Physicians are searching for cost-effective solutions in point-of-care testing (POCT) to offer patients faster and more responsive service.
CapWave meets that need with SearchlightTM, an optical sensor testing device that is sensitive to 0.1 pg/mL.
The biosensor immunoassay platform uses small capillaries that act as an optical waveguide. The small tubes increase the reaction kinetics to create fast and accurate results. Once the sample has been prepared and placed in the cartridge, the Searchlight device produces a result in 22 minutes or less.
The CapWave technology is currently in development with plans to create a CLIA-waived device.
We welcome the input and guidance of innovative physicians intrigued by this breakthrough product. From your thoughts on what features and assays you would like to see developed to beta testing or serving as an advisor we want to hear from you.

The Need for Smaller Sample Sizes
In the June 10 issue of IVD Technology, a feature article discusses the need for smaller samples, pointing out that the IVD standard sample size of 100 µL is becoming obsolete.
Smaller is faster and more efficient. Advances in microfuidics are creating new opportunities in IVD.
CapWave embraces both trends with a platform that uses small capillaries for sample testing and innovative thermal control units that move fluids through phase shifts in temperature that require no moving parts.
