Opticul developed the Optidet® device that can identify microorganisms immediately from primary culture plate, at the clinical lab, within minutes after applying the sample on the disposable/removable unit.
Future products that are under development include:
1. Optidet Multi, A flexible expandable device for high volume laboratories. The device can have multi comparments, attached sequecially.
2. A point of care device for bacteria detection in wounds and burns.
Opticul's technology is based on absorption spectroscopy combined with a proprietary device design, optical removable or disposable cell, and classification algorithms.
It enables the identification of small quantities of microbs (1-3 CFU) from a primary culture dish, within a couple of minutes. Opticul's devices comprised of two parts: (a) the main unit which performs the measurement and analysis and is the size of a table top printer; and (b) a disposable optical cell which accommodates the sample and is the size of a stethoscope chest piece.
