with no confusion.
We feel strongly about the value of early diagnosis that we are innovating over and over again to help deliver it.
Our mission at MARK-B™ platform is to change medical environment by providing affordable and accurate diagnostics in a compact platform designed for use in qualified labs in low volume settings.
Using our proprietary electro-chemistry based technology, we’ve enabled point of care blood testing, so that healthcare professionals can access real-time, lab-quality results within minutes. By putting a lab in their hands, healthcare professionals have the information they need to make treatment decisions sooner, saving precious time. This can help lead to enhanced quality of care for you and your family.
With these solutions, we continue to impact areas of immediate care, from the intensive care unit to the the emergency room.

“Evaluation of MARK-B™ for Quantitative Measurement of Three Tumor Markers:
Prostate Specific Antigen, Alpha Fetoprotein, and Carcinoembryonic Antigen”
Tumor marker assays have played a crucial role for screening cancers and monitoring cancer patients, as they reflect the status and prognosis of patients. Alpha fetoprotein (AFP), prostate specific antigen (PSA), and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) are the most commonly used tumor marker proteins. The MARK B™ immunoassay system is a novel platform based on magnetic nanoparticles and electrochemical immunoassay. read

“MESIA: Magnetic force-assisted electrochemical sandwich immunoassays
for quantification of prostate-specific antigen in human serum”
We propose a new immunoassay technique, called magnetic-force assisted electrochemical sandwich immunoassay (MESIA), where serum biomarkers can be determined by magnetic actuation and electrochemical detection of gold-coated iron oxide nanoparticles as probes for immunocomplex formation. In MESIA, neither washing buffer nor fluidic parts are necessary, because the formation of immunocomplexes and the removal of unbound probes are controlled by magnetic forces. read

“Magnetic force assisted electrochemical sensor for the detection of thrombin
with aptamer-antibody sandwich formation”
A magnetic force assisted electrochemical aptamer-antibody sandwich assay(MESA) was developed for the detection of thrombin as a model protein in serum samples. The MESA using the formation of sandwich complexes on the electrochemical sensor probe for reaction and the removal of unbound bioconjugates from the sensor surface without washing are controlled by a magnetic field. read
