Droplite Technologies, S.L. is a biotechnology company focused on the development and commercialization of in-vitro diagnostics and point-of-care testing. Droplite has developed a novel smart testing device that in solely 10 min delivers accurate test results from one drop of blood on the detection and quantification of specific diseases and health conditions.
Droplite was incorporated in 2018 in Barcelona, Spain, and is a spinoff of the Institute of Photonic Sciences (ICFO) and Cosingo. We are currently located at the vibrant Parc Cientìfic de Barcelona (PCB).
Our primary goal is to bring an on-site testing solution to doctors and patients that is faster, automated, more robust and affordable than the classic and slow laboratory tests. Our motivation is to continue developing novel solutions to make health testing and diagnostics easier, faster and more accessible to patients around the globe.

We combine a rare mix of different technologies and expertises, ranging from optics, nanotechnology, microfluidics, to chemistry and biology
Optics: Strong background in finding engineering solutions in optics. The core detection technology of DROPLITE is based on a proprietary optical sensor.
Nanotechnology: We are experts in the development of sensors and devices based on micro and nano technologies
Immunochemistry: Surface chemistry and immunoassay development is one of our strongest backgrounds
Microfluidics: Precise control and manipulation of small amount of reagents and samples allow an high efficiency and robustness of our testing platform
MARKETS AND APPLICATIONS:
We are currently exploring different markets and applications, where we have implemented our device concept: 1 drop of blood sample, 10-15 minute fully automated test.
Fertility Treatments - Monitoring concentration of different human female sexual hormones for assisted reproduction and fertility treatments
Allergies - Rapid detection and quantification of allergies;
Infectious Diseases – Detection and quantification of human infectious diseases and related antibodies.
Veterinary - rapid testing of key diseases in pets and stock animals.
DROPLITE has achieved central-lab quality results, reducing by 10-fold the test times and sample volume, using its novel testing prototype. Our goal is to provide a test solution to diagnose and start the treatment in the same medical appointment, without the need of a laboratory, long waiting times and second visits to the clinic/hospital.
Our customers and partners are typically pharmaceutical and diagnostics companies operating in the different sectors we are exploring.
