IDENTIFYSENSORS BIOLOGICS RECEIVES TECHOHIO START-UP AWARD
Cleveland – IdentifySensors Biologics, along with leading researchers at Purdue University,
developed a breakthrough technology that intends to reshape the future of diagnostic testing. It is
their innovative nanosensor technology, Check4TM, that won them the 2021 TechOhio Start-Up
Creativity Challenge Award.
TechOhio called on its network of startups, small businesses, and tech companies to share their
most creative problem-solving solutions. They wanted to learn about new products that helped
overcome an issue, new software that solved problems, and technology innovations that created
something that never before seemed possible. Check4TM, the disruptive new diagnostic testing
platform that intends to be completely different from any others currently on the market, met that
criteria. It’s a molecular gene test that uses nanosensor technology to detect early and
“With COVID still raging around the globe, our test is a game-changer,” said Dr. Gregory
Hummer, founder of IdentifySensors Biologics. “It’s fast, affordable and intends to provide
accurate results within minutes on your smartphone. Check4TM can help us get back to living a
more normal life.”
IdentifySensors is currently in the commercialization stage with Check4TM. It is a testing
platform containing two parts – a re-useable reader and cartridges that intend to check for several
infections and pathogens. The first cartridges are intended to test for COVID and the multiple
variants, and then a multiplex cartridge which will test for COVID and influenza A and B.
Check4TM is easy to use and fast, accurate, and affordable. Using saliva and the user’s
smartphone, results will be delivered within minutes. Future intended tests include MRSA,
Lyme, Hep C and B, foodborne pathogens, and more.
IdentifySensors Biologics is a Cleveland-based nanotechnology company focused on developing
real-time pathogen detection capabilities to be integrated with the internet of things (IoT). The
technology has expanded into multiple industries and applications, such as pathogen diagnostics
and testing for contamination in the world’s food supply chain.
