The Company

Who we are

Diaxxo AG, founded in 2020, is a spin-off of the Functional Materials Laboratory (FML) of ETH Zürich.

We envision a future where precise and reliable diagnostics can be accessed anywhere by anyone.
We believe that thanks to our Point-Of-Care PCR tests, doctors will be able to identify and fight diseases faster,
and experts will be able to perform much DNA analysis in a shorter time.

Our mission is to enable DNA analyses to be widely diffused and adopted by making them accurate, fast and affordable.

Quality

Quality is our priority. As your results are only as good as your detection technique.

Teamwork

Team work is our strenght and philosophy as it takes two flints to make a fire.

Passion

Passion is our driving force as nothing great can be accomplished without it.

Founders

It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen.

Dr. Michele Gregorini

Founder and CEO

A PhD spent building all sort of devices, in particular this pyramid-shaped PCR machine that will change the way DNA analyses are performed!

Dr. Philippe Bechtold

Founder and CTO


DNA analysis is his thing. Philippe has made so many different test kits that he can now test anything!

    Covid Variants

    diaxxoPod (RUO)

    Description

    Our in-vitro diagnostic test cartridge based on rapid Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplification technology. This cartridge can reliably detect and distinguish the mutants from UK (20I/501Y.V1, B.1.1.7 – VOC-202012/01) as well as the South African mutation (B.1.351 lineage).

    The test cartridge is aimed to improve the public health situation by rapidly enabling the detection of variants of concern. The cartridge is designed for qualitative detection of variants of interest of the SARS-CoV-2 Viral RNA in saliva samples and it works in conjuction with diaxxoPCR.

    Specs

    • Fully preloaded and only require addition of purified sample
    • Results in approx. 30 minutes

    Workflow

    The test cartridges are sold with all the necessary reagents pre-loaded in the reaction wells. The use of the test cartridges is therefore extremely simple:

    • Apply the sample (viral RNA)
    • Apply water in the control wells and the cover fluid
    • Insert the cartrdige in diaxxoPCR, press a button, drink a coffee and check your results.

    Notes & Instructions

    • The cartridges are supplied in a vacuum-sealed bag in order to ensure a long shelf life at room temperature.
    • Detailed instructions about how to use the cartridges and the devices are provided

    SARS-CoV-2

    diaxxoPod

    Description

    This SARS-CoV-2 cartridge is based on the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) RT-PCR test for 2019-nCoV. The assay detects 2 parts of the N gene specific for Sars-CoV-2. In addition, an extraction control for Human RNAse P is also included. The cartridge is designed to work in combination with saliva samples and in conjuction with our diaxxoPCR.

    Specs

    • Functionally validated and confirmed template-free to cycle 45 by NTC testing
    •  Fully preloaded and only require addition of purified DNA/RNA
    • Results within 30 minutes

    Workflow

    The test cartridges are sold with all the necessary reagents pre-loaded in the reaction wells. The use of the test cartridges is therefore extremely simple:

    • Apply the sample (viral RNA)
    • Apply water in the control wells and the cover fluid
    • Insert the cartrdige in diaxxoPCR, press a button, drink a coffee and check your results.

    Notes & Instructions
