ABOUT THE COMPANY:
Inflammatix, Inc. is a venture-backed startup located in the San Francisco Bay Area that is building novel diagnostics for acute infections and sepsis based on our unique immune biomarkers. Approximately $10 billion / year is spent trying to diagnose acute infections, but current technologies that focus on 'finding the bug' are (1) slow and (2) effective in fewer than 30% of cases. Inflammatix has developed a statistically rigorous, extensively validated diagnostic method that 'reads' the immune system. Our HostDx(TM) tests report clinically actionable information on the presence, type (bacterial or viral), and severity of infection in all patients. They have been extensively validated and published in top-tier medical journals. This first product will be a rapid diagnostic for use in hospitals and clinics. After this initial product, Inflammatix plans to develop and commercialize additional novel diagnostic tests to address significant unmet clinical needs.
