PolySkope simultaneously detects all the most common food borne pathogens that cause death and financial ruin. Using our team's skill and expertise in clinical diagnostic multiplex assay development, we have created a multiplex pathogen detection RT-PCR assay for food. Simple and easy to use, our test uses a single overnight enrichment and sample prep to detect Shiga Toxin E. coli (including O157:H7), Salmonella and Listeria. This will reduce the cost of materials, labor, reagents, disposables, space, incubatory space, equipment and expensive instruments 3-fold. It makes comprehensive testing easy and affordable. Our C.S.O. and lead inventor, Michael Centola, previously founded Crescendo Bioscience and was lead inventor of their Vectra DA assay which sold for $270 M. This financing will take our technology through AOAC and ISO validation and into first sales.

Xcell Biosciences is a San Francisco-based life sciences company that has developed an innovative research and diagnostics platform utilizing its technology for capturing and growing tumor cells and immune cells directly from patient blood. By rapidly growing and expanding this rare cancer cell population into miniature tumors, the company has overcome key sample size limitations significantly impacting the ability to perform genetic analysis on this population of cells. As a result, the company is able to capture the comprehensive set of genetic information for each patient’s cancer and track changes to that dataset overtime, enabling the company to create a highly scalable, first-in-class big data solution for cancer. This patient-centric company is developing the platform as a high content liquid biopsy tool for cancer research and clinical use, including screening, monitoring, and managing unpredicted changes to a patient’s disease
