Transforming Point-of-Care Testing

Company History

Prominex was founded in 2018 by individuals passionate about transforming molecular point-of-care testing. Together, we are focused on developing near-patient testing with rapid, central lab accuracy for clinically actionable results and cost-effective testing kits for broad accessibility. Our Validex System is a transformative molecular diagnostic testing solution for near patient care settings designed to deliver results in 5 minutes. The novel molecular amplification and waveguide detection technologies enables the development of fast, accurate, easy-to-use, highly multiplexed, and low-cost molecular diagnostic assays providing unprecedented value to practitioners.

Initial assay development focus is on SARS-CoV-2, Sexually Transmitted Infections and other Respiratory Tract Infections. Broad IP portfolio protects our novel enzyme, molecular chemistry and detection technologies. The leadership team has proven experience developing best-in-class molecular diagnostic assays and medical devices. Seed capital financing provided by Casdin Capital LLC and the founding CEO.
