AXO Science is a French SME specialized in the development of high-throughput and multiplexed microarray diagnostic solutions dedicated to the characterization of biological samples.
By combining latest spotting techniques, fully robotized platform and new optical reading systems, AXO Science HIFI Technology opened a new era in the large scale screening of several parameters for numerous patients.
AXO Science patented HIFI Technology brings tremendous innovation to molecular based diagnostic applications. By combining latest spotting techniques, fully robotized platform and new optical reading systems, AXO Science HIFI Technology opened a new era in the large scale screening of several parameters for numerous patients.
Multiplexed assays bring the ability to profile multiple molecules from a single sample, in a single assay and are the next generation of bioanalytical systems. They offer many advantages: generate more information on interrelationships between related analytes within a sample with better correlation; decrease precious sample volume requirement ; reduce assay reagent, expense and labor.
Created in 2010, AXO Science gathers highly experienced individuals with various scientific backgrounds in molecular biology, in vitro diagnostic, chemistry, microarray, nanomedecine and robotics, as well as business and customer service expertise. Today AXO Science employs eight highly qualified peoples. AXO Science overall goal is to contribute to improving public health by releasing innovative diagnostic solutions. Headquarters and scientific laboratories are located in Lyon, France.
Role in the project:
AXO Science bioanalytical laboratory comprises all the recent biochemistry, molecular biology, and automated liquid handler equipment necessary to achieve this project. It consists into a platform of two TECAN EV0 100 microplate handlers dedicated to R&D activities. Notably, a microarraying production facility is up and running: a microarrayer Scienion S3 in a clean room controlled environment (ISO 7 – Certified) specially designed for AXO Science microarraying developments. The main goal is to convert projects IVD innovations into successful product, using expertise in automation of multiplexed tests.
Scientific Manager and involved team:
The responsible of the project for AXO Science is Benjamin CORGIER PhD, Research and Development Manager at AXO Science since 2011.
Benjamin CORGIER owns a Doctorate in Biochemistry (2007) from the University Claude Bernard-Lyon 1. He spent two years at McGill Unversity, Montréal, Canada where he worked on academic research projects in the biomedical engineering department. He then specialised into microfabrication technologies for biosensing applications and proteomic. He is now AXO Science R&D manager, taking in charge the laboratory, both for R&D and production of CE-IVD kits, achieving the latest researches into effective IVD products. Since 2005, Dr CORGIER has been the author and co-author of 18 publications and an international patent. Since 2008, he has also been the coordinator of one international and two national funded researches projects.
