At Group K Diagnostics (GKD), we are aiming to change the diagnostic process for both patients and caregivers by increasing accessibility to what we believe to be one of the most important assessments of human health – the blood test.
Our team is developing a single-platform point-of-care device. The technology leverages paper microfluidics and proprietary image processing software to deliver test results in a short period of time.
Our team sees the potential to address more than 40 different types of blood tests, with the goal of streamlining the logistical process historically associated with lab work, maximizing patient-care transparency and allowing physicians to adjust medical treatments in a timely manner.
We are a team of dedicated innovators who are focused on bringing the best point of care test to market, and continually iterating new technologies to continue to stay at the forefront of testing.
