Using period blood for non-invasive blood testing

Qvin is the first healthcare service to use period blood as an opportunity for non-invasive blood testing. Whilst 70% of doctors rely on blood tests to make a diagnosis, the blood female bodies naturally deliver has never been explored as an alternative testing source. Blood is collected via the Q-Pad - a sanitary pad that is linked by a QR code to a smart app, to unlock health information on hormones, vitamins, risk for diabetes, and HPV testing.

"If anyone can take this revolutionary step forward, it's Sara and Søren. Sara combines an outstanding track record as an entrepreneur with a strong academic background within medical sciences from Aarhus University, Harvard and Stanford, and Søren is a serial entrepreneur with profound operational experience from Copenhagen IT University, Singularity and Stanford. Needless to say, their strong academic background paired with tenacity and grit, makes them superior in the field."
