The 7DROPS technology

Our technology is based on a multiplex ELISA-based test. Multiplex means that our hardware solutions can process multiple samples in a single analysis run. ELISA stands for enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and refers to the involvement of enzymes (a protein initiating biochemical reactions) and antibodies/antigens in the testing process.  

 

To put it simply: Our technology can process a large batch of samples at once, which is not only time-efficient but also makes it possible to offer our services to a larger audience. The results will give a near complete picture of a patient’s sensitization status.  

 

At present, there are only two multiplex allergy testing systems that allow for the analysis for a broad panel of allergens – our very own 7DROPS technology powered by MADx, and ImmunoCAP’s ISAC, both of which our founder Christian Harwanegg, PhD, played a pivotal role in developing.  

 

By testing close to 300 allergens (178 of those being molecular allergens, 50+ unique to our product) from only 100 microliters of blood serum or plasma, 7DROPS is the undisputed leader in molecular immunodiagnostics.
