Startups to Watch
From infectious diseases to cancer testing, we take a look at 12 startups leveraging lab-on-a-chip technology to target point-of-care diagnostics.
For many years, point-of-care diagnostics — from blood glucose monitoring to pregnancy tests — have helped bring medical testing out of the laboratory.
In recent years, lab-on-a-chip technology has been integrated into diagnostics to allow for even more advanced testing to occur at the point-of-care, such as detecting various infectious diseases or early cancer.
Interest in the tech is on the rise, as it could help researchers perform drug analysis faster and ultimately drive the drug development process further towards precision medicine.
