Co-founder of InnaMed, Eshwar Inapuri, contributed to R&D at the University of Pennsylvania combining microfluidics, optics and cloud computing to develop multiplexed, smartphone-based digital ELISA and digital PCR assays for high throughout protein and DNA quantitation. InnaMed (on Republic) is developing a simple at-home blood testing device to enable patients to painlessly and rapidly capture the same blood test data that physicians use to manage heart failure today from the comfort of their home. Blood testing currently requires travel to a lab or doctor’s office, painful, high-volume venous draws and long wait times. InnaMed hopes to increase the frequency of blood testing by eliminating these barriers.
