About AmpCrystal(R) Technology

AmpCrystal(R), SuperNova Diagnostics' lead technology with multiple
product formats, allows for minimally trained individuals (advanced
CLIA-waived) to test for a wide range of protein analytes and can detect
directly un-amplified DNA in humans, animals or environmental samples.
AmpCrystal(R) is hyper-dense, energy-mediated proprietary nanocrystals that
can be utilised in a wide variety of diagnostic applications and
configurations. The technology platform lends itself to both
forward-integration into new product formats as well as backward compatible
into existing open and closed diagnostic systems.

Time-to-result has been shown in prototypes to be reduced to minutes on
the spot versus the hours or days required when sending samples to a central
laboratory or processing in regional satellite laboratories. With three
integrated capabilities (sample collector/processor, analytical disposable,
and the readout device), the technology is simpler, more robust, faster and
significantly less expensive than existing POC systems.
