iAssay®, Point of care diagnostics. Improves patient outcomes and saves Healthcare money
The iAssay® System is designed for use POC at a patient’s home by home health care practitioners, at the primary care physician’s office, by paramedics/EMTs on-site and in transport, by ED staff for triage, and in clinics and pharmacies. One device (instead of a closet full of single function readers) provides a patient panel in minutes. Test, patient, and local wearable data is pushed into The Cloud HIPPA compliantly to enable auto-EHR population, auto-reimbursement billings, and remote physician monitoring.
Any popular test cartridge format can be used by plugging in the appropriate “Adaptor Module” into the Open Platform designed and produced by iAssay® and strategic partners, then inserting the test cartridge into the Adaptor Module. The combination of platform and adaptor operates the test cartridge exactly as the cartridge manufacturer intends, but at a small fraction of the price of a single function reader. iAssay will be initially providing POC testing for glucose, electrolytes, cardiac markers, hematology, and PT/INR.
iAssay’s customers save money because the low manufacturing costs and capabilities of a mass produced smartphone engine is leveraged to control The iAssay® System, perform analysis, provide an operator interface, and provide “wireless everything” capabilities. The smartphone and test cartridge Adaptor Module work together to provide the proper protocol and electrical interface to operate the test cartridge.
In addition to Adaptor Modules that adapt POC test cartridges to the platform, Functional Modules (e.g. high speed microprocessor, satellite communications, imaging, and fluid control) allow for iAssay® System functional easy hardware expansion by just inserting a plug-in.
The capabilities of The iAssay® System are essentially limitless from a Point of Care standpoint because of smartphone programmability (Apps) and plug-ins. All Point of care assays can now be run on one inexpensive platform, eliminating the need for multiple readers.
