BREAKTHROUGH BIOSENSOR TECHNOLOGIES

OUR MISSION

Our mission is to become the cornerstone solution provider for fast and effective diagnosis of bacterial infections at the point of need.

ABOUT US

BIALOOM is a deep tech start-up established in Nicosia, Cyprus with a vision to grow into a global diagnostics game changer. bialoom finds itself at the cross road of photonics science and bioinformatics leveraging two of the most powerful technologies to solve global diagnostic challenges.

SOLUTION

Our solution combines personalized molecular diagnostics with medical data and omics science. We build on novel super sensitive plasmo-photonic biosensors supplemented with powerful bioinformatics algorithms and artificial intelligence – IN A BOX. 

SENSITIVITY

Use proprietary plasmonic interferometric sensors for super-sensitive detection of multiple critical biomarkers.

SMALL VOLUMES OF ANALYTE

Micrometer scale footprint of the sensing area allows tests from microliter scale analytes.

 MULTIPLEXING AT LOW COST

Use standard semiconductor technology (CMOS) for low-cost volume manufacturing of multi-sensor chip.

INTELLIGENCE

We use AI to analyze the outcomes of personalized pathogen tests with patients medical records, demographics and medical statistics.

THE TEAM

DIMITRIS TSIOKOS,PhD

Co-founder & CEO

Dimitris is an Electronic Engineering graduate from the University of Southampton. His commitment in photonic science led him to the completion of an MSc in Photonics from Imperial College London and a PhD in photonics at the National Technical University of Athens. Dimitris held various research and management positions developing photonic technologies for ICT and bio-applications at the School of Engineering, University of Wisconsin-Mileaukee in USA the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas and the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. Throughout his career Dimitris secured over 10 millions of grants and led a series of multi-million R&D programs. In parallel, Dimitris was involved in a number of start-up projects involving photonics however his passion for innovation in health and medical technologies led him to the founding of Bialoom. Before that Dimitris held the prestigious Marie Curie fellowship and he is an EITHealth Starship alumni where he was trained in Healthtech innovation and entrepreneurship.

ANASTASIS OULAS,PhD

Co-founder

Anastasis is a bioinformatician, with over 15 years of experience in bioinformatics related R&D projects inlcuding FP7, HO2020, as well as national projects. Having completed a BSc in Molecular Genetics at Sussex University, his interests turned to computing and the implementation of mathematical algorithms for deciphering the enormous amount of information retrieved from large-scale experiments. He enriched his knowledge within this field by completing a MSc in Computational Genetics and Bioinformatics at Imperial College London. He then moved to the Foundation of Research and Technology, Hellas (FORTH) in Crete, Greece, where he conducted research that led to the attainment of his PhD in Bioinformatics. After holding three postdoctoral positions he moved to the Cyprus Institute of Neurology and Genetics (CING), where his research interests include the implementation of machine-learning algorithms to facilitate the diagnosis of complex diseases and the analysis of large-scale data.
