io® System

The io® diagnostic system, consists of a small, easy-to-use instrument (io® Instrument) and test-specific, disposable cartridges (io® Cartridge), providing accurate, actionable test results in around 30 minutes.

Whilst the io® system is a true platform technology, capable of detecting a broad range of infectious diseases, the company’s 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 management and reduce onward transmission of infection.

Atlas Genetics is creating a new category of in vitro diagnostics designed for decentralized Point-­of-­Care (POC) testing for everyone. With routine testing rapidly moving from the “hub” to the “spokes,” Atlas’s io® platform is poised to benefit from this growing trend in decentralized testing. The company’s proprietary technology platform positions Atlas in the vanguard of the rapidly evolving and increasingly patient-directed landscape of consumer diagnostics, where convenience, rapid “test and treat,” and portability of platform are becoming critical to success. Atlas aims to meet patients where they are and improve patient outcomes by arming healthcare professionals with a simple-­to-­use, rapid and cost-­effective solution for on-­demand diagnosis of infectious diseases. A sample-answer time of around 30 mins, high accuracy and low cost are hallmarks of the company’s broad platform for a broad range of infectious diseases.
