Next Generation Point of Care Diagnostics

Proxim has developed a next generation handheld immuno diagnostic device. It performs the most important laboratory tests near the patient using whole blood without any sacrifice in sensitivity and precision. Our device can also test blood gases, electrolytes and metabolites, infectious disease antigens and antibodies. Special attention was given to the disposable test cartridge, which can be manufactured at a low cost. Proxim’s unique combination of high performance and low cost not only make it ideal for hospital Emergency Departments in the USA but also in other settings around the world.

Proxim Handheld Analyzer

Battery operated. Wireless connectivity. Easy to use touch screen controls. Meeting or exceeding the traditional lab’s quality requirements for detecting heart attacks and other critical cardiac conditions. Clinical sensitivity and speed that complement molecular tests for infectious disease. Expansion into critical care blood gases: O2, CO2 and electrolytes: Na+, K+, Cl-, Ca+² and metabolites: Creatinine, Lactate, Glucose and Urea. Hematocrit. The potential for a wide array of diagnostic information closest to the patient.

Cost per test

The transition from fee-for-service to value based medicine in the US is creating incentives for hospitals to reduce the cost of stay in the ER and ICU. Proxim’s one time use only disposable cartridge manufacturing cost is only a fraction of market leading hand held analyzers. It is also suited to the value based healthcare needs in Europe, China, India and in other regions of the world.

A portable platform for high sensitivity cardiac troponin in the ER

High performance troponin (cTn) tests are available only in laboratories equipped with the latest assays and instrumentation from major industry players like Roche, Abbott, Beckman, and Siemens. The traditional lab testing process takes several hours. With Proxim’s handheld device, such testing takes a matter of minutes. The sooner a heart attack is diagnosed the earlier the patient can be treated by medical staff with lifesaving treatments.

Turnaround Time

High Sensitivity tests enable earlier detection

cTn is a blood biomarker that is measured in patients who present symptoms such as chest pain upon arrival in a hospital emergency department. The guidelines provided by the American Society of Cardiology (ASC) sets the cTn cut off at a level above which a heart attack is may be suspected. The cut off level is the 99th percentile. Only tests that perform at this level of sensitivity with high precision are designated high sensitivity.

Troponin-Curve-3

Precision of Proxim’s cTnI is significantly better than other hand held devices*

Proxim is the only handheld system that meets the ASC guidelines for early detection with high sensitivity and imprecision below 10% CV.

Imprecision Comparison 5

Proxim exceeds the 4th Generation requirement for detecting cTn

It can measure very low picogram per milliliter levels of cTnI in more than half of all healthy people (“normals”).
