Biotype’s testing methods are used in the Modaplex platform. These testing kits made in Dresden are capable of verifying up to 50 different molecular targets simultaneously.
The Modaplex platform is an important application in personalized medicine because people react differently to medications, which sometimes can be attributed to genetic disposition. Improved understanding of these reactions helps doctors find the suitable therapy for severe diseases like lung and colon cancers. With the technology, doctors can select an effective treatment while at the same time avoid unnecessary stress and burden on the patient.

Furthermore, these test kits are capable of quickly and accurately detecting various pathogens – bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites – even before symptoms occur in the patient. This makes early treatment with suitable therapy possible and could mean the difference between life and death.

In addition, the Modaplex platform can be used in the development of new medications as well as the monitoring and control of food.
