In order to identify unique blood based diseases, Sight developed proprietary staining solutions that can identify specific illnesses. Our research team spends countless hours staining patient blood to accumulate large libraries of individuals who are both positive and negative for the disease. Based on extensive R&D and data collection, our algorithm learns to detect the presence of the disease in the blood and provides an accurate diagnosis. This platform is applicable to a broad variety of illnesses that have markers which appear in the blood.
As a first application we have developed a patented stain solution to detect the presence of malaria in the blood. This solution has been optimized in our in-house laboratory and specifically binds to the genetic malaria material inside the RBC. Our R&D team has extensive experience in designing fluorescent technologies and envisions expanding our proprietary staining solutions to additional diseases.
