Spot On Sciences, Inc. develops and markets innovative medical devices that revolutionize collection and storage of biological fluids for diagnostic testing and medical research. Based in Austin, TX, initial products, HemaForm™ and HemaSpot™, enable remote collection of blood samples offering solutions for multiple markets including clinical trials, biobanking, home-based diagnostics, military field medicine and population studies.
The company was founded in early 2010 by Dr. Jeanette Hill to improve access to healthcare and diagnostic testing for elderly, homebound, rural and economically disadvantaged patients by allowing easy remote sample collection and shipment. Spot On Sciences aspires to change existing paradigms in this mature market with technologies that simplify processes, save time and reduce costs. The firm was selected in 2011 as a finalist for the prestigious Cartier Women’s Initiative Award. For more information visit the company’s website at www.spotonsciences.com.
