Hiring Company Description
Coupled with vaccines for Covid-19, the world needs low-cost Saturation Level
Testing that can be performed by anyone, anywhere, at any time. Instant testing is the key element to end
this pandemic, and quickly assess and control the spread of many infectious
diseases around the world.
This new testing technology will be ultra-low-cost with comparable results to PCR tests overcoming lab-based limitations with portability for global use. We plan to ramp manufacturing rapidly for high-volume device manufacturing and produce more than 10 million strips per day using existing glucose strip manufacturing lines to support a broad set of diagnostics for global distribution.
Blink Science is expanding its core technology through patent coverage and
developing a comprehensive digital health platform that includes mobile apps
for results verification, personal digital health passport, data transfer with
real-time cloud aggregation, third party interoperability, and next-generation
IP of using MEMS “Smart chip in testing strips” for multi-functional
testing. The company has several notable
Fortune 500 collaborations at the present time and growing.
