LIVE: Theranos is presenting its data in front of scientists for the first time

PHILADELPHIA — Theranos is presenting data at a scientific conference for the first time this afternoon.

The presentation is happening at the American Association for Clinical Chemistry’s annual conference at 4:30 p.m. Eastern time.

Here’s what to expect going into the presentation:

  • Theranos will be displaying the latest version of its blood-testing technology that uses only a finger-prick’s worth of blood, including the way the company collects and stores the blood and how it processes that blood sample. The company will also be demonstrating a diagnostic testing platform that’s “a compact fully-integrated and automated field-deployable,” according to the meeting abstract.
  • Theranos will be presenting data that intends to show how the company’s finger-prick blood test stacks up to a typical blood test that draws a few tubes of blood from a vein. But this data won’t necessarily be independently peer-reviewed.
  • There will be a moderated question and answer session after the presentation, in which attendees can ask questions.
