About the Company

SiPhox Health is a hardware-first health-tech company.

Backed by Y Combinator, Intel, and Khosla Ventures we've spent 4 years building a hardware platform for at-home consumer blood diagnostics. In parallel, we launched (October 2022) a B2C + B2B2C platform that fuses mail-in blood biomarker testing with wearables data for personalized health insights.

We are the only D2C diagnostics or DaaS (Diagnostics as a Service) company that builds blood testing hardware.

Company Mission

SiPhox Health is focused on increasing human healthspan by:

  • Deploying a consumer blood testing platform that delivers lab-quality results in the home
  • Building an ecosystem around this platform to enable data-driven healthcare
