Company: OmniVis | West Lafayette, IN
Mission: OmniVis works to create better health outcomes by designing affordable and easy-to-use technology solutions and devices that rapidly and accurately detect infectious diseases like cholera. Current cholera detection platforms are time intensive, costly, and imprecise, exacerbating wide-spread disease outbreaks throughout the world. This disease causes approximately 3 million cases across the globe each year and wastes $2 billion each year in treatments and lost productivity that could be avoidable through early detection. Using a revolutionary sensing technique to quantify and analyze bio-molecular solutions directly at the source, the OmniVis device and consumable test kit attaches to a smartphone and reduces the detection process to 30 minutes, accurately and affordably.
