Rancho Dominguez, CA (PRWEB) August 07, 2014
ALine Inc. of Rancho Dominguez, CA is pleased to announce that it has been selected as a primary contractor for the development of the ChroMedX, Ltd. HemoPalm cartridge and analyzer technology for Point of Care testing. The goal is to complete construction of the prototype cartridge and analyzer to demonstrate functionality of the system by the first quarter of 2015.
Wayne Maddever, Ph.D., P.Eng., President and CEO of ChroMedX Ltd. said, “The experience and expertise of Leanna and her ALine team make them the perfect partner for the development of the HemoPalm system.”
Leanna Levine, Ph.D., President and CEO of ALine said, “We are excited about the potential for ChroMedX’s technologies and are pleased to be a part of this development.”
The HemoPalm system is comprised of a disposable cartridge and a handheld analyzer. The system measures co-oximetry, blood gases and electrolytes, in a patient’s blood, and the resulting analysis can provide a complete assessment of a patient’s acid-base and oxygenation status at the point of care (POC).
The leading competitors in POC testing require a second analyzer to provide CO-oximetry, which is the gold standard for measuring hemoglobin oxygen saturation and total hemoglobin. The ability to provide all the measurements described above in a single central laboratory analyzer has been available since the 1990s.
ChroMedX intends to be the first company to provide these measurements in a single handheld analyzer.
