Chempaq, a spinout company from the Microelectronics Center at the Technical University of Denmark, has been awarded The Engineer's Product Prize 2005 for the development of a blood analyser. The award was presented by the Minister for Economic and Business Affairs Bendt Bendtsen, at an Innovation and Product Development conference held by the Danish Society of Engineers, Copenhagen.

The prize is awarded to a product which has significant technological news value, broad societal importance and is based on cutting edge engineering capabilities. Chempaq XBC (eXpress Blood Counter) is reportedly the world's first point of care blood analyser designed for GPs who need immediate access to blood test results. The analyser is simple to use and has the size of a telephone.

The prize panel said: "An amazing example of a start-up company which has gained much in a short time. The product is wrapped in high-tech, reduced in size and made available at low price". Chempaq competed with 36 other products.

Chempaq was founded in 1999 and is based in Farum, north of Copenhagen. In 2005, the firm acquired market authorisation for Chempaq XBC in Europe. Investors are BioFund Management, InnFond, Symbion Capital, the Danish Fund for Industrial Growth and Vecata. The news was reported by Ingeniøren (The Engineer).
