Chai lets anyone perform cutting-edge DNA analysis. With our $3000 desktop device (10x less costly than competitors), anyone can perform DNA diagnostics including pathogen/virus detection and genotyping, without requiring a lab or PhD. This opens up enormous new applications in global health, agtech, water quality monitoring, food safety, microbrewing, veterinary medicine, research, biohacking, and eventually consumer healthcare.
In addition to the device, we provide test kits including all consumables needed, and are building cloud-based data analytics applications. We also provide an open platform that lets third party diagnostic vendors perform a rich integration with our device, and are working to crowdsource the development and validation of new tests.
