Brevitest Technologies Becomes First Remote Resident of Baltimore’s LaunchPort™ Manufacturing Accelerator
Date:5/6/2020

The LaunchPort™ announced today that Brevitest Technologies (Houston, Texas, http://www.brevitest.com) will become the latest out-of-state company to partner with the device accelerator located in the Port Covington region of Baltimore’s Inner Harbor.

Brevitest has developed a point-of-care analyzer capable of accurately performing enzyme-linked immunosorbent assays (ELISAs), the gold standard for measuring concentrations of molecules in solution. Unlike ELISAs done in laboratories, the technology is portable with a run time of less than 15 minutes. Developed as a platform technology, capable of performing a wide variety of tests with laboratory-quality sensitivity and specificity, the assays are targeted at numerous clinical, forensic, environmental and lifestyle applications. The newest version of the device is currently undergoing review to allow rapid point-of-care COVID-19 testing.

The unique nature of the relationship – which involves both LaunchPort and Engineering Medical Systems – gives Brevitest immediate access to design control and manufacturing protocols that will allow their internal development team to convert the functional prototypes to a marketable product in a little over a month. Simultaneously, those reviews are preparing the product for the eventual broader launch into opioid testing and other infectious diseases.

Robert Storey, Managing Partner of The LaunchPort™, noted that Brevitest is a portfolio company of Fannin Innovation Studio (fannininnovation.com), a life sciences venture development firm that was the brainchild of Leo Linbeck, CEO of Houston’s Aquinas Companies. Storey commented, “Fannin has put together a portfolio of therapeutics and devices technologies that have come out of the Houston medical ecosystem and they bring a creative approach to venture development. We feel the LaunchPort concept is equally innovative and we’ve been looking for ways to collaborate for a number of years. We’re excited at this first step, particularly in an area that is so crucial to our current fight against the pandemic.”
