GeneCapture, Inc.

GeneCapture is a startup company developing a product to rapidly detect bacterial and viral infections in a portable instrument for use in clinics, field applications, airports, and at borders. The patented technique, which is now automated in a prototype, will screen germs in blood, urine, and wounds against a wide array of genetic signatures and report the results in less than 1 hour. The company is now beginning human sample validation tests. This rapid detection device could be applied to human and animal health as well as agriculture and bio-threats.
