Rapid Biofluid Analyzer

State of Development

The Rapid Biofluid Analyzer for whole blood hemoglobin measurement is currently under review in the FDA submission process, with manufacturing in progress

Product Info

Rapid Biofluid Analyzer

Patient’s blood is scanned directly without interference in the collection cup
Measurements of analytes within the blood are collected
Machine learning measures the Hemoglobin (Hgb) level
Results are returned within 3 minutes

The RBA is an in-vitro prescription-use whole blood hemoglobin assay designed to quantify Hgb concentration in whole blood samples within 2 minutes without the use of reagents. Optimized for both operator safety & laser efficacy, our top-down spectrometer model allows the operator to seamlessly load blood samples into the device while minimizing risk of exposure or cross-contamination, and preventing any ambient light from entering the device or corrupting the sample.

The target population includes all adults of age 21 years and older with no bias towards sex, ethnicity, or vulnerable populations within the age range given. Due to its small size and ease of use, the device may occupy a variety of clinical settings, with emergency rooms, point-of-care offices, and doctor’s offices being the current target settings

Portable Rapid Screening can be used anywhere in hospitals.
Provide more services and timely information to patients – simplifying their experience and allowing their trusted medical professional to provide them with lab results directly.
Kaligia’s point-of-care devices offer rapid testing that allows for frequent and seamless monitoring, enabling quicker containment and reduced exposure in larger groups. 

An issue that requires early detection & monitoring

High hemoglobin levels could signal a rare blood disorder called polycythemia, in which the body makes too many red blood cells and causes it to be thicker than usual. This can lead to clots, heart attacks, and stroke. It is a serious lifelong condition that can be fatal without treatment. Low hemoglobin levels could signal numerous forms of anemia. Early detection of anomalous hemoglobin levels can help reduce the risk of more serious or lethal conditions forming
