COMPANY

Apollo Medical Devices is commercializing a rapid blood testing technology with an anticipated turnaround time of five minutes using just a single drop of blood. According to the National Library of Medicine, blood chemistry tests are the most frequently ordered tests by physicians in the United States with a typical turnaround time ranging anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours. Point-of-care blood chemistry testing can reduce this turnaround time to enable faster diagnosis and decision-making, with the overarching goal of better patient care.

single drop of blood

Apollo’s cost-effective, proprietary platform technology is currently being developed to safely and effectively provide patient blood chemistry test results via a portable analyzer at the patient’s bedside. First, a single drop of blood would be placed directly onto our patented microfluidic-based sensor cartridge. The blood rapidly flows across the cartridge and can be ready for analysis in seconds. The disposable cartridge would then be placed into the portable analyzer and results are returned within five minutes. The Apollo system is being designed to minimize the training required for use, and eliminate complicated protocols or expensive equipment. Replacing painful vein sticks with finger stick blood tests should, pending FDA 510(k) clearance, enhance patient comfort, decrease clinician sample acquisition time, and open the field of use greatly to include first responders, military, and disaster relief organizations.
