HDX - Hair screening
HDX is a non-invasive way of scanning a subject’s hair (animal or human) for all kinds of substances which were present during the recent past. A subject’s hair registers and stores all kinds of data, such as metabolic profiles to drugs, vitamin usage, and bio markers. By analyzing a hair using the HDX mass spectrometry imaging technology (MSI), we can discover all of this information and create a timeline that can clearly show the level and moments of exposure.
TOF - Organoid therapies
By extracting a small sample from healthy and sick tissue, The Organoid Factory is able to grow small so called ‘’Organoids’’, which resemble the hosts body. Because the tissue is identical to the host TOF can use this to determine the best possible patient treatments based on the response and available therapies and drugs. This information can be supplied to the physician to determine the best possible treatment plan.
