Saving in diagnostic times

Saving lifes

In time & in situ diagnosis

MATCH biosystems is an innovative IVD company focused on the research, development and commercialization of a new generation of in vitro diagnostic devices (IVD) faster, more reliable than the current solutions available and easy to use. We are developing a PoC portfolio with innovative IN SITU diagnostic kits.

We develop innovative solutions able to improve healthcare outcomes by means of reducing mortality rates and being competitive enough to decrease the cost burden. At MACTH biosystems we want to afford doctors and patients with the most valuable good… time.

Better than current solutions



More reliable

Easy to use

Benefits of MATCH

Reduce mortality rates

Decrease cost burden

Time saving

We aim 3 main fields




The value of time in diagnosis

Delayed diagnostics & non-specific treatments lead to high mortality rates on patients, but if patients could receive targeted treatment faster thanks to shorter diagnostic times the outcome will largely improve.

The only PoC test for candidemia

MATCH biosystems was born to make available the fastest, reliable and affordable diagnostic at PoC (Point of Care). Is the first PoC kit under development: FIVDTM Candida 7 spp.

Direct from blood

Fungal detection assay: no blood culture required. 300μL sample test.

In situ + in time diagnostic

Doctors won’t need to send samples to the lab to get the diagnostic anymore. In less than an hour from sample collection.

Recurso 2

99% Candidemias

7 species: C. albicans, C. tropicalis, C. glabrata, C. krusei, C. parapsilosis, C. dubliniensis and C. auris.


Sensitivity > 95% | Specificity > 99% | Species ID =

Candidemia: 2nd leading cause of BSI

Candida is the second leading cause of Blood Stream Infections in EU and North America (after S. aureus). And third foremost cause of catheter-associated BS1 in USA.

Inefficiency of available diagnostics

Available diagnostics do not provide timely, accurate an affordable results.

Invasive Candidiasis global estimates


40% mortality rate

Patients receiving
inadequate treatment


Producing increased adverse affects, resistances, length of stay and care costs.

Therapy delay from onset of candidemia >48h


Mortality increase in patients with Invasive Candidiasis.

Candidemia and Invasive Candidiasis

>$1B/year USA

$64K/patient worlwide median total cost.
$10-80k/patient worldwide mean range.
