- Short description
We are building a solid-state nanopore device that can count individual SARS-CoV-2 virions in diverse bodily fluids without reagents or a cold chain.
- Who is already working on this
We're a YC-backed nanotech-for-biotech startup with four full-time employees currently, 3 of whom are cohabitating in quarantine with access to a prototype lab.
- How far along it is
We are close to a manufacturable first prototype that we expect to be useful in detecting SARS-CoV-2 by June/July, with turnkey usability by the end of the summer.
- Demo, mockups, or documentation
This shows some of our early data (from more than a year ago) as well as the first minute of our YC Demo day pitch. https://drive.google.com/file/d/16tXZ0VyN3z33c0Idiw63ko_cwfcF-z3f/view
