The Biomarker Company

SphingoTec develops and markets innovative in vitro diagnostics solutions for novel and proprietary blood-based protein biomarkers. Our aspiration is to effectively translate scientific advancements into routine clinical practice.

Our innovative biomarkers address diagnostically underserved critical care conditions such as sepsis, acute heart failure, acute kidney injury, and cardiogenic shock. 
We are a fully integrated diagnostics company: our innovative biomarkers are commercially available on the point of care platform Nexus IB10. The assay portfolio for near patient testing goes beyond innovation: on the Nexus IB10 platform, clinicians can deploy a wide range of commonly used parameters in acute and critical care settings, making the analyzer a useful addition to intensive care units (ICU), emergency departments (ED), and other near patient settings. 

Integrated diagnostic solutions for unmet medical needs

Rapid Testing

Point of care diagnostics

Nexus IB10 is a point of care analyzer that provides rapid and reliable diagnostic results. Fully automatic and compact, Nexus IB10 is a solution for near patient testing in acute and critical care settings. 

Test portfolio

Biomarker-based diagnostics

The Nexus IB10 test portfolio includes biomarker innovations and established parameters for acute and critical care such as PCT, Troponin, NT-proBNP, D-Dimer, TSH, and others. 

From bench to bedside

Biomarker innovations

The main mortality drivers in intensive care units are diagnostic blind spots. We pave the way for early intervention and personalized medicine in critical care with innovative biomarkers.
