BaDx (Bacillus Anthracis Diagnostics)

Sandia National Laboratories, NM, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

BaDx is a stand-alone, diagnostics cartridge used in resource-limited and challenging environments to sense real-world concentrations (>100 spores) of virulent B. anthracis, the bacteria that causes anthrax infection.

Primary Application Area: Biotech & Biological Sciences

Technology Development Status: Proven Manufacturability

Technology Readiness Level: TRL 4

FIGURES OF MERIT

Value Proposition: We have developed a robust and portable diagnostic device for detection of bacteria in ultra-low resource environments. It requires no power, no extra equipment and little training to operate. It is secure and self-sterilizes upon test completion. When mass-produced, we expect the cost to be less than $5 per device.
