 Project objective

CandidaHunter is the latest diagnostic innovation of Matriks Biotek®, owing to its years of expertise on medical biotechnology. The company has already developed and commercialized many diagnostic kits distributed over 37 countries around the world. This time Matriks Biotek targets Candidiasis, a fungal infection affecting roughly a million of people each year, making it the 4th leading cause of hospital infections. The mortality rate of 40% associated with the disease shows there is still much to improve in antifungal therapy.

The Challenge The most crucial need in Candidiasis treatment is fast diagnosis. Blood culture is the gold standard assay for Candidiasis diagnosis but can only detect 50% of the cases within 3 to 5 days. Delayed treatment and undiagnosed cases lead to dissemination of the disease and cause severe infections in internal organs.

Our Solution Matriks Biotek introduces CandidaHunter as a fast blood culture medium to detect Candidiasis in bloodstream. Enhancing the golden standard with nanotechnology, CandidaHunter offers an increased detection sensitivity of 80% and a much shorter diagnosis period of 24 hours.

The Opportunity Factors like high incidence of infections, rising demand for fast diagnostic tests, aging population as well as advancements in medical technology always make newer and better solutions highly sought after. Considering its unique features, Matriks Biotek believes CandidaHunter will easily make a name for itself all around the world. Culture based technologies have the largest share in the diagnostic market due to the extensive usage of conventional blood culture media. By commercializing it on global scale, Matriks Biotek aims to benefit from CandidaHunter with its potential leverage effects and apply its capabilities to a new market.

Matriks Biotek is an R&D intensive SME established in 2002 with a main focus on therapeutic drug monitoring and immunogenicity detection.
