Tech entrepreneurs from the University of Southampton have revealed the ground-breaking research innovations that will be launched at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) this January.
Researchers will launch the world’s first multipurpose disposable medical tests at the global showcase in Las Vegas, where the University of Southampton’s Future Worlds Accelerator is set to be the only UK university exhibitor for a fourth consecutive year.
University spinout Highfield Diagnostics will promote a new technology that is set to revolutionize the concept of ‘instant’ medical diagnostics at CES 2019.
Researchers from the University have developed the world’s first disposable test that can simultaneously perform separate diagnoses, from a single sample.
“This simple cost-effective and rapid testing represents a real breakthrough in universal healthcare monitoring and diagnosis in the home, the doctor’s surgery or even off-grid rural settings,” co-founder Professor Robert Eason explains.
Highfield Diagnostics can produce tests that show a considerable increase of sensitivity compared to current conventional tests, so patients can know much earlier if they are suffering from a particular condition.
The Future Worlds stand at CES 2019 will also include live demonstrations for start-ups founded by students from the University of Southampton, including the BOON gift discovery platform and the Intro contact sharing app.
Future Worlds is exhibiting University of Southampton startups and spinouts at CES 2019, the largest consumer technology show in the world, from Tuesday 8th January to Friday 11th January.
