Biomeme allows users to turn a mobile device (such as the latest iOS smartphone) into a DNA diagnostics lab. The low-cost, user-friendly system performs the same tests typically performed in labs: Users collect a sample and Biomeme’s proprietary single-use sample prep kit extracts the DNA/RNA in about 1 minute without additional lab equipment. The ensuing analysis takes about 45 minutes and the result is displayed on the mobile app. Biomeme has partnered with Drexel Medicine, Scripps, and the CDC for studies to detect sexually transmitted infections, influenza, and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV).
