FFG Bridge Project started

DirectSens started a cooperation with the laboratory of Prof. Dietmar Haltrich at the VIBT BOKU for the project „StaREliS – Stabilisation of Redox Enzymes for long-term implantable Sensors”.

StaREliS aims to elucidate the deactivation mechanism of redox enzymes, which should serve as the basis for the development of stable enzymes for long-term biosensors.

The project is funded by a Bridge grant from the the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG).

International Dairy Magazine appreciates NordVal validation

From the dairy industry point of view, IDM stresses the need for a precise, fast and easy method of on-site measurement of residual lactose – to bring it down to the recommended 0.01% lactose-free threshold. This has been made possible thanks to the technical breakthrough of LactoSens®. The recent NordVal validation of this method against the reference method for lactose determination allows dairies to easily integrate LactoSens® into their certified quality management system: This method’s high levels of accuracy, specificity, stability, and reliability have proven to be in line with the ISO 17025 standard.

Mercur´17 Innovation Award

DirectSens GmbH won this year’s innovation award “Mercur 2017” in the category “Life Science” and was awarded the “Start-up Star”.

For the 30th time, the Vienna Chamber of Commerce awarded the Mercur Innovation Prize. Around 200 guests came to the awards ceremony on 14 November in the Dome Hall of the Vienna University of Technology. From more than 100 applications, DirectSens GmbH won the prize in the category “Life Science” and additionally the award “Start-up Star”.

DirectSens has managed to translate the results of basic research into a business idea and a marketable product, according to the jury. The lactose biosensor test kit Lactosens has already been successfully established in the global market. With the help of the DirectSens enzyme technology even low lactose concentrations can be measured quickly and precisely. In parallel, DirectSens is developing a glucose sensor for diabetics that outperforms conventional systems in terms of performance, accuracy and cost.

DirectSens GmbH is nominated for the State Prize Innovation and for the SME Award Econovius as representative of Vienna.
