Mobile molecular laboratory
In the field. At the Point-of-Care. Anywhere.
Our fully customizable mobile laboratory is designed to enable performing the full diagnostic workflow independent of the infrastructure. It is especially well suited for working at the Point-of-Care. That means, after sampling you can immediately perform nucleic acid extraction and detection. Our mobile laboratory does not only fit in a suitcase - it actually is a suitcase!
The suitcase-sized mobile laboratory is the ideal solution for field work in remote locations, for example, to enable the on-site diagnosis and timely treatment of neglected tropical diseases in endemic regions during screening campaigns. In addition, it may also be used for swift detection and management of outbreaks of new or re-emerging pathogens. In fact, a portable laboratory based on a similar concept has been succesfully applied for the rapid diagnosis of Ebola in a field trial in Guinea.
If you think "point-of-care", remote field work will probably pop-up in your mind at first. But it is much more than that! Our mobile laboratory will also serve you well in screening campaigns for infectious diseases at international airports, or even at the patient's bedside when time-to-result is critical and results are required straight away. The possibilities are endless...

The following publications reference a mobile laboratoty used by Dr. Ahmed Abd El Wahed's group at the Institute for Animal Hygiene and Veterinary Public Health at the University of Leipzig, Germany. Even though it is not the same as ours, it is based on a similar concept, therefore the applicability of both models are compatable.
