Colorific is a revolutionary detection tool utilizing innovative nanoswitch technology. Colorific directly captures analytes from samples, producing observable colour changes without pre-processing of the sample. The ability to use a variety of samples, even coloured ones, makes it suitable for quick on-site point-of-care use. Moreover, the sustainable nanoswitch production aligns with environmental goals. 

This project focuses on harnessing Colorific's nanoswitch technology to address rapid and easy cardiovascular disease detection. Its adaptability allows for the expansion of the technology's impacts beyond healthcare. The overarching vision is to establish a fast, accurate, and versatile testing solution that caters to various needs, including emerging disease diagnostics in healthcare, veterinary diagnostics, and food safety.
