Air support for emergencies

Dear Sir or Madam,

In case of big accidents with many casualties, rescue forces quickly need information about the condition of all the injured to decide whom to treat first. Until now, they are only able to determine the kind and degree of injuries after they have arrived on site. This could change in a few years when the "FALKE" flight system flies ahead and performs a screening. Learn more in our current video.

Enjoy watching!

For nearly two years, the COVID-19 pandemic has kept a firm grip on the world and caused many intensive care units to hit full capacity. It would help medical professionals tremendously if they could make a reliable prognosis the moment patients are hospitalized. A prognosis is especially useful when it comes to a targeted allocation of hospital resources. cfDNA screening could play an important role in the assessment of COVID-19 severity in patients.
