A gold standard laboratory for anyone, anywhere
Founding Year: 2014
anywhereHPLC is developing a handheld device based on high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
HPLC is an analytical technique which is used extensively around the world for many of our agriculture and healthcare tests. Due to their complexity and prohibitive costs they are only found in centralised laboratories which means it is expensive and it often takes weeks for test results to come back after a visit the doctor or the sending of a soil sample. Instant results would mean less carbon-emitting travel and a reduction in the over-fertilisation of crops, decreasing negative environmental impact.
anywhereHPLC will for the first time provide the power of the centralised laboratory in a portable and easy to use format at the doctor’s surgery or in the farmer’s field allowing them to get instant results when and where they need it.
