Understanding the importance and need for simple, near patient molecular diagnostic tools for early and accurate disease diagnostics, MolbioDiagnostics (P) Ltd. has partnered with Bigtec Labs to commercialize the Truelab™ real time quantitative micro PCR system.
About Bigtec Labs
Driven by the urgent need to provide world-class medical infrastructure in India and make it more affordable and accessible, Bigtec Labs was founded in 2000 with the vision of transforming healthcare. At Bigtec Labs we use innovative techniques to create and bring together various academic disciplines under a common umbrella to provide a viable approach to tackling current and urgent needs in modern day medicine.
Bigtec Labs' development of microfluidic devices to detect pathogens on-chip is an instance of the interplay of diverse disciplines to realize a product addressing a key need in healthcare. In response to the need for simple, user friendly, point-of-care molecular tests, Bigtec Labs has developed a portable microPCR device using state of the art MEMS technology. The microPCR system (Truelab™) is a portable, light weight, real-time Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) based nucleic acid detection device, operated using a re-chargeable battery power source. The device uses a disposable microchip with pre-loaded, room temperature stabilized PCR reagents - enabling the user to just add the purified nucleic acid sample and run the test.
