Sight Diagnostics

Sight Diagnostics

Sight is a blood diagnostic company based in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Sight’s analyzer machine, "OLO", performs a Complete Blood Count, a commonly ordered blood test. It can complete results in minutes. It’s compact: designed to be used in a mobile capacity.

Their analyzers create a digital version of blood, by capturing 1,000 highly detailed images of a finger prick sample, which is then interpreted by algorithms. Sight’s first product was focused on detecting Malaria, used in 24 countries, and has delivered almost 1 million tests to date.

History

Their OLO product came to fruition five years ago, with the introduction of Sight’s advanced algorithms to detect Malaria.

The solution enabled quick diagnoses using digital fluorescent microscopy and computer vision algorithms.
