AKI Detection

EFFLUX is a point-of-care acute kidney injury (AKI) monitoring device for hospital, medical, surgical and ICU patients. EFFLUX is the first in class point-of-care AKI detection device, which is revolutionizing the way ICU patients are treated, monitored and diagnosed. It is compact, lightweight, adjusts to fit any hospital bed, and comes with a user-friendly interface. 


No Lengthy Waits for Lab Results

EFFLUX not only provides requisite early detection, it also provides on-going patient monitoring without the need to send numerous samples to the laboratory and having to wait for the results. This is made possible due to the nature of the device with real-time, point-of-care monitoring of numerous biomarkers. This provides physicians with the data stream necessary to manage patients that have quickly deteriorating kidney function complicated by the treatments being administered.


Hands On Integration

EFFLUX  drastically changes the landscape, enabling healthcare providers to obtain critical data points  from urine flow at their fingertips, that are both real-time and relevant to determining a patient's risk for AKI; results they are unable to achieve from current lab tests. Present-day systems involve arduous, time consuming, and laborious processes. The introduction of EFFLUX  effectively makes these outdated procedures obsolete.
