Point of Care Device (UC Berkeley)

Team Members: Octavian Florescu, Karl Skucha and Tayson Siegel

School: UC Berkeley

We are developing a novel, easy-to-use, patent-pending, point-of-care platform for multiplexed, digital disease detection. We have applied digital Integrated
Circuit (IC) technology, the same technology that has underpinned the IT revolution, to encapsulate the performance of a laboratory assay in the palm of the hand. We envision that our device will be capable of communicating with computers via Ethernet and with cell phones via Bluetooth to enable truly distributed, low-overhead, diagnostic testing.
