How it works

 

Our technology is built on advances in glycan chemistry and quantum optics, packaged in an easy to use and scalable offering.

Bacteria is identified by proprietary nano-material labels which are then identified using an advanced optical measurement system, in a simple 3 step process.

 
 
 

1.

 Fluorescent Carbon Dots (FCDs) are man-made nanomaterials that can be modified to selectively attach to bacteria
