantuMDx Group announced the successful production of their first fully-integrated sample-to-result working prototype of Q-POC™, a handheld lab that delivers your DNA-based medical diagnosis in minutes. The Group believes the future of disease management and drug resistance monitoring is networked geo-stamped data, a functionality provided by the handheld Q-POC™ device. Rapid and low cost testing will enable continuous monitoring of disease and antimicrobial resistance throughout populations, as well as surveillance for emerging novel pathogen threats such as Ebola.
