SiPhox is a Khosla Ventures and Y-Combinator backed Boston startup developing point-of-need and at-home diagnostics.

Each disposable SiPhox Home cartridge can provide data on 7 biomarkers quantitatively using a small sample volume. Our first cartridge is a semi-quantitative COVID antigen and antibody test, with multiple cartridges in development across health and wellness.
