Stasys Medical: Rapid Point-of-Care Trauma-Induced Coagulopathy Device

Focus: 

To construct a pre-production reader for blood coagulation effectiveness

Anticipated Impact: 

Quick and accurate analysis of defects in blood coagulation, allowing administration of appropriate blood products and therapy

Abstract: 

Trauma often induces coagulopathy, a complicated and poorly understood set of deficiencies in blood coagulation. Emergency medicine physicians are faced with minimal data to inform their decision to slow or speed up clotting, or support dissolution of the clot. Current devices to measure clotting are too slow and provide only partial information. Building on two previous LSDF grants, the proposed point-of-care device uses sensitive optics to quickly measure deflection of a micropost when stressed by a patient's blood clot. Appropriate blood products can be administered once the clot status is known. The project principally consists of developing a calibration prototype of the disposable card and a pre-production reader, then testing with human blood. Matching funds will come from a local angel investment fund.

A supplement was awarded to create an injection-molded fabrication scheme and sample run.

Stasys Medical recently filed a provisional patent through UW CoMotion to cover an addition to the Company's core measurement. Previously, the Company's core measurement was recognized to be faster that predicate systems. The additional IP results in a measurement that is not only faster, but more complete than other systems on the market; a significant competitive advantage.
