OPTOLANE Technologies, an innovator in the healthcare and diagnostics industry, has designed a platform that gives them direct contact with customers and helps them develop strategies for solutions. “Our diagnostic platform enables us to receive samples easily and perform genome sequencing as we concurrently create and correlate epigenetic situation data with customers to extract health check factors suitable for every situation,” says Do Young Lee, CEO. With the technology to develop diagnostic panels and the data to build more precise correlations, the company is designing a self-diagnosis system, as well as diagnostic items that can be used at home.
OPTOLANE enables diagnostic solutions to be built faster with its mutually viable platform, Lab On An Array (LOAA), where end customers can use various diagnostic services on one platform. Multiple categories of services include multiplex qualitative PCR, absolute quantitation of target genes, and multiplex quantitative and quantitation of protein markers. As a platform company, OPTOLANE enables any company or individual designing a diagnostic item to be a supplier for end customers on the LOAA platform.
Optolane Technologies: Spearheading Quantitative Gene Diagnosis
While qualitative diagnostics is the current mainstay of genomic diagnosis, the ability to perform tests anywhere from a single platform will be the only way to meet increasing customer demand in the future. To this end, OPTOLANE’s addition of the absolute quantification method, Digital Real Time PCR, to its LOAA platform offers a wider diagnostic spectrum for customers. “The Digital Real Time PCR can perform much better and has improved usability over the Real Time qPCR,” says Lee.

As the future paradigm for diagnosis and medical services leans toward personalized medical services, the configuration of a diagnostic panel for individuals raises several practical issues, in terms of economic feasibility. To enable such personalization, OPTOLANE is planning a home diagnostic kit generator that can build a personalized diagnostic panel corresponding to information flowing into an individual’s home seamlessly.
