A novel enzymatic means for nasogastric tube placement
Case Study – Ingenza Ltd
The NIHR Diagnostic Evidence Co-operative (DEC) London and Scottish SME Ingenza are collaborating to assess and develop a novel enzyme-based test for the accurate positioning of nasogastric feeding tubes (NG tubes). Incorrect positioning of NG feeding tubes can lead to severe harm or death. This project aims to develop a more accurate test for determining the position of NG tubes for safe feeding.
