Welcome to Research, Where Innovation and Quantum Physics
Shape the Future of Medical Diagnostics and Environmental Analysis.

In-vitro Diagnostics

Our research and development center in Berlin serves as the epicenter for pioneering innovations in in-vitro diagnostics. Our primary focus is on developing a ‘platform’ for the molecular detection of pathogens and a ‘dispensing system’ to produce a tube for the collection of human samples.

Our goal at ICHORtec is to create a pioneering ‘in-vitro’ diagnostic system that enables point-of-care in-vitro diagnostics with 100% specificity. This innovative platform is characterized by speed, sensitivity, precision, and cost-efficiency, far surpassing current gold standards in medical diagnostics.

Our patented technology, known as ‘Fluorimetry of Molecular Binding’ (FMB®), is based on the fundamental principles of quantum physics. It allows for the direct detection of various molecules, including mRNA, dsDNA, ssRNA and ions.

Our in-vitro diagnostics ‘platform’ utilizes advanced optical analysis algorithms to identify pathogens, playing a crucial role in the early detection and treatment of infectious diseases. The dispensing system focuses on research, development, and industrial production of test systems made available as tubes. The sample collection tube contains polymers that react specifically to pathogens.

At our Berlin location, we work passionately to advance this technology and explore its diverse applications, aiming to enhance global medical diagnostics and healthcare.

Our research and development are supported by IBB (Investitionsbank Berlin) and funding from the European Union through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Through the profit funding under the names ‘Dispensing System’ and ‘Diagnostics Platform’ we are shaping the future of innovative in-vitro diagnostics. These partnerships enable us to develop and manufacture innovative solutions, whether it’s the detection of viruses or bacteria. It’s always about the safety and well-being of people.

Advanced ISE Sensors for Precise Chemical Analysis

ICHORtec’s Ion-Selective Electrode (ISE) sensors represent a groundbreaking advancement in various market segments, including water quality monitoring, life science applications, environmental observation, and the food industry. For the first time, they enable precise chemical analysis at an entirely new level. Our innovative method requires no complex maintenance or calibration while ensuring reliable compensation for environmental factors such as temperature fluctuations.

Our research and development rely on the use of optodes but with an innovative approach that provides a maintenance-free and calibration-free solution for chemical sensors. We combine extensive expertise in solid-state physics and spectroscopy and apply a methodology similar to that used in solid-state physics.

Our research focuses not on determining the relative amplitude of absorption or fluorescence lines but on measuring ionophore energy. Unlike conventional radiometric sensors that require high maintenance, we use the precise position in the optical spectrum as a parameter to determine analyte concentration. This position is extremely accurate and resistant to external disturbances.

At ICHORtec, we strive to push the boundaries of sensor technology and develop advanced solutions for demanding applications. Our innovative approach to ionophore measurement and energy measurement promises to revolutionize the accuracy and reliability of chemical sensors, shaping the future of analytical chemistry.

We are dedicated to revolutionizing the accuracy and reliability of chemical sensors and offering advanced solutions for demanding applications. Welcome to ICHORtec, where our research is shaping the future of chemical analytics.”
