Real-Time Pathogen Detection by nanoRETE

nanoRETE, Inc. is a Michigan-based company that is developing a platform to provide real-time detection of pathogens and markers using customized, proprietary nanoparticle biosensors. The company’s platform has the ability to test for single or multiple species (e.g., proteins, small molecules, nucleic acids, cells, etc.) by employing a simple-to-use handheld device which can generate screening results in approximately two hours at a significantly lower cost than potentially competing products. Initial applications of the technology are targeted towards novel diagnostics and homeland security.
