Oxford MediStress CEO appears on Sky's Chrissy B show

Oxford MediStress Ltd, a University of Oxford spin-out company commercializing a patented blood test for the rapid, direct, quantitative measurement of stress, announced that its CEO was recently interviewed on a popular health and wellness TV show.

Dr David Sarphie recently appeared on Sky’s “Chrissy B Show”, a popular program devoted to health and wellness subjects. On the show Dr Sarphie discussed his background and described the benefits of Oxford MediStress’s CopingCapacity™ test. The proprietary blood test provides a highly sensitive indication of stress levels, offering the first direct way to monitor and quantify how an individual is coping with their stress. A tiny drop of blood from a finger-prick is mixed with chemicals which mimic a bacterial challenge. The ability of the leukocytes (white blood cells) to respond to such an in vitro challenge is evaluated using a standard laboratory procedure. Results and interpretation are available within minutes, so that action can be taken, if required.

Commenting on the test kit, Dr Sarphie said: “We were thrilled to be invited onto the show to discuss our unique product and how it can be used to help individuals suffering from stress.” The video link can be found at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4tqzf1L–g
