Simultaneous detection of multiple targets in less than 1 minute - sensitive, specific, & accurate

Apr 1, 2014

Conductive DNA Real-Time Simultaneous Detection of Multiple Targets

Fred Albert, PhD, President, Bridger Technologies, Inc.

While progress is being made on the rapid and simultaneous detection of multiple targets, evolutionary improvements to conventional biodetection systems are unlikely to overcome their inherent limitations. A breakthrough technology that enables the simultaneous detection of multiple targets in less than one minute will be presented. This non-PCR, conductive DNA-based technology has been shown to be highly sensitive, highly specific, and deliver accurate results even in the presence of background and contaminants that debilitate or foul other detection systems. Dr. Albert has authored numerous articles and patents in the field of molecular biology, biochemistry, and disease pathology. His expertise in molecular biology, biochemistry and physics has been critical to the design, development, and advancement of BTI's inventions. He graduated with a B.S. degree in Biochemistry from the University of Minnesota (Minneapolis, MN) and a Ph.D. degree in molecular biophysics from Purdue University (West Lafayette, IN).
