Affinity by Entia is a handheld device that empowers people with cancer to monitor their response to chemotherapy from home. With a simple finger prick test Affinity measures white blood cell platelet red blood cell counts and temperature; a selection of tests that enable a comprehensive assessment of a patient’s health. Affinity brings clinical diagnostics to the home and our cloud connected technology provides a secure real time link between patient and clinician. Chemotherapy suppresses rapidly dividing cells including white blood cells needed by the body to tackle infection. Severe infection can increase mortality and morbidity with every hour that it is left untreated. Monitoring blood cell counts at home using Affinity improves quality of life helps prevent the onset of life threatening infections and enables better scheduling of personalised treatment plans.
