Das testifies that he explained the issues to Holmes using the example of female patients returning abnormal PSA levels (a prostate test) because “females should generally not have PSA detectable.”

There’s a list of “conditions” that were not met, including “analytic systems,” meaning the instruments and methods used. Das testifies that he discussed the issues with Holmes and the Theranos team.

Wow, Das testifies that when he started as lab director, he was not aware that of Theranos performing any tests that it had developed in-house. No tests on Edison, Minilab or TSPU. No tests on finger stick samples.

Kingshuk Das, a Theranos lab director, has taken the stand. Lowering the lights to show exhibits on a projector in the courtroom feels a bit like a Junior High science class. We see CLIA Lab rules that shows CMS (fed regulators) can revoke CLIA certificates for rule violations.

Redirect and re-cross were extremely short and Sawyer is excused. We’re breaking and another former lab director — Kingshuk Das — is up after lunch. I will be getting a ticket to go to the courtroom so I can actually see the projected exhibits!
