Q10: Stuart Hendry, CEO at Sphere Medical

Abstract:
Sphere, which was founded in 2002, is combining its patented microtechnology and nanotechnology to develop unique dice-sized microanalysers capable of measuring several key compounds such as, glucose, blood gases and drugs, simultaneously at low cost. Mortality in critical care remains unacceptably high, with associated costs of £billions annually. Real time measurement of drugs and physiological parameters, facilitating tight control of therapy, has been shown to dramatically improve patient outcomes, saving lives and money. Unfortunately, cost effective products to achieve this ideal are not currently available.
