Outside of health, we have partners in industrial water monitoring, aquaculture, agriculture, conservation biology and more. High school students are testing for mislabeled sushi. Quantified Selfers are tracking their microbiome. Everyday users are even testing their own DNA for genetic markers.

We also recently began work on a multi-year, multi-million-dollar contract with the US Government. It's a good time to come onboard.
