For over 10 years we have been using a wide array of technologies to detect cancer biomarkers. In the last year we transitioned from using third party technologies to develop our own platform. We are building on our extensive experience in biomarker detection and clinical oncology. We changed the name of our company to reflect our new focus.


Our state-of-the-art R&D facility is focused in the development of the LightBOX, an automated point-of-care device capable of capturing, staining, and imaging circulating tumor cells from blood derived samples.

Our facilities were originally designed and built for Austin Biological Laboratories, an innovative pioneer in biological research in Austin, Texas.
