Below is a short history of our company.

  • July 2013: Commercialization Begins

    Mobile Assay releases a commercialized version of product with enhanced reading algorithms and cloud storage capability and signs up our first partners.

  • 2012: Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

    Mobile Assay is awarded a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a low-cost, highly sensitive smartphone-based platform that employs phone cameras to image and amplify signals from immunoassays to detect Botrytis and aflatoxin infection in seeds or soil.

  • OCT 2010: PROTOTYPED MOBILE ALGORITHM

    After bringing on Bryan Callahan for mobile software development, the paper’s initial idea is reconstructed to a stand-alone, functional prototype.

  • SEPT 2010: Papers Published and Patent Applied

    Dr. Cooper publishes paper on a method called Quantitative Ratiometric Pixel Density Analysis (QRPDA) and Mobile Image Ratiometry (MIR) which allows mobile smart phone technology to quantify and increase the sensitivity of immunochromatographic lateral flow tests.

  • 2010: Beginning of the road

    The science behind Mobile Assay was conceived at the University of Colorado, Boulder by Dr. Don Cooper an associate professor at the Institute for Behavioral Genetics.
