Rapid and Simple Microorganism Analysis
Clinical Microbiology Tests
BioMedomics uses advances in chemistry and technology to improve current methods of microscopic analysis and make the identification of microorganisms simpler, easier, faster, and more accurate. Our focus is on microorganisms and pathogens of global concern, and our solutions consider communities and environments impacted the most by these diseases.
Fungi SCAN™ All-In-One Stain
BioMedomics Fungi SCAN is the world’s first all-in-one fungal staining reagent to combine the ease-of-use of potassium hydroxide (KOH) with the improved visualization of fluorescence to rapidly detect fungal infections. The staining reagent binds to fungal cell walls, allowing any fungi on skin, nail, or hair samples to emit fluorescence easily viewable with a fluorescent microscope. The all-in-one stain makes microscopic fungi analysis fast, easy and accurate.
Research & Development
BioMedomics scientists are using expertise in bioconjugation and antibody design to create microbiology products that will help clinicians identify different types of microorganisms and therefore determine the best course of treatment. Unique antibody design combined with certain types of staining reagents show great promise for the analysis and treatments of many different types of diseases, and we are dedicated to identifying and creating clinical microbiology solutions that make analysis faster and simpler.
We Help Diagnose
Fungi are primitive microorganisms present everywhere in the environment, and commonly occur in nature in the form of yeast or mold. Human exposure is inevitable, but only about half of all types of fungi are harmful. Some fungi produce spores which can invade human tissue either through the skin or by inhalation. A weakened immune system makes you more susceptible to fungal infections, which range from a superficial, localized skin condition to a serious lung, blood, or systemic disease. Superficial infections include yeast infections, jock itch, athlete’s foot, barber’s itch, and scalp, hair, and nail infections. Most superficial fungal infections are easily treated with proper diagnosis and medications. But if left untreated, some superficial fungal infections can spread to the blood or lungs, significantly increasing health risks.
