Jani Tuomi of Microdrop’s imaware at-home health testing
Jani Tuomi the Co-founder of Microdrop imaware™ at-home health testing joins Enterprise Fit Radio. Tuomi is part of founding team at imaware™, a revolutionary new at-home testing platform for chronic illness including celiac disease and rheumatoid arthritis.
Listen to host Eric Dye & guest Jani Tuomi discuss the following:
- Tell us more about Microdrop and imaware. How did the company first come to fruition and what is imaware?
- Why do you feel people more than ever now are inclined to take home based tests rather than visiting the doctor?
- You recently got validated by a very coveted scientific journal. Tell us why you decided to contact the journal and what this published paper means for the at-home testing community?
- What did the data prove?
- How did you decide which at-home tests to start with? And was the decision based on feasibility or was it based on clinical priorities?
- What are the limits of at-home testing? Do you envision a world where eventually we can do hundreds of tests routinely just as a matter of staying on top of one’s health or is there a limit to what types of test make sense to do at home?
- How much has the Theranos controversy hurt imaware, if at all? Do you encounter significant skepticism from investors or the public?
- You currently test for rheumatoid arthritis and for celiac disease. Are you releasing any additional tests this year?
- Whom are the faces behind Microdrop besides yourself and who is supporting the imaware initiative?
- What is some advice you can provide for others who are just starting a company. Is there anything you wish you had known or would have done differently when just starting?

The imaware™ mission is to help reduce the number of individuals with undiagnosed illness through at-home testing. We utilize home-based small-volume blood collection, and microarray lab-testing equipment with high sensitivity and specificity, to give consumers actionable reports and insights. Once aware of their conditions, patients can engage their doctors who can diagnose symptoms.
