Our company develops bio-medical analytical devices, 

such as HemaDrop™ for its manufacturer, MicroDrop Diagnostics.  

HemaDrop™ is a new rapid blood diagnostics technology developed  & patented by SiO2 Innovates LLC to make Homogeneous Thin Solid Films (HTSF) from a few microliters of blood 

Within one single blood test, using about 10 microliter of blood, 

HemaDrop™ detects and  measure in mg/dL with an accuracy of better than 10%, all blood electrolytes (Na, K, Mg, Cl, Ca, S) in a single test.

In the same test, HemaDrop™ provides simulataneously 

Fe levels, blood oxygenation, CO2, and heavy metals,.

HemaDrop can detect metal poisoning and semi-metals including As, Co, Hg, Cd, and Pb, 

HemaDrop can also detected blood protein levels, level of hydration, calcium levels, etc.  with 10% accuracy. 

HemaDrop™ has a built-in calibration system of better than 3% accuracy to ensure better than 10% reliability of the blood analysis provided.

We are Covid-19 ready and hold all meetings via teleconferencing.

We lead innovations at the intersection of phsyics and engineering, prototyping and manufacturing, technology and product design.

Our most recent projects include:  


InnovaDrop™  & MetallOx™

Rapid Analysis of Water Analysis (RAWA) uses yet another technology recently patented by iSiO2, called InnovaDrop™ 

Similar to HemaDrop™, InnovaDrop™  uses

just microliter-sized droplets of liquids. 

Unlike HemaDrop™, InnovaDrop™ is designed to ensure that the liquid droplet is rapidly precipitated.

InnovaDrop™ uses a new proprietary coating, MetallOx, on a patented small collection substrate.

The collection substrate is  designed to optimize micro-fluidics, accuracy, reliability, safety, portability, and to be benign for the environment.

InnovaDrop™ yields solidified thin films from water samples within minutes.

These thin films can be analyzed within minutes using a handheld device and a smartphone, hence the name RAWA.

InnovaDrop™ and RAWA are 100% portable, lightweight and can be deployed in the field, in the lab, or a manufacturing floor 

RAWA is especially useful for black water analysis, heavy metals water contamination and spills, and in radioactive  incidents involving water pollution such as Fukushima. 

Using just one 10 microliters droplet  of liquid and immediately solidifying the flattened droplets into thin films increases the safety of users  dramatically. 

Each collection substrate provides four sampling wells for up to four drops, to  insure measurements accuracy better than 3%.



Rapid Urine Micro-Analysis (RUMA)  uses  just a drop of urine.  which is rapidly precipitated on a collection slide and can be analyzed within minutes, whether in the field,  the Dr.'s office, the ER, the hospital, or refugee/military camps

The use of three drops increases accuracy and reliability of measurements to better than
