smart. safe. samples
It is all about the quality of medical decisions.
Smart4Diagnostics closes the data gap between blood collection and lab analysis and enables a new quality standard for diagnostic decision making. We change medical diagnostics from a trust-based system into an evidence-based system. Our digital human sample fingerprint is a quantum leap forward for patient safety, the quality of medical decisions and lab turnaround time. We create a trustworthy and verifiably basis for the personalized medicine of the future.
Our idea was born in the lab and the hospital. We come from practice - over many years we have worked with human samples. In our daily work we have realized that human samples did not meet our quality requirements and did not correspond with the technical quality of laboratory analyzers. This has negative consequences for the patient. As a result thousands of medical doctors receive inappropriate lab results every day, leading to an high number of inappropriate medical treatments for patients. We want to change this - we want to make sure that patients receive safe medical results, which they can trust.
Quality of human blood sample measurements in the lab
biologically not reliable
The information value of lab measurements could be optimized
