About Us:

InnSight Technology, Inc is an innovative biotech startup that is dedicated to translational research initiatives that will advance diagnostics and evaluation of eye disease. Our primary focus is on the development and commercialization of the OcuCheck biosensor that is a novel, hand-held, point-of-service device for detection of biomarkers in the tear fluid. This is the first device of its kind to provide an accurate, objective measurement that can be used to assess the integrity of the corneal surface after surgery or trauma. The device is easy to use and provides immediate results. This device is a game-changer for use in eye clinics and by health personnel.
