Their platform technology aims to enable doctors to confirm infection within minutes, stopping the use of incorrect and unnecessary prescription of antibiotics.
FluoretiQ’s new CMO, Mr Kasra Saeb-Parsy is a Consultant Urologist with Cambridge (UK) University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Mr. Saeb-Parsy will oversee and lead all clinical development, regulatory and medical affairs strategies and activities of the Company.

FluoretiQ’s platform is called NANOPLEX and has the potential to identify and enumerate bacteria at the point-of-care. Mr Saeb-Parsy explains “The work carried out by FluoretiQ using their NANOPLEX technology platform paves the way for rapid and accurate diagnosis of UTIs and the identification of the causative organism. This allows more appropriate and tailored antibiotic use rather than our current practice of initiating antibiotics whilst awaiting the results of microscopy and culture which can often take up to 72 hours or longer.“
