Acumen Research Labs

Acumen has developed AcuSeptTM — a novel, blood-based Sepsis Host Response test using sepsis-specific mRNA biomarkers — that can assist the doctos to detect sepsis in patients in 4-5 hrs, earlier and more accurately than current methods.

Intended Use:
AcuSeptTM generates diagnostic scores which fall in the range of either above or below a validated threshold level that determines the risk of sepsis. AcuSeptTM results are to be used in conjunction with clinical assessments and other laboratory findings as an aid to identify patients with low or high risk of infection and sepsis.

Clinical Utility:
・To differentiate patients with and without infection
・To differentiate patients with and without sepsis
・Can identify sepsis early

AyoxxA is a start-up company commercializing a novel technology platform developed at the National University of Singapore. This platform enables the measurement of a large number of different proteins and biomolecular analytes from a very small volume sample – so called “multiplexing” . In the field of genomic analysis, DNA microarrays have become a powerful tool. Yet, despite a rapidly growing multi-billion US$ market for protein analysis, comparable tools are not available at the protein level. AyoxxA addresses this need for multiplexed protein analysis with its platform technology of bead-based protein microarrays on a substrate biochip. This technology will benefit many disciplines, including biological research, pharmacological screening and medical diagnostics.

AyoxxA raised a Series A investment round of 4 Million US$ with several international venture capital companies as well as 1 Million US$ in grants in 2012. For 2013 AyoxxA is looking forward to closing a significantly larger multi-million US$ Series B investment.
