Missing real-time health data

The problem

Missing real-time health data

Massive decentralization of diagnostic testing & physiological monitoring is an urgent, unsolved problem. Rapid methods that can be used to conduct self-testing across the population are critical tools for the management of pandemics, the effective delivery of healthcare to those affected by chronic disease and enabling personal wellness. While at-home testing has become possible for glucose, there are no tools available for most of the other biomarkers of interests.

Universal sensors for rapid, continuous monitoring in biological fluids

The solution

Universal sensors for rapid, continuous monitoring in biological fluids

Based on a novel biosensing approach called the “Molecular Pendulum”, Arma Bioscience has developed a rapid, versatile sensor platform to enable continuous monitoring of a multitude of physiological markers. The Arma platform’s sensing tips are compatible with saliva, blood, urine, sweat, and tears, and can be quickly developed to detect for various health indications. Seerave placed a seed investment into Arma Biosceince with the conviction that their expertise around label-free biosensor technology could be key in enabling wearable biosensors in the future.
