Heard About Theranos? Here's 3 Other Blood-Testing Startups: Tasso

TassoHemoLink Name: Tasso



Name: Tasso

Technology: Similar to Seventh Sense Biosystems (7SBio) and Spot On Sciences, Tasso also has developed a device that allows people to take blood at home relatively painlessly.

The HemoLink device uses microneedles and microfluidic technology to collect blood either from the arm or abdomen. The sample collected can be mailed to a clinical lab and can be used for a broad range of diagnostic applications. Tasso is working with GenTegra to stabilize the blood in dry form prior to the patient shipping it out to a laboratory.

Headquarters: Seattle, Washington

President & Cofounder: Ben Moga
