Frost & Sullivan Applauds F Cubed for its Game-Changing MRSA Screener, the NESDEP IU
Date:8/5/2014

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the methillicin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) screening market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes F Cubed, LLC. with the 2014 North America Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation Leadership. F Cubed's portable device, the NESDEP IU, can rapidly and cost-effectively screen patients suspected of having contracted MRSA. This screening tool can help eliminate unwanted side effects, time, anxiety, and the huge costs associated with the treatment of MRSA.

The NESDEP IU can be operated by laymen with minimal staff training The device operates on a biochip that measures 7 millimeters (mm) by 14 mm and comprises nano-scale electrodes and microfluidic structures that contain a mix of carbon nanotubes characterized to hybridize with very specific DNA molecules.

Importantly, the NESDEP IU and its associated screening test are 10 times less expensive than competing medical equipment in the market. The NESDEP IU can screen a MRSA-suspect patient within two hours, thereby accelerating the delivery of an appropriate treatment.

"The device is highly durable and portable, and comes in a durable MIL-SPEC plastic case with wheels. It weighs approximately 35 kg and can fit on a 3-foot table top," said Frost & Sullivan Saju Mathew, Industry Analyst. "In the future, F Cubed plans to integrate several biochips into the system to enable the simultaneous detection of a wider range of pathogens."

Apart from being applied for the rapid identification of pathogenic bacteria in medical diagnostics, F Cubed uses the NESDEP IU in food safety and environmental science applications as well. It is also looking into pathogens such as E. coli, Listeria, and Salmonella due to the recent passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act in 2011. As the regulatory hurdles in the food safety industry are not as str
