Hand Hygiene Monitoring Platform
Healthcare-Associated Infections (HAIs) are the most common type of complication for patients who are hospitalized. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in 2011 there were an estimated 721,800 HAIs in U.S. acute care hospitals that led to about 75,000 deaths and more than $20 billion in healthcare costs. It is well documented that hand hygiene is one of the most effective measures to reduce the transmission of healthcare-associated pathogens and the incidence of healthcare associated infections.
Our sensor-based platform helps infection control professionals to monitor hand hygiene of healthcare providers and ultimately to reduce healthcare-associated infections.
Liquid Biopsy Sensor
Every year more than $250 billion was spent on cancer in the United States. In general, more than 90% of cancer-related deaths are related to metastasis. Metastatic precursors in the bloodstream can potentially be pivotal in early cancer detection, personalized medicine and minimal residual disease monitoring. Compared to fresh tissue biopsy, “liquid biopsy” of bio-markers in blood samples is much more accessible and affordable, and is much less invasive.
Our highly sensitive and cost-effective biosensor platform targets at liquid biopsy in clinical applications.
Environmental Monitoring Sensor
Air and water quality monitoring is important to reduce healthcare expense and improve energy efficiency.
At Microsensor Labs, we are utilizing our expertise in CMOS sensor technology to develop ultra-low-power and cost effective environmental monitoring devices.

Since 2016, we've been growing rapidly with multi-million-dollar non-dilutive funding from National Institute of Health. Currently, we're focusing that expansion on our hand-hygiene system that will reduce hospital-acquired infections and save lives. We'll be conducting clinical trials with this technology in 2019.
If you're interested in joining the effort, you'll be greeted with an excellent, multidisciplinary environment for professional development, as well as a highly competitive compensation packages (including some nice benefits and perks!) Shoot us a message at email@example.com. Attach your resume, and any open-source code, work samples, video demos, or presentations you think might help you stand out.
