Diagnostic App Development

Enable Your Users To Interpret Lateral Flow Assay Results Quickly with a Smartphone and Your Very Own Diagnostic Application.

How does Novarum™️ work?

Novarum™️ technology enables the development of a reader module for your mobile diagnostic app suitable for your lateral flow assay format, whether a naked strip or a housed cassette. Our experienced team gains a deep understanding of your assay/product, assesses the target end user for your test, and builds features and functionality to address end-user needs and minimize the risk of end-user error. Our patented Novarum technology provides reliable and accurate results, ensuring the highest quality performance of your lateral flow assay.

Our team works with you to map out the three main stages of your end user’s journey, including pre-scan, in-scan, and post-scan workflows, and implements a range of different functionalities to support the user through the workflow of setting, running, and sharing the assay results. This includes GPS tracking, batch calibration, signature pad, questionnaire, multiple assay reading, multiple assay user test selection, data security, systems integration, and remote result sharing.

Pre-scan workflow 

  • Login/User ID 
  • Different user types could have different workflows 
  • Change app language to match that of the phone 
  • Check the camera is working 
  • Record the location of the phone 

In-scan workflow 

  • Select the test type from the menu or scan the barcode which selects the correct test type 
  • Video or graphic instructions to guide the user through running the assay 
  • Automatic batch check for expiry date etc. 
  • Record patient ID or sample ID 
  • Provide and enforce countdown timers to ensure the assay is read at the correct time 
  • Read the test and apply the threshold to bin or quantify the result

Post-scan workflow 

  • How is the result managed? 
  • The result is sent to a central database (manufacturer/health service/other) or shared with an EHR/LIMS 
  • The result is only stored on the phone locally 
  • How the result is displayed to the user 

A range of different functionalities can be implemented to support the user through the workflow of setting, running and then sharing the assay results.
