The world is getting smarter with newer technologies. SigTuple is a startup that focuses on developing rapid screening solutions for diagnosing different health conditions.
India has made significant advances in the field of medical sciences, in the availability of both, therapeutic and diagnostic solutions for numerous disorders. However, companies are now focusing on strategies that can diagnose medical conditions within minutes. This would enable a rapid onset of therapy and this saves human life.
SigTuple, a start-up based in Bangalore, Karnataka, has been jointly established by Mr Rohit Kumar Pandey, Mr Tathagato Rai Dastidar and Mr Apurv Anand. They have introduced a solution that can facilitate rapid diagnosis of a patient’s medical condition. Here, medical data of a patient is obtained immediately through smarter, online technology.
SigTuple facilitates smart solutions for quick medical diagnosis by using advanced Artificial Intelligence techniques. In simpler terms, ‘Artificial Intelligence’ is the information that is provided by machines, that work like human brains when the data is fed to them.
A revolutionary breakthrough in artificial intelligence is that it allows machines to understand the scientific data and present results or offer solutions that could save lives. Selection of this technology can drastically improve the speed of medical diagnosis, enhance its outcomes and make it accessible worldwide. This is made possible by activating the static medical data.
100 million Indians are greater than 100 km away from a well resourced medical centre. Globally, over 400 million people do not have access to a hospital in a 100 km radius. Here is how SigTuple will make a difference in the lives of millions!
SigTuple has brought its collaborations with smaller clinics and larger hospital. The samples of the patients from the clinics are collected and tested for the presence of specific pathogens. The reports are generated online and sent to the medical staff/doctor for further immediate analysis. This saves time from the traditional methods of physically analyzing the reports and taking it from one location to another. As a result, appropriate treatment can be immediately initiated, and help to save a precious human life.
Services by SigTuple consists of domains like management and discovery, processing and analysis, native Al support, annotation and verification, continuous learning and insightful analysis. These domains offer a wide choice of services that may be appropriate to a particular patient.
SigTuple has received funding from institutional investors like Accel, IDG Ventures India, Endiya, Pie, VH, and AXILOR. It has raised a total of $45.4Mn across six funding rounds till date, from Accel Partners, IDG Ventures, Endiya Partners, Flipkart co-founders Mr. Sachin Bansal and Mr. Binny Bansal, Pi Ventures, Axilor Ventures and other investors.
In addition, the field of media has highly recognised their work over the last three years. Above all, its innovative breakthrough in the field of medical sciences has made this startup reach the height and have also made a significant contribution to saving the lives of many critical patients.
SigTuple was named among India’s most innovative startups by Inc42 in 2018. After that, it was recognised by the government's think-tank NITI Aayog’s CEO Amitabh Kant as the notable AI startups. With such rising advancements, it wouldn’t be far that the company will find itself in the list of top successful startups in the world.
