Nix is leveraging bioinspired engineering and materials science to develop its consumer diagnostic platform for a range of meaningful, actionable applications. Nix’s sensor platform is built on stimuli-responsive hydrogel solutions that measure subtle changes in biomarkers present in body fluids such as sweat, tears, blood, urine, breast milk, and saliva. Our technology can be chemically tuned to respond to a wide range of environmental and biological stimuli, which supports several other uses in consumer diagnostic applications.
Strategically, Nix is dedicated to developing its single-use sensing platform for applications that address real consumer needs, by providing actionable information, in the moment that a decision needs to be made – and for which the solution is readily available. Starting with hydration and expanding from there to skin care, oral health, neonatal nutrition, and more, Nix continues to build its pipeline of biometric sensors through proprietary and partnered programs, for three types of use cases:
- One-time assessments for solution personalization
- Continuous sensing for optimization
- Repeat use for ongoing monitoring
