io® system
for clinical point of care

The io system

Accurate results in about 30 minutes. Right where they matter most.

The io Diagnostic System, consists of a small, easy-to-use instrument (io Instrument) designed to be easy to use and test-specific, and disposable cartridges (io Cartridge), designed to provide accurate, actionable test results in around 30 minutes.

The io System is a true platform technology capable of detecting a broad range of infectious diseases. Our initial focus is in the area of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), where there is a clear clinical need for rapid, on-demand testing to expedite appropriate treatment, improve patient care, and reduce onward transmission of infection.

Delivering molecular accuracy

Healthcare professionals are under increasing financial pressures and are constantly striving to improve efficiency while maintaining a patient-centered approach to care. The binx io system is a rapid molecular diagnostic platform designed to detect the presence of infectious diseases, such as STIs, where an actionable test result delivered at the Point-of-Care can significantly improve patient outcomes by enabling a – test and treat – solution, avoiding delays in treatment and the need for unnecessary follow-up appointments.

The io system is operated using an intuitive touchscreen display, with a barcode scanner and POCT1-A connectivity for error-free sample-to-result traceability.

Fast

Providing a “test and treat” solution, enabling immediate treatment of positive patients with the appropriate therapy, improving compliance, reducing onward transmission, lowering the risk of treatment failure and further complications, and improving antibiotic stewardship.

Accurate

Designed to deliver molecular accuracy equivalent to central laboratory analyzers in about 30 minutes while providing healthcare professionals with actionable test results.

Simple

No sample processing, quick set-up and walkaway operation minimizes the burden on healthcare staff. Results are provided as clear, unambiguous text, no analysis or interpretation required.

Technology & test process

The io system utilizes binx health’s proprietary electrochemical detection technology which offers highly sensitive detection and multiplexing capacity, without many of the issues associated with optical detection technologies, to provide a low cost, durable instrument that requires no maintenance or calibration.

The test process consists of a number of steps that occur on board the io Cartridge under complete io Instrument control. The instrument transports the sample around the cartridge using pneumatics. All reagents required to perform the test are located on the cartridge as either contained liquid reagents or as dried reagents deposited into the appropriate area of the cartridge.

The io system utilizes binx health’s proprietary electrochemical detection technology, which offers highly sensitive detection and multiplexing capacity, and are reconstituted as the sample enters the area containing the deposited reagent. Following completion of the test process, the io Cartridge is permanently sealed automatically by the io Instrument to eliminate contamination and enable safe disposal. An internal process control verifies every test result, delivering trusted results.
