Ekidna offers a more complete solution than any of the other options available in the market:
- Laboratory-based solutions require immense time, expertise, and capital cost. These don’t meet the need for rapid, decentralized, and simple diagnostics.
- Alternative low-cost solutions are limited to testing specific samples.
- Some alternatives are being tested for portable applications but they lack accuracy and are still bulky, inconvenient, and relatively expensive.
- FT-IR based solutions are not precise enough for quantification. They are only useful for identification purposes, or absolute pure sample quantification.
Research on Ekidna’s tech began at the University of Ottawa in 2015, and the company was founded in 2019. Ekidna spent 2020 working with startup accelerators and pursuing customer validation, product development and pilot trials.
