Company Story

Aksense is a medical biotechnology startup developing a next-generation diagnostic device for hospital-acquired infections.

Current diagnostic methods and devices are time-consuming, expensive, require laboratory facilities and expert technicians. This lengthy and costly diagnostic period results in longer hospitalization, unnecessary and exponential use of antibiotics which leads to the spread of superbugs.

We are developing a cost-effective, blood-based, point of care device to rapidly and accurately diagnose infected patients. Aksense’s biosensor measures the infection with a drop of blood with sensors that are sensitive to specific bacteria, with a proven, high accuracy of 91% and converting the results to provide evidence for the presence of infection. The sensors allow diagnosis of hospital-acquired infections in a few minutes, provide the physician power to take control of infections that will reduce the cost of care per patient compared to current diagnostic methods. The biosensor has already been tested in over 400 patients at intensive care units of Cerrahpasa Medical Faculty and Şişli Etfal Hospitals in Turkey. We can provide more data upon request.
