QSM Diagnostics

Boston, MALife SciencesCohort: 2019-2020

QSM Diagnostics is fundamentally changing how bacterial infections are diagnosed and treated by exploiting bacterial communication (quorum sensing molecules) and virulence factors as biomarkers. The patented easy to use platform developed by QSM Diagnostics provides point-of-care diagnostic test results for bacterial infections in 2 minutes rather than the 2-3 day turnaround of standard tests, which allows doctors to provide better treatment and help mitigate the spread of antimicrobial resistance. The initial product line is being developed for the companion animal market, with a dog ear infection test set to launch in Q3 2020.
