Cerba HealthCare (Issy Les Moulineaux – France) and Loop Medical (Lausanne – Switzerland) can now confirm their partnership following the approval of a needle-free blood-sampling machine.
Loop Medical is developing a needle-free blood-sampling machine that will make the process of blood sampling painless and more simple as the analysis is carried out in centralised technical platforms. On top of all this, it is compatible with the pre-existing analytical equipment in medical analysis laboratories. A connectivity system also ensures the traceability of the sample from when it is taken until the results are given.
As part of this partnership, Loop Medical will benefit from Cerba HealthCare’s technical, scientific and medical support to finalise the development and refine the market-access strategy and the commercialisation of this revolutionary product.
“We are thrilled to announce this strategic partnership that is proof of Loop Medical’s potential to revolutionise blood sampling by finding a solution that will not only improve the patient’s experience, but the samplers’ safety and the traceability of samples. This support from one of the world leaders in clinical pathology represents a major boost for our development, in a similar way to the support we receive from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation” stated Arthur Queval, Loop Medical founder and CEO.
“This partnership with Loop Medical shows we are following through with our open-innovation strategy that involves identifying early on innovative start-ups, and supporting them in their development to improve our patients’ experiences, while offering access to the most innovative tests” explained Jérôme Sallette, Innovation and Development Director of Cerba HealthCare.
