The challenge

Infectious diseases

With epidemic and pandemic infectious diseases like COVID-19, increased testing capacities are critical for infection control. Since the virus is novel, there is no immunity, no vaccination and no remedy yet.

Waiting for lab results

Following symptom onset and hospital admission, it takes long hours or even days of waiting for lab results to determine the need for patient quarantine.

Risk of infection

Manually handling samples increases the risk of infections for health care professionals analyzing them.

The point-of-care solution to control infectious diseases…

providing results for 72 patients per device right at the patient admission every day. Seven days a week.

Safe

No manual handling of samples needed: Just use your standard swabs and directly insert them into the cartridge. For a better protection of the health care professionals who analyze them.

Simple

No sample prep, no pipetting, no additional reagents: from swab to decision in approximately 35 minutes. Decide on the spot: quarantine or not.

Efficient

Increasing patient safety affordably while cutting costs at the same time. Sounds like a win-win to us.

One player for numerous applications. Introducing the Spindiag platform.

“I think this system particularly makes sense in intermediate care wards. From my own experience, if a patient is admitted to the hospital and the history indicates previous MRSA or 4MRGN, it’s useful to know within half an hour whether I need to isolate the patient and initiate further steps.”

Katrin Reiser, Nurse, Large clinic and specialist clinic for cardiovascular diseases

“In my experience, the system is very useful and very helpful, especially with the functions I saw. It saves a lot of effort and time, in terms of days and beds – just what Spindiag designed it for. The system is a really good idea! I didn’t know this was technically possible. Awesome!”

Emil Benrath, Nurse, University Heart Center, ward for cardiac surgery

“Spindiag´s system makes a lot of sense. I witness it myself: In the hospital, two patients are kept together, and late in the process it turns out that one patient has a pathogen. With such a system, you could recognise much faster: You need to isolate the patient.”

Anonymous, Nurse, Center for Paediatrics and Youth Medicine, University Hospital

“The system is very useful! Since we receive many patients from external hospitals, we must isolate them on arrival. This costs a lot of time and money for everyone. In our case, it is meaningful to get the test result within half an hour.”

Florian Bechtel, Nurse, Public hospital, Intensive Care Unit

“This system makes a lot of sense and saves a lot of work, since you find out in only 30 minutes if the patient needs to be isolated or not!”

Dominik Scheffel, Nurse, District hospital Emmendingen, ward with focus on geriatric early rehabilitative complex treatment

In 2018 we participated in the competition by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT). As a result for being in the final, we presented our company in this video. It shortly explains the downside of today’s situation of antibiotic resistance in hospitals inside of the European Union and the operating principle of our point-of-care system.
