No. Tests Per Day:
1 test/run x 1 run/0.05 hours x 24 hours/day=480 tests/day
Time to Result:
Results in 3-5 minutes (unproven) [5].
Test Sample Type:
One drop of blood from finger-stick or venous [5].
Technology Overview:
Ativa’s Diagnostic Workstation (under development) will be a desktop device for use in point-of-care facilities. Using microfludic test chips, a blood sample will be analyzed and uploaded into a cloud-based analysis software. This data ( a “Digital Blood Sample”) will be compared to other samples, and the artificial intellignece neural network will scan for patterns of known disease, while adapting to the patterns of new diseases. Ativa asserts that the system will be able to perfrom the most common diease screens, while also adapting to new diseases, such as COVID-19 [5].
Testing Type:
Microfluidic blood analysis, machine-learning sample analysis [5]. Combines “all five of the major blood, metablic and urine panels on one system.” [5].
Test Category:
Test Name:
Ativa Diagnostic Workstation [5].
Clinical Application & Need:
Ativa aims to have their product used in point-of-care facilities globally, to detect common dieases, while also adapting to new diseases via machine-learning [5].
Age of Company:
12 years old, founded in 2008 [4]
