The barrier to molecular electronics was the previous inability to detect the tiny electric signals from single molecules. Roswell Biotechnologies overcame that problem and integrated the solution with CMOS. This enables an interface between molecules for sensors and DNA and other biological detections with CMOS.
Nanopores have existed for a long time and being able to draw DNA, RNA or proteins through a pore can be engineered to have different signals. Those signals can now be detected.
This enables rapid, low cost, mobile detection systems for diverse biomarkers. Enabling powerful, in-the-field pathogen detection, infectious disease monitoring, environmental monitoring, and identification of bio-specimens, species or individuals.
Initial systems in 2 years should be commercialized at 100 million sensors per chip. This should scale to trillions of sensors per chip and hundreds of trillions with wafer-scale systems.
