MultiOmic Health and Mesh Bio Partner to Use AI to Develop Precision Medicines & Diagnostics for Chronic Metabolic Disease

MultiOmic Health advises the partnership will provide access to data from patient populations in Asia that have historically been underrepresented in chronic metabolic disease studies.

TECHKON GmbH, a global leader in color measurement and spectrophotometric solutions, has invented a simple-to-use and effective device and method to analyze body fluids and determine medical parameters and diagnoses instantly.

Depending on the type of medical parameter to be analyzed, the user puts a drop of saliva, blood, or any other body fluid on a card that contains a bio-/ chemical reaction substance and separation mechanism.

The medical rapid test result is displayed on the card or its backside as a change in color or geometric pattern and put into context with a numerical or graphical description. It can be analyzed visually and by using the camera and processing unit of a digital mobile device such as a smartphone.

In the case of a blood sample, the card can contain a perforating-/ needle- or cutting mechanism to extract blood, for example from the fingertip. The card can additionally have a temperature, a personal identity, memory, and/or data processing and transmission module and it can be part of a sterile packaging/disposal unit.

The method can be used for single- or multiple applications and also for consecutive tests for trend evaluation.
