A handful of nurses in the Vercors mountains just outside of Grenoble have started testing Avalun’s LabPad® in a two-year pilot program backed by the Rhône-Alpes Regional Board of Health. The program coincides with the commercial launch of the device—a connected, pocket-sized testing lab that can measure blood coagulation from a single drop of blood taken from a finger prick. The device, which leverages Leti technology, sends the results to a local testing lab via Bluetooth.
In the meantime, Avalun is pursuing its joint lab with Leti, with a focus on improving its optoelectronic technology and, ultimately, offering new kinds of analyses, starting with blood sugar, triglyceride, and cholesterol levels.
