WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
The partners will develop, validate and bring to the global market an easy-to-use, rapid, whole blood Point-of-Care
system for near-patient testing, but with central laboratory quality. The system is based on innovative, patented
SpectroFlow technology. This technology allows high accuracy by correcting for hematocrit, for a variety of whole
blood diagnostic tests, including cardiac, inflammation, and iron status markers. A simple camera, eg from a mobile
phone, is used to measure the results.
WHY DO YOU WANT TO DO IT?
There is an urgent need on the market for Point-of-Care tests that give accurate, trustworthy results. The market is
lucrative and growing, mainly due to the ongoing shift to home care, rising health care expenses and the aging of
the population. In addition to providing growth, high revenue and profit to the company, our new POC system will
also increase demand for Gentians equivalent laboratory-based tests (current products) and solidify our position on
the world immunoassay market.
HOW WILL YOU MAKE MONEY?
We will sell a patented POC system with multiple tests on the world market, confirmed by solid clinical trials and
superior to existing commercially available technology. We expect to sell 6 million tests/year, providing a revenue
over 3,2 Mn EUR/year within 5 years after launch.
