  • Entia: hand-held blood-testing lab for cancer care patients

    Monitoring technology takes just a finger prick to carry out a blood test count that helps chemotherapy patients to manage their treatment. A London-based healthtech start-up has developed a hand-held blood testing kit that can be used at home by chemotherapy patients to tailor treatment to their specific needs. Entia’s Affinity™ monitor can reduce cancellations for chemotherapy appointments and limit hospital visits just for blood count checks. And that means there are more chemotherapy slots for other people awaiting urgent treatment. Entia is receiving a total of £1.14 million from Innovate UK, much of it through the Biomedical Catalyst, to work with The Royal Marsden Hospital on developing the Affinity monitor.
