Small-volume, easy-to-use, ultrasensitive protein assays

About Us

THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE AND WELLNESS

Wellness self-testing and telemedicine-based diagnostics are quickly growing trends. Both increasingly rely on the ability to quantify miniscule amounts of protein biomarkers from at-home collected samples. Platform technologies that  enable ultrasensitive detection from small sample volumes and fit into existing workflows for sample collection, processing, and detection, are needed to enable these highly-valued trends.​
