This involves licensing or sale of rights to certain of the company's recently developed multiplex tests and proprietary platform technologies.
Over the last 2 years Axela has successfully transformed itself from being an engineering based, life-science tools company, into a strategically focused solutions provider, poised to exploit large market opportunities in Cancer, Immunology, Specialty Diagnostic and Life Science markets. Axela has focused its MDX applications on rapidly growing markets which demand the combination of high numbers of gene and/or protein markers, rapid results and competitive pricing.

The Ziplex® platform is more cost effective and unlike existing approaches, can be readily integrated into established laboratory workflows while measuring 125-150 genes. Recently, capabilities have been expanded to include fully automated multiplex protein analysis, offering significant advantages over bead or plate based platforms. Ziplex, which is patented with extensive freedom to operate, can simultaneously measure more than 50 proteins rapidly while consuming only a few microliters of sample. Performance has been demonstrated in infectious diseases, traumatic brain injury, and allergy testing applications.
