Revolutionizing sepsis detection for early intervention
Loop Diagnostics is a biotech company that develops a diagnostic tool for sepsis, using an in vitro cellular immunoassay to detect it within the first hour of bloodstream infection. Their goal is to reduce disease severity and mortality rates through timely and effective treatment.
30% of mortality rate & causes 6 million deaths each year
€32 billion sepsis costs per year
Timely diagnosis and treatment are critical in managing sepsis
Complex diagnostic challenge
We have developed a new first-class in vitro cellular immunoassay that detects sepsis within the first hour of bloodstream infection.
Our patented method and kit identify immune activity biomarkers with a sensitivity 3 times greater than the leading competitor, PCT. Additionally, our diagnostic process is 10 times faster than pathogen identification.
Our biomarker can be detected as early as one hour after infection, significantly earlier than the current standard biomarker (PCT). This early detection will enable healthcare providers to initiate accurate treatment at an earlier stage, reducing disease severity and minimizing the need for antibiotics or other drugs.
Enrique Hernández (CEO), during his Postdoctoral studies at Bellvitge Hospital in Barcelona, discovered the importance of analyzing the immune system to detect sepsis early. He recognized that traditional detection methods relied on clinical signs and symptoms, often indicating advanced disease. Hernández’s research focused on endotoxin tolerance in the innate immune system, realizing that changes in gene expression and immunological profiles could provide valuable information for early sepsis detection. Inspired by this scientific insight, he founded Loop Diagnostics, developing a technology that analyzes these factors to enable accurate and timely sepsis diagnosis. Hernández’s innovation has significantly advanced the field of sepsis detection, providing healthcare professionals with a precise tool for early intervention and improved patient outcomes.
