Creating a new generation of
instant bioelectronic diagnostics
to transform the detection, diagnosis and surveillance of
infectious disease worldwide.
We use novel biosensor technology to make possible label-free electrical detection of specific biomolecules with great precision and at low cost.
Pathogens such as viruses, bacteria and fungi can be accurately and rapidly detected with a handy, easy-to-use handheld device.
Our general-purpose platform uses swappable cartridges to detect specific pathogens in samples of blood, saliva or other biofluids.
Flexible. Pinpoint's multi-channel nanosensors can detect specific markers of infectious disease: viral and bacterial proteins, host antibodies, and nucleic acid sequence.
Fast. Results are displayed in less than 30 seconds.
Potential applications include human infectious disease diagnosis, pathogen surveillance for agriculture, ranching, veterinary medicine, wildlife management; monitoring infectious disease agents among poultry, wildfowl and insect vectors; detecting microbial contamination in food processing and so much more.
We are working to commercialize this technology, based on functionalized nanopipettes developed by Dr Nader Pourmand, Professor of BioMolecular Engineering at the University of California at Santa Cruz and Pinpoint's Chief Scientist. This patented technology has been validated in numerous peer-reviewed publications.
