Orphidia is leading the development of next generation medical technology which will transform medical testing and the healthcare industry. We are developing a portable device to run all the common lab tests for liver, kidney, cardiac, thyroid, and hormone levels with results provided within 20 minutes. We now have a fast-growing, multidisciplinary team of more engineers, biologists and technicians. Orphidia is funded by well known Silicon Valley investors and is targeting rapid expansion in the US medical market through its partnerships with premier US health systems. The process of performing the most common blood tests hasn't changed in decades: once the patient visits the doctor's clinic, the test is done in a lab off premise, extending the time to diagnosis by weeks. But 1 in 3 people who die from chronic diseases every year could live longer if their disease was diagnosed earlier. Our device will change that by enabling rapid, lab-accurate, simultaneous, measurement of multiple biomarkers anywhere and anytime from a single blood drop. Orphidia's technology will change healthcare, expanding access to testing globally and enabling the practice of medicine to become truly information based.
