Point-of-Care Hematology

Cellia is revolutionizing the point-of-care hematology through the development of devices based on the following innovations:

  • Label-free UV imaging of blood cells. By utilizing the inherent UV absorbance of nucleic acids and proteins within cells, high-quality images of live cells can be obtained without fixation or staining
  • Algorithm-based cell identification and classification. Capable of identifying erythrocytes, platelets, and performing a full 5-part white blood cell differential
  • Microfluidics to enable point-of-care testing. Point-of-care testing with just a drop of blood from a finger prick or venous sample
