Integrated photonic biosensors: leading the path to point-of-care diagnostics

biosensors

Presentation by Maarten Buijs, Roadmap and Program Consultant at PhotonDelta.

Rapid and cost-effective diagnostics at the point of care has been pursued for decades, but so far only little progress has been achieved. This became painfully apparent with the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Half a laboratory reduced to fit a picnic table

Highly economical, very inexpensive and much smaller; these are the key characteristics of optical chips. By employing optical circuitry, measuring systems that currently fill half a laboratory can be reduced in size to fit on a picnic table or even slip into a jacket pocket. XiO Photonics has been working with light-manipulating chips for years. The company, based in Enschede, the Netherlands, has a whole library full of solutions based on photonic building blocks and produces applications for the medical and food industries, as well as for Life Sciences, among others.
