PathSensors Inc. Announced the Completion of Phase I of a SBIR
Date:6/11/2020

PathSensors Inc., a Baltimore biotechnology company, announced today the completion of Phase I of a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program funded by the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) entitled “Food Safety in the 21st Century: Rapid Toxin Detection in the Field”. The project’s goal was to engineer and develop a field-deployable instrument for portable pathogen and toxin detection.

Based on PathSensors’ Zephyr™, a laboratory-based platform, the engineering team created a new instrument combining several components of the existing instrument into a miniaturized case. The battery-operated instrument is portable and reduces the number of manual steps required to test samples.

With the mission of making the world a safer place, PathSensors has taken on the challenge of reducing foodborne illnesses. Paired with CANARY™ biosensors, the new platform will enable users to detect critical foodborne pathogens to ensure the food supply is safe for the consumer. This new technology will contribute to the USDA’s strategic goal of providing Americans with safe and secure food.

“The Zephyr™ is a current technology that empowers food processors and protects consumers from foodborne pathogens,” says PathSensors’ President, Ted Olsen. “This new instrument will make CANARY™ technology available to even more food processors and support detection in the field.”

About CANARY™

CANARY™ is a biosensor technology that delivers extremely rapid detection of pathogens with high sensitivity and specificity. Originally developed by scientists at MIT–Lincoln Laboratory to combat bioterrorism threats, CANARY™ has been licensed and commercialized by PathSensors, Inc.
