Bhubaneswar Startup Offers Painless Blood Tests with a Fingertip Scan for INR 30

Written by Watchdoq Newsportal. July 11, 2024

Imagine getting your blood tests done without a single prick! This futuristic concept is now a reality thanks to EzeRx, a Bhubaneswar-based startup. Their revolutionary device, EzeCheck, offers a painless, affordable, and rapid alternative to traditional blood tests.

This isn't science fiction. EzeCheck is a portable device that checks five key blood parameters – hemoglobin, oxygen saturation, bilirubin, creatinine, and blood glucose – simply by placing your finger on the sensor.  The results are delivered in a mere 10-20 seconds, all for a cost of just Rs 35!

A Breath of Fresh Air for Healthcare

For many of us, the dreaded "blood test" conjures images of needles and anxiety. EzeRx aims to change that by making preventive healthcare more accessible and appealing. Their mission? Early detection of health issues through easy and painless diagnostics.

Co-founder Partha Pratim Das highlights the importance of early detection: "One in eleven adults over 45 has chronic kidney disease, while almost 80% over 45 have diabetes. These are major problems, and if we can predict them early, it can revolutionize healthcare."

Innovation Made in India

The EzeCheck device boasts over 95% accuracy and has received certification from India's Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO). EzeRx is now setting its sights on international markets.

Beyond the Blood Draw

EzeRx isn't just about blood tests. They previously developed AJO, a non-invasive device that uses spectroscopy to analyze the conjunctiva (the clear membrane in your eye) for signs of anemia, jaundice, and oxygen saturation. Both EzeCheck and AJO are testaments to EzeRx's commitment to painless and bloodless diagnostics.

Beyond Diagnostics: Building a Connected Healthcare Ecosystem

EzeRx goes beyond offering innovative diagnostic tools. They also operate in two other key areas:

Teledentistry Networks: Providing access to quality dental care in rural and semi-urban areas.
OralOScope Solution: Detecting oral cancers and pre-cancerous lesions.
The Future of Healthcare is Painless

EzeRx's EzeCheck device is a game-changer, offering a glimpse into a future where blood tests are painless and readily available. The device-as-a-service (DaaS) model makes it accessible to hospitals, nursing homes, NGOs, and CSR organizations.

With its commitment to affordable, accessible, and painless diagnostics, EzeRx is paving the way for a healthier future for all. Source: YS
