An innovative diagnosis device
An efficient tool
DIAFIR proposes a device for innovative medical diagnosis based on mid infrared spectroscopy using an optical fiber.
Infrared optical fiber allows the study of functional groups of molecules in a biological sample, being a tissue or a liquid.
Therefore, DIAFIR device records the metabolic signature of studied biological medium.
A comfort for the patient
Analysis is little or no invasive: or it avoids tissue sampling, or it is directly carried out on some microliters of biological liquid.
The result is obtained in less than 2 minutes.
A lightened medical practice
Analysis is immediate and operator independent .
No tracer injection is needed.
DIAFIR analysis demonstrated its ability, by giving rise to modifications of spectroscopic profiles, to discriminate samples representing different pathological situations.
