Year of investment: 2009

FABPulous develops a disposable device which allows for rapid semi-quantitative diagnostic testing in blood or plasma. The first application is for diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction, based on heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) as a biomarker. This test is able to demonstrate, within 2-3 minutes after drawing a drop of blood by means of a finger prick, whether or not H-FABP is elevated, which is indicative of an acute myocardial infarction.
