A mobile platform for quantitative allergen testing in food samples
Cellmic’s personalized food allergen testing platform automatically analyses colorimetric assays toward sensitive and specific detection of allergens in food samples. Weighing approximately 40 grams, this digital tool can quantify peanut contamination in food samples with a minimum detection level of ~1 ppm (parts per million), finding applications in various public health settings.

A portable, cost-effective and sensitive environmental screening platform
Cellmic’s novel technology allows the quantification of mercury ions in water samples with parts per billion (ppb) level of sensitivity in field settings. Utilizing a smartphone attachment that weighs less than 40 grams, this mobile tool is wirelessly integrated into cloud services, and useful for tracking and sharing real-time water contamination information. Using this wireless platform, a mercury contamination map has been generated by measuring water samples at over 50 locations in California (USA).
