mFluiDx

In decentralized clinics, highly sensitive molecular DNA tests (PCR) are not often used because of cost and slow turnaround time. mFluiDx is a UC Berkeley startup developing low-cost microfluidic diagnostic chips capable of on-site multi-target DNA/RNA detection of infectious diseases with simple operation and ~100X lower cost than PCR setups. We aim to create assays that can be deployed in decentralized settings, are as simple and cheap as paper tests, yet have molecular-level sensitivity for onsite diagnosis.
