The Dxcover Platform for Detection of Cancer
We have successfully completed two ground breaking studies on earlier diagnosis of brain cancer, and we are currently developing our platform for the detection of commonly occurring cancers.
How does it work?
The Dxcover platform combines novel hardware with artificial intelligence algorithms to analyse a patient's blood and detect the presence or absence of disease.
Dxcover® Sample Slide
Sample is dropped onto a disposable Dxcover Slide and dried for analysis.
Dxcover® Indexing Unit
The indexer unit enables rapid infrared analysis of the sample.
The Dxcover Platform detects the presence or absence of disease in minutes.
A drop of blood serum is dried on a Dxcover® Slide and analysed with infrared light. Data is captured from all the vital components, including the body’s response to disease. The Artificial Intelligence algorithm provides a result in minutes.
