Anitoa Ultra-low Light Bio-optical Sensor in Volume Production

A Single Chip CMOS Bio-Optical Sensor for Portable Medical and Scientific Instruments

MENLO PARK, Calif., April 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Anitoa Systems, ("Anitoa"), a Menlo Park CA startup since 2012, today announced the volume production release of its single chip Ultra-low-light CMOS bio-optical sensor, ULS24.  Capable of 3x10-6 lux low-light detection, Anitoa ULS24 is currently the world's most sensitive image sensor manufactured with proven low-cost CMOS image sensor (CIS) process technology.  ULS24 addresses the growing need for low cost, low power, rapid, and precise screening devices, such as portable point-of-care molecular testing instruments.  This ULS24 Bio-optical sensor is perfect candidate for all portable high precision molecular testing in food safety, animal health, environmental monitoring, and etc.

Until now, molecular testing such as DNA or RNA, and immunoassay testing (e.g. ELISA) rely on traditional bulky and expensive Photon Multiplier Tube (PMT) or cooled CCD technologies. "Following the trend of CMOS image sensors replacing CCDs in consumer cameras, many customers are exploring this CMOS Bio-optical sensor to replace CCD or PMT designs for new products," says Anitoa SVP Yuping Chung.  With Anitoa ULS24 now in volume production, it's unique ultra-low-light sensitivity rivals and replaces PMTs and CCDs used in molecular and immunoassay testing devices. ULS24 achieves this high level of sensitivity through the innovation of temperature compensated dark current management algorithm.

Anitoa ULS24 has a very small form factor, less than 5mm x 5mm, packed inside with a highly integrated array of active pixel sensors, A/D converter, digital communication interface, and signal processing circuit.  ULS24 consumes very low power at <30mW typical with a single 3.3V supply.  Thus, do away with the need of external cooling as required for PMTs or CCDs designs.

Since its initial sample shipment, Anitoa ULS24 has been proven in dozens of devices in molecular and immunoassay diagnosis, environmental testing, food safety, animal health and others.  Several of these ULS24 powered devices have gone through regulatory field testing with excellent performance data. To streamline and shorten customers' product development cycle, Anitoa offers a ULS24 Solution Kit including a ULS24 sensor board, MCU control board with USB, utility software, optional bandpass filter lens, and optional fiber optics based light guides.

For more information on pricing and availability of Anitoa ULS24 CMOS bio-optic sensor and Solution Kit, or for sales representative opportunities, please contact Anitoa at [email protected].

About Anitoa

Anitoa Systems, established in 2012 with headquarters in Menlo Park, California, develops highly-integrated system-on-chip (SoC) products for a new generation of point-of-care diagnostics systems.  Anitoa also develops IVD molecular sensor technology, consisting of a CMOS Bio-Optical Sensor and proprietary Intelligent Dark-current Management algorithm, enables compact and portable NAT (nucleic-acid-test) platform targeting at infectious diseases. This platform allows physicians and healthcare professionals to obtain rapid screening and precise diagnostic results at point-of-care in half an hour instead of in days or weeks from a centralized lab.

While a hybrid cloud can ease that transition, designing and deploy that hybrid cloud still offers challenges for organizations concerned about lack of available cloud skillsets within their organization. Managed service providers offer a unique opportunity to fill those gaps and get organizations of all sizes on a hybrid cloud that meets their comfort level, while delivering enhanced benefits for cost, efficiency, agility, mobility, and elasticity.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...
The level of trust we have with individuals, businesses, and technology affects our lives daily. This is important to remember when discussing new technologies. For example, our level of trust is a critical factor when evaluating a new technology as a potential solution for providing business value.
