CapSenze was formed around an invention of a novel way to measure capacitance using a biosensor format. Research on the sensor has been performed for 15 years, but with competencies regarding electronic development entering the project, we managed to bring an academic lab setup to a commercially valid instrument. CapSenze develop and sell capacitive biosensor for use in e.g. clinical diagnostics. CapSenze is today in an intense phase of refining the product line. Together with several partners the biosensor platform is validated and tested. Two units were sold to Lund University for use as research equipment. Biosensors are manufactured in a standard design. Software and sensor chips are developed and tailored to each customer’s specific needs. The sensor chip is a consumable item. Customers will also be offered the service and support agreement.
