Company Summary

We are commercializing a hand-held testing platform, the iNDxer, which can rapidly count bacterial and viral pathogens in complex biological samples. Initially we will target Salmon aquaculture farms that are in dire need of an on-site method to identify disease before it spreads and causes significant economic loss. The platform is universal though allowing for easy expansion into food safety testing and human clinical diagnostics.
