Xip is creating a tool for EDs to conduct fast, point-of-care blood tests for patients to detect everything from troponin for heart attacks, to STDs, and other tests that typically require longer turn around. While point-of-care tests exist today, as the company mentions, they, “require unwieldy instruments and often cannot detect low yet meaningful levels of troponin.” Seems quite interesting if they can get the science to work beyond heart attack detection.
