Abstract (Summary)

Approximately every 40 seconds, an American will have a heart attack. Accurate and immediate biomarker testing at the emergency room is an imperative component of the initial diagnosis of patients. Implementation of Point-of-Care testing (POCT) for heart attack biomarkers have shown to improve patient outcome and operational efficiency. RAPIDKardia Diagnostic, Inc. will enter the POCT industry by introducing a device capable of detecting a specific biomarker to diagnose a heart attack. This proposal will outline what is required to begin RAPIDKardia Diagnostic, Inc. and maintain the business through profitability.
