Magnetic blood filtration

Medical device firm MediSieve was shortlisted for this year’s Hammersmith and Fulham Brilliant Business Awards.

Nominated in the Best Tech Start-Up category, it was put forward by Upstream, a joint venture between Imperial College and Hammersmith and Fulham Council.

MediSieve was established in 2015, as an independent company, having spun off from University College London and its magnetic blood filtration system can specifically and selectively remove disease-causing agents from the blood.

The device targets the specific components that are behind the diseases, before taking them out of the patient’s bloodstream.
