Emocha part­ners with Bel­gian firm to de­velop mo­bile di­ag­nos­tic de­vice

Baltimore Sun - - MARYLAND - — Sarah Gantz

Emocha Mo­bile Health, a Bal­ti­more health tech­nol­ogy startup, has been tapped by miDi­ag­nos­tics, a Bel­gian med­i­cal de­vice com­pany, to help de­velop di­ag­nos­tic de­vices that can re­lay test re­sults to smart­phones and tablets.

MiDi­ag­nos­tics, a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween the Johns Hop­kins Uni­ver­sity and Bel­gian na­no­elec­tron­ics re­search cen­ter imec, is devel­op­ing di­ag­nos­tic tests that can be em­bed­ded in sil­i­con chips. Emocha will build the cloud tech­nol­ogy plat­form that will al­low the test data to be trans­ferred dig­i­tally.

The chips even­tu­ally could be used to im­prove a wide range of di­ag­nos­tic tests, such as the com­plete blood count test, a com­mon blood test used to di­ag­nose dis­eases and mon­i­tor med­i­cal con­di­tions. The part­ner­ship is a sig­nif­i­cant step for Emocha, as the com­pany looks to val­i­date its health data anal­y­sis tech­nol­ogy and ex­pand its reach, said CEO Se­bas­tian Seiguer.
