Worcester, MA (PressExposure) June 29, 2009 -- ECI Biotech of Worcester, MA, a leading edge protein sensor company, is pleased to announce that ECI was chosen to present at the 15th Annual Life Sciences Venture Forum in San Jose CA. For over a decade the Life Sciences Venture Forum has followed the tradition of being a showcase event featuring the most innovative and promising early stage technologies.
Life Sciences Venture Forum presenters are drawn from the Larta Institute's commercialization programs, specifically National Institutes of Health Commercialization Assistance Program (NIH-CAP), as well as a vast network of university researchers and stand-alone entrepreneurs.
Dr. Mitchell Sanders, the CEO and Founder of ECI Biotech, highlighted ECI Biotech's role as a premier developer and manufacturer of innovative, patented ExpressDetect diagnostic technology that enables rapid, easy detection of microbial pathogens. The ExpressDetect sensors that ECI Biotech has developed are low cost, rapid, safe, and simple enough for incorporation into a variety of products that can provide rapid infection diagnostics for use in professional as well as consumer OTC markets.
ECI Biotech's product pipeline includes a diagnostic sensor for urinary tract infections, as well as advanced wound care systems that provide early warning of emergent infections and promote healing. The dressing sensor is simple enough to see a food grade blue color collect on the surface of the dressing, inexpensive enough that the components cost less than ten cents, generally regarded as safe (GRAS) to go on your skin or in a wound, and rapid enough to change color in 30 minutes to an hour.
