Our values

  • We believe that access to high-quality, affordable diagnostics is a fundamental human right, and that patients should be empowered to understand their own health.
  • We believe that technological design should be adapted to the needs of the end user, not the other way around.
  • We believe in scientific rigor, data transparency, and peer-review as critical mechanisms for guaranteeing patient safety and medical efficacy.
  • We believe in establishing an impact-driven research agenda that improves patient outcomes and addresses critical, long-standing pain points in the diagnostics industry.

Our team

Our team is passionate about improving human health, and is leveraging cutting-edge protein engineering techniques and extremophile biology to produce affordable, robust, and universally accessible diagnostics. We would love to meet like-minded individuals – we’re currently in the process of building our team, recruiting an advisory board, and connecting with potential investors. Please contact us to learn more!
