Novodiax

Get IHC results in as little as 10 minutes on frozen sections


Novodiax is a dynamic and innovative in vitro diagnostic (IVD) provider of rapid immunoassays for immunhistochemistry (IHC) and point of care testing (POC). Since 2017, Novodiax has been building a reputation for quality with their novel rapid immunoassay products with their 10 minute rapid IHC under the ihcDirect® brand name. Some of the benefits of ihcDirect include:

  • Simple protocols – Simple test protocols lead to fewer mistakes and reduced training requirements. ihcDirect® – the simplicity of an H&E with the specificity of an IHC.
  • Fast turnaround times
    • ~ 10 minutes of IHC test times facilitate intraoperative testing during surgery.
    • Enables swift decision-making by physicians.
    • Frozen tissue results offer similar quality to FFPE tissues.
  • Growing menu – nearly 50 assays planned by the end of 2021.
    • Menu crosses a wide range of important cancer diagnostic markers for: breast, lung, thyroid, and skin to name a few.

In support of rapid IHC testing, they will be releasing the Q-STAIN® X Autostainer. This device offers many features of more expensive systems but on a small platform. The Q-STAIN X is:

  • Convenient – automated system ensures reproducibility.
  • Random access – match any slide with a programmed antibody test.
  • Flexible – system can flex between IHC, H&E and FFPE frozen tissue testing.
  • Fast – complete a run of 10 FFPE tests in approximately one hour.
    • 4-5 frozen tissues in 20 minutes and 10 H&E tests in about 6-8 minutes.
    • Capacity for up to 5 antibodies and 10 tissue slides per run.

In support of the global pandemic, Novodiax is developing a rapid POC test for the semi-quantitative assessment of neutralizing antibodies to SARS-CoV-2 in human blood, plasma, and serum. The product offers:

  • High sensitivity and specificity
  • Fast – results in just 15 minutes.
  • Simple protocols – easily operated by any lab technician.
  • Additional variants – plans are to continue development so that additional variants to the virus can be added.
