OJ-Bio Ltd is a young and innovative joint venture company with expertise in measuring protein biomarkers on biochips based on the expertise of its parent companies. Through converging state of the art electronics of JRC and cutting edge nano-biotechnology of Orla, OJ-Bio developed Xtalline, a portable diagnostic testing device allowing quick and reliable test anywhere by anyone.
Xtalline enables multiple tests and applications in one device. OJ-Bio’s lead application is a biochip that can measure the biomarker C-Reactive Protein (CRP), which allows determination of whether an infection is caused by bacteria and whether or not antibiotics are required. Additionally, products for other applications including periodontal disease, flu and HIV are in the pipeline. OJ-Bio welcomes partnerships to find new and additional applications for its technology to develop new products and discover new commercial opportunities.
