Detecting Pathogens Takes Too Long
Our patented CAPTURE (Confirm Active Pathogens Through Unamplified RNA Expression) technology solves this problem, and we are now developing a portable instrument to screen for hundreds of pathogens within an hour for less than $20.
GeneCapture's unique approach to disease diagnostics uses rapid RNA-based technology to bring infection detection to the Point of Care; whether that’s a hospital bed, an airport, a cruise ship, or a battlefield.
When my daughter was born the medical team was concerned she might have pneumonia. After three days of antibiotics, worry and suspense, we were told “Good news! - no pneumonia!” But that got me thinking about all the misdiagnoses and undetected illnesses out there, so I began looking for a solution. We’ve now assembled an exceptional team of scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs to make rapid diagnostics a reality. Everyone on our team has a story about a misdiagnosis - so this is personal.
