Medical molecular diagnostics system

A platform which confirms or denies whether the patient is suffering a certain disease. The platform is easy to use with little interaction. It returns with the outcome within 2½ hours. The platform is an alternative for culturing human sample material.

The platform consists of an instrument and a disposable cartridge. The human sample is placed in the cartridge were after the cartridge is irreversibly closed. Sample material cannot escape the cartridge. The container is positioned in the instrument. The sample material is fully automated processed, without leaving the cartridge. After processing, a small portion of the sample is located in specific chambers in the cartridge equipped with biomarkers. The diagnose is based at the results of a spectrometry analysis at the samples in these chambers. After the diagnose has been made the cartridge is being destroyed still carrying the human sample.
