Biomarkers

Molecular Level Sensors

The detection of minuscule amounts of toxins, proteins, DNA or chemicals is increasingly possible using advanced nano-materials. The Gentag biomarkers platform is covered by 93 issued or approved patents (held in our patent holding company Altivera, LLC). Gentag is working with some of the leaders in microelectronics and biosensors to develop printable cutting-edge molecular level sensors.

Our genome is constantly interacting with an ever-changing environment, and smartphones can now provide a new interface.

Disposable NFC Lab-on-a-Chip

NFC can be combined with lab-on-a-chip technology to create a powerful new platform for on-the-spot diagnostics with cell phones. The technology can be used for advanced protein detection, DNA analyses, or drug delivery.

Disposable NFC Immunoassays

Disposable immunoassays – diagnostic tests for proteins that correspond to specific allergens, infectious diseases, and even cancerous cells – can be combined with custom disposable NFC wireless chips to allow rapid, on-the-go testing using mobile devices. Gentag’s proprietary technology will enable the use of printable, battery-less wireless immunoassays that can be read directly with cell phones.

Modular Sensors for Phones

Gentag has a number of groundbreaking patents covering the uses of interchangeable, person-specific chemical sensor modules in cell phones for threat and allergen detection. Using a patented Gentag “reverse e-nose” technology, a mobile device can be trained to recognize the environmental factors that trigger asthma or an allergic reaction in a given individual, allowing the creation of truly personalized genomic devices.
