Clinical Trials

Functional Fluidics biomarkers can determine the effects of your experimental therapy on red blood cell function and assess dose-dependent pharmacodynamic effects in the context of clinical trials by assessing blood samples from study subjects treated with your therapy.

Our goal is to support our partners in completing this phase to bring safe, life changing therapies to market.

Proprietary Lab Developed Tests

Whether your drug is in preclinical development or it already been approved by the FDA, healthcare providers will need well-validated biomarkers to objectively assess the impact on red blood cell health, and ultimately patient health. Our suite of proprietary cell function assays can help validate assumptions or support clinical claims.

  • Flow Adhesion:
    Our Flow Adhesion Assays capture the adhesive properties of an individual’s blood cells during conditions that simulate physiologic blood flow.
  • Mechanical Fragility (MF):
    Our Membrane Fragility assay determines the stability of the intact RBC membrane, which indicates the health of the RBC and may predict RBC survival.
