Advance biosensor platform for real-time medical diagnostics

Diagnostics Difficulties

One of the most challenging objectives faced by modern medicine is timely, rapid, and accurate diagnostics of diseases, and in particular infectious diseases.

To deliver accurate and consistent results every step of the molecular diagnostics workflow from sample collection to amplification and reporting requires rigorous and reliable processes, procedures, tools and trained professionals.

The issues facing global economies with COVID-19 testing are not unique to this virus (SARS-CoV-2). There are numerous other pathogens and diseases that are facing the same challenges.

HiPic Objective

    We are committed to the detection and diagnosis of biological agents through our innovative, portable, and sensitive biosensor platform to deliver precision results in less than 60 seconds.


Shaping the Future of Diagnostics

    A patient needs to go to point-of-care.
    A lab technician needs to collect samples.
    Laboratories are required for high sensitivity sample analysis.

    Point-of-Care will go to the patient.
    Patient is empowered to collect samples accurately.
    High sensitivity results no longer require laboratories.

Ideal Solution

To successfully re-open the economy and meet the demand for millions of tests daily, the ideal diagnostics and testing platform must be capable of the following:

    PORTABLE - Point-of-Care device must be portable so it can expand diagnosis beyond health care facilities to patient’s location.

    SENSITIVITY - It must exhibit high sensitivity through a small sample of saliva without the need for lab amplification.

    COST - Cost of testing must drop to a point that individuals if required, can take the test daily.

    ACCURACY – Operate with a high level of accuracy every time.

    RAPID – Results must be displayed near real-time.



Beyond the current pandemic, HiPic’s biosensor device can be used to detect a variety of biomolecules.

HiPic Portable device is ideal for day-to-day testing at workplaces, schools, airports, sports & entertainment venues, etc.

Our Portable device and testing platform is ideal for Drugs of Abuse screening market.
