Toronto, ON -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/17/2015 -- ChroMedX Corp. (the "Company"), a developer of in vitro diagnostics and point-of-care testing (POCT) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a collaboration with Dr. Leyla Soleymani of the Biointerface Institute of McMaster University and received an Engage Grant from NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada) to further HemoPalmTM biosensor development.
Dr. Soleyemani's work will focus on novel biosensor technology which has the potential to both reduce the cost of the HemoPalmTM biosensors as well as broaden the scope of the types of analytes which can be measured.
The McMaster and ChroMedX partnership has been awarded an NSERC Engage Grant which is funded by NSERC (Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada).
"We are pleased to be working with Dr. Soleymani on this project. Her novel approach to sensor technology holds great promise for us. In addition this relationship with the Biointerface Institute broadens and enhances an already significant relationship with McMaster University. We also thank NSERC for awarding this grant which will be of benefit to the development of Canadian medical technology"
Dr. Leyla Soleymani is an Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering Physics . Her specific area of research is the development of biosensors for Point-of-care applications. Her sensors feature high surface area which has the potential to enhance response and accuracy of the HemoPalmTM system.
"I am excited to be working with the ChroMedX team on their novel HemoPalmTM Point-of-care system" said Dr. Soleymani, Assistant Professor, Biointerfaces Institute, McMaster University
