Mobile phones are helping to take conventional laboratory-based science into the field, the classroom and the clinic — all thanks to his smartphone and a handheld instrument known as the two3, made by Biomeme of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Biomeme, of Philadelphia, PA, has developed the world’s “smallest and most portable DNA detector” which operates via a simple iPhone interface. - See more at: http://hatcheryinternational.com/showcase/portable-smartphone-based-dna-detection-platform-provi
The biotech company just moved into a 4,500-square-foot office at 10th and Chestnut. The move is almost double the size of its previous 2,200-square-foot space in Old City, which was itself a step up from its shared office spaces with NextFab and Dreamit
Infectious diseases are a leading cause of death, especially among children in low-income and middle-income countries. Rapid, point-of-care (POC) identification of pathogens could help efforts to control and manage infectious diseases. For most infections

Dr. Peter Countway received a grant for his proposal to develop real-time PCR technology for the aquaculture industry in collaboration with Biomeme Inc. The project aims to utilize Biomeme’s handheld, real-time PCR device, the 'Two3', to detect Vibrio, a
Chronic disease causes seven out of ten deaths each year. Treating people with chronic disease accounts for 86% of our nation's health care costs. Solving health care issues tied to chronic disease involves many interlocking disciplines: prevention, care
Biomeme has developed a device that turns any iPhone into a mobile DNA lab to accurately perform tests to identify things like microbes, infectious contaminants, foodborne pathogens and genetic mutations. This innovation looks to change the way DNA analys
Curated by R. Scott Munro, the latest news and information about startups and innovations in healthcare. The Biomeme device allows for fast, cost effective DNA testing using an add-on to a standard IPhone 5s. You'd think something like this costs a lot, b
Last year, if you'd walked off a flight from West Africa running a high fever, you'd very quickly find yourself quarantined to test for the Ebola virus. The length of your stay in quarantine would depend on how long it took to run the required tests.
Philadelphia is in many ways a city of Eds and Meds - a nucleus in the eastern part of the country for health care innovation. And our young people play a critical role in that. There's Jeffrey Hom, a Penn scholar who cares for patients at the Philadelphi
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Some city high school students are learning about science by ordering sushi, and what they discover may surprise you. Biotech students here at String Theory School used genetic testing to learn about the food they consume.
