Planet Innovation has onsite laboratories and a team of scientists including biochemists, molecular biologists and histopathologists with broad experience across all aspects of biomedical device development and associated assays and reagent test kits, including:

  • Initial concept generation and technology evaluation.
  • Development and translation of bench assays onto automated platforms.
  • Handling and processing various types of specimens (ie blood, urine, washings, tissue, cells).
  • Verification and external validation trials, including human ethics applications.
  • Product release into global regulated markets.

We have particular expertise in molecular and protein based assay development:

  • Isolation of DNA and RNA from human specimens.
  • PCR – Reverse transcriptase, Real time and Multiplexed.
    • Electrophoresis
    • DNA cloning and vector design
    • DNA sequencing
    • In-situ hybridization
    • Immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridization
    • Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)

Our scientists work as an integral part of the engineering and product development teams to develop highly effective diagnostic solutions.
