Even a mild illness can put chemotherapy patients at risk of developing a condition called neutropenic sepsis.
Neutropenic sepsis is a life-threatening emergency, so patients are rushed to hospital if they show any symptoms.
However, 50% of patients turn out not to have the condition, and therefore suffer unnecessary stress and receive unnecessary antibiotics.
NeutroCheck® is a fast, reliable and low-cost device to test for neutropenic sepsis symptoms at home.
NeutroCheck enables rapid management of the condition for those who test positive, and gives peace of mind to those who don't.
NeutroCheck aims to improve patient safety and quality of life, reducing antibiotic wastage, and empowering doctors to treat their patients efficiently.
