About Affinité Instruments
Founded by Professor Masson and Professor Pelletier from the Université de Montréal, Affinité Instruments is a MedTech startup offering innovative biosensing solutions in life sciences based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR). We have successfully developed a portable SPR platform based on the complex and costly SPR instrumentation used in the pharmaceutical industry. Our first product P4SPR™ offers portability and modularity to bridge a gap between the need to simplify the assay development workflow and difficulty in accessing centralized SPR instrumentation. Affinité Instruments’ vision is to expand the applications of this reliable SPR technology into the area of point-of-care diagnostics and real-time monitoring in personalized medicines.
