NEDxA, commercialized by Genomica

Institute for Bioengineering of Catalonia (IBEC)

The Nano Electronic Diagnostic Array (NEDxA) is the result of the Joint Research Unit between IBEC’s Nanobioengineering group, led by Josep Samitier, and Genomica S.A.U. (Grupo Zeltia), the leading Spanish company in molecular diagnostics.

NEDxA-HPV is a new in vitro diagnostics device for Human Papillomavirus (HPV) testing, a new product that carries out analysis to detect HPV in a cheap, quick and convenient desktop device.

This is a milestone in the history of Genomica that transcends for the first time from its well-established CLART technology to present a revolutionary molecular diagnostics device. IBEC and Genomica will continue this fruitful collaboration to bring more new products in the market.

Designed, developed and manufactured to perform complex laboratory analysis in any testing environment, NEDxA integrates all the processes in a single device, providing a fast, easy, specific and sensitive platform for molecular diagnostics. is used to detect and genotype all high risk human Papilomavirus subtypes. NEDxA reduces the workflow to just one step delivering a true walk-away solution suitable for non-specialized personnel. Using test-specific disposable cartridges, NEDxA is a closed system which does not require any sample preparation, set up or calibration procedure.
