Rapid Blood Analysis

What we Do

Our device

A blood count is used for diagnostic purposes in many diseases, as it can provide information about a patient’s health status like no other procedure. Our device, Rapid Blood Analysis (RBA), eliminates costly and time-consuming procedures for patients, pyhsicians and laboratories. Affected patients can access their blood values, corresponding visualizations and trends at any time via an app. In the event of an emergency, long-term therapy or drug abuse, medications can be administered venously.


RBA is able to provide comprehensive vital data from a patient


Precision medicine enables more efficient and accurate patient treatment


Individuals have access to their own vital data, which can increase motivation for a healthy lifestyle

Medication and emergency support

Permanent venous access enables quick action of the administered drugs, which can be particularly important in an emergency. Depending on the user, emergency contacts can be informed in such a case and if necessary a GPS location can be sent along.

Hyperspectral Imaging

RBA uses the HIP-MED camera to acquire high-resolution hyperspectral images of the blood.

Machine Learning

Machine learning techniques, such as deep convolutional neural networks and radiomics analysis, are applied to visually evaluate the hyperspectral images. Statistical methods are used to calculate trends and to infer the population of the blood.

Clinical decision support

The device is intended for clinical decision support. The attending physician has access to the patient’s health status and can make a diagnosis, decide on the further course of therapy or the administration of medication. For this purpose, the device provides suggestions to the physician.
