We power biology


We build technological solutions that deliver meaning, not just data. We’re helping food producers assess microbial risk from farm to consumer. We do so by integrating the latest in single cell transport and characterization with predictive data systems.

MAGDRIVE

MagDrivetechnology is core to our PIPERplatform. It allows us to interact, sort and manipulate cells with a single-cell resolution directly from complex samples ranging from lettuce to fecal matter.

INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGY

The PIPERplatform automates tasks such as sorting, enumeration and selection of cells based on viability and other biomarkers. Powered by MagDrive™, PIPERuses unique active transportation to overcome the restrictions of diffusion. Doing so enables assaying and quantification of variable sample volumes based on morphology, surface biomarkers and molecular signals while eliminating traditional requirements such as labeling, washing and filtration of raw samples.


MICROBIAL RISK ASSESSMENT AND MONITORING

PIPERprovides near real-time automated data collection and aggregation into intelligent, learning algorithms. It enables users to collect quantitative microbial data on pathogenic and non-pathogenic microorganisms in the food ecosystem. This information allows food processors to make timely decisions on operations, spoilage and pathogen contamination related losses in the food industry.
