UK Sport to Use Hand-Held Device to Track Biomarkers in Elite Athletes
Argento Diagnostics created the portable device, which uses nanotechnology to analyze the sample
Argento Diagnostics’ proprietary hand-held device provides a quick diagnosis from a single sample (e.g., blood, saliva) to reveal real-time data about the body and how it performed during a training regimen. The sample is mixed with silver nanoparticles covered with an antibody against the biomarker, which is indicative of the condition being tested for. The test can also identify injuries or medical conditions, allowing for immediate medical intervention before long-term damage occurs in the athlete. This is Argento’s first commercialization contract.
