Boston, MAMarch 30, 2022

binx health, a healthcare technology and diagnostics company is pleased to announce its selection as a finalist in the Medical Design Excellence Awards 2022. The Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) is the premier awards program for the medtech industry with a mission to recognize significant achievements in medical product design and engineering that improve the quality of healthcare delivery and accessibility. “We are honored to be included in the esteemed list of MDEA 2022 finalists,” said Anna Dixon, CTO of binx health. “The binx io was developed with the healthcare consumer in mind. We wanted to create a solution that would improve efficiency and productivity of point-of-care testing, simplify infrastructure, processes and procedures, and reduce cost by decreasing sample packaging and transport.”

Being chosen as a finalist for the MDEAs is a remarkable accomplishment. Finalists are selected by a panel of industry experts, including designers, engineers, and clinicians. binx health’s io was selected as a finalist in the "Testing and Diagnostic Products and Systems" category. binx health's FDA-cleared, CLIA-waived io platform is the first ever molecular, point-of-care test for the detection of chlamydia and gonorrhea for both men and women that provides central lab performance results in about thirty minutes. The versatile and extensible platform offers molecular point-of-care results, enabling single-visit test and treatment.

For patients who seek care at physical locations, and when their priority is speed of result, the binx io provides rapid testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea at pharmacies, clinics and at venues with a CLIA certificate of waiver, at performance levels equivalent to tests performed in central laboratories. The binx io platform tests for chlamydia and gonorrhea for both asymptomatic and symptomatic patients using a urine sample for men and a self- or clinician-collected vaginal swab sample for women. The binx io offers the potential to improve health and economic outcomes by enabling single-visit, onsite diagnosis and treatment for chlamydia and gonorrhea.
The category winners and best-in-show recipient will be announced on April 7 on mddionline.com. Browse the list of MDEA 2022 finalists here.
