SIGNIFICANT EVENTS – SECOND QUARTER 2022
- Qlife’s scientific team has completed the development of and filed a patent application for a blood-to-plasma filtration unit for blood-based biomarker testing.

In short, the filtration unit is making the Egoo platform more versatile as it now can be used for testing plasma in addition to whole blood.
