SkillCell: fast, easy and intelligent tests for health, food and environment

SkillCell has developed a breakthrough “lab in a drop” test concept that enables to detect molecular biomarkers of interest, without the need of any machine. This new generation patented technology provides critical and decisive information and can be put in anyone’s hands!

It consists in the development of miniaturized and easy-to-use tests designed to provide reliable and clear answers to their users. Our tests fit in the palm of a hand but are so sophisticated that they replace fully equipped labs in terms of possibilities and performance.

Moreover, SkillCell tests results are easy to interpret: color change or customized outcomes, with digital reading and link to data systems possibility.

The performance of a lab in a drop

SkillCell's patented invention is based on Biology, Artificial Intelligence and Microfluidics. It consists of programmable cell-like bioreactors that make it possible to detect and measure molecular biomarkers of interest that cannot be detected with antibodies screening technologies. These biomarkers can be:

  • Pathological, related to a disease (e.g.: Metabolic disorders: Type 2 diabetes, Obesity, NASH…)
  • Food and drink related (for example Glyphosate)
  • Environmental, related to aggressive environments (e.g.: threats from mosquito species)
  • Others, related to specific biotechnological issues (e.g.: industrial bioprocesses)

In other words, SkillCell can solve countless useful biochemical algorithms. Furthermore, the micrometric bioreactors can be inserted into various convenient matrices (gel beads, liquids, etc.) to meet end user needs.

Easy and fast

SkillCell tests are easy and fast to interpret: results are available in just a few minutes in the form of a color change. Fully standalone, SkillCell technology requires no machines and no power sources to function. For even greater convenience, it can:

  • Take the form of gel beads, solid or semi-solid gels, strips, patches, sprays, etc.
  • Provide a customized outcome for specific needs: for instance, results displayed on electronic devices.


SkillCell tests results are easy to interpret (colorimetric results or customized outcomes), with the possibility of a digital application readout to enable interconnections with information systems and tools.


Thanks to an efficient and automated production system, SkillCell provides cost-efficient test solutions. As a result, they can be used for a wide range of users such as private individuals, healthcare workers, industrials, public authorities, and service providers.
