How do you pronounce RheoDX? A CRM spin-off? Who is in office C1-014?

Rheo Diagnostics is a startup born in 2018 promoted by the Mobile World Capital Barcelona foundation. Its patented technology is born of the collaboration between the UB and the CRM.

Rheo Diagnostics develops a portable in-vitro diagnosis device for the analysis of the elastic properties of red blood cells and detect abnormalities fast (only takes 5 min) and cheaply with a single drop of blood. The test consists of a microfluidic consumable, a reader system and a cloud server where the data is processed and translated into clinical evidence. It is a device with multiple applications in hematology, from diagnosis to monitoring of patients receiving blood transfusions.

With this activity we intend to give an overview of the company and its trajectory; What is the starting point of the project and its link to the CRM; When and which factors made possible the consolidation of RheoDX and what is our day-to-day life in terms of funding, experimental validation and product, and finally which is our letter to the kings for the next years.
