Pinpoint Science is developing a new generation of low-cost handheld diagnostics to detect viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens in seconds. Pinpoint Science applies this unique nanosensor technology to empower doctors and patients alike with easy-to-use tests for infectious disease that give accurate results in seconds. Specific biomarkers—antibodies, antigens, toxins, nucleic acid sequences—are detected in blood, saliva, urine, or sputum with an inexpensive ($99) reader, $5 cartridges, and a mobile app.
Pinpoint’s platform can be adapted for any pathogen: influenza, malaria, TB, STDs, Zika, Ebola, and many more.
