DGel Sciences Inc develops the right tools to quickly detect bad stuff.
Every year millions of people are sickened just because of microbial contamination of food and water. And a good number of these people die from such exposure. As such, food and water safety are an important part of everyday life. This includes not only industry but also the family home (as contaminated foods are found in the home and surfaces (such as counters and dishes) need to be thoroughly cleaned). It has been estimated that by 2020, $1.5 billion will be spent, per year, on the detection of microbes and/or their byproducts (toxins).
DGel Sciences Inc product line is targeting three very large markets that represent both the commercial and domestic interests:
Current detection technologies under development are based on aptamers, antibodies, bacteriophages and specific sugars. DGel Sciences Inc does not restrict itself to just one detection technology platform because there is not one solution for all microbes. Certain microbes are best detected using sugar-based technologies, yet another may be best detected using an aptamer.
The products that DGel Sciences Inc is researching and developing are meant to be portable or handheld. The simplest product will be designed for household use. Later products will be able to operate in a continuous detection mode.
DGel Sciences has offices or research facilities located in Canada, China and Taiwan.
Its main office is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
