PersOwn Diagnostics

A breakthrough in electrochemical biosensor technology

A Handheld Laboratory

Rapid Results

PERSOWN is developing portable medical diagnostic testing with results in seconds using a configurable hand-held testing device and a growing menu of diagnostic test strips, able to test a variety of fluids including saliva, urine, blood, and others. Our first test will be a saliva-based test for COVID-19.

Initial functional proof of concept

Inexpensive, disposable strips

The technology for our diagnostic tests sits in a small test strip, like a blood glucose test. When presented with an electrical charge, it can measure the presence of a virus against an antibody or aptamer, producing a near-instant result, like flipping a light switch.

Millions of test strips can be produced per day using our bioprinting processes.


Version 1
Durable handheld unit. Initial functional proof of concept. Suited for high-throughput ports of entry and public events.

Version 2
Ultra-small, lightweight 2 -piece design (analyzer and charger). Suitable for use in the field or at home, anywhere in the world.


PERSOWN’s breakthrough electrochemical biosensor technology platform is capable of testing a wide variety of infectious diseases, acute conditions, cancers and toxins. Applications include medical diagnostics, home health care, and environmental, food, and animal testing.
