Cotton Mouton Diagnostics Ltd (CMD) is an exciting new Cardiff based start-up company established to exploit major business opportunities in the field of point-of-need (PoN) diagnostics.
The Company is developing a highly innovative magneto-optical sensing platform that exploits changes in the rotational behaviour of magnetic reporters (naturally occurring or artificially introduced) observed via the Cotton-Mouton effect.
CMD is applying the technology to the field of in-vitro PoN diagnostics. Long running research programs (funding of ~£2M from the EU & Gates Foundation) have already developed and field-tested, on more than 1,000 patients, a near patient malaria in-vitro diagnostic.
Building from the excellent platform utility demonstrated in these niche clinical-studies and now with the support of committed commercial investors, CMD is now developing a disruptive and generic multiplex detection platform targeting human and veterinary in-vitro PoC diagnostics.
