Faster than
the Competition


We at BacTrace develop portable integrated systems that allow to obtain test results within minutes on site, rather than from a laboratory within days or even weeks. The small size, highly sensitive and validated systems perfectly serve the needs in clinical point-of-care settings to help making fast triage and treatment decisions, as well as in environmental applications, such as water contamination assessment.

The problem of increasing antibiotic resistance: Infections of the upper respiratory tract are viral in the vast majority of cases (approx. 70 %).  The clear distinction between a bacterial and a viral infection is essential to reduce its misuse. BacTrace develops cost-effective, mobile rapid tests detecting defined bacteria or biomarkers in just a few minutes via specific bacteriophages or antibodies as fluorescence-labelled sensors plus a highly sensitive detection system. The system is designed as a fast, decentralized screening system. Neither laboratory nor trained personnel is required. InfectoScreen as well as ColiTracer are operable by the family doctor or the assistant without the need for lengthy training.

Our COVID-19 Rapid Test

Our advanced antibody rapid test developed by German virologists and bio-technology scientists quickly analyses a COVID-19 infection via an associated app. Three essential parameters (IgG, IgM and IgA) indicate if an individual is infected, in the recovery phase or already immune.
