Dolomite Microfluidics

UK-based company Mologic is a leading developer of rapid response diagnostic tests for diseases such as malaria and Ebola virus disease. Clients include the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, where Mologic is leveraging its core technology through its Centre for Advanced Rapid Diagnostics (CARD) to develop the next generation of ultra-sensitive point-of-care diagnostics which are easy to use and inexpensive to manufacture—critical to the success of many global health programs. Most recently, Mologic has received UK Government funding to develop and manufacture a high sensitivity test for COVID-19 that generates results within minutes—rather than hours or days—without the need for a laboratory or specialist equipment.

The technology behind these tests involves the use of precisely manufactured nanoparticles. Dolomite specializes in equipment that allows the development and scale-up of precision nanoparticles. This is achieved by using microfluidic technology to retain advanced control of production conditions. Dolomite is working with Mologic to combine ground-breaking diagnostic technology with continuous flow microfluidic manufacturing processes to accelerate the validation and release of Mologic’s COVID-19 diagnostic test.
