Dedicated to expanding access to inexpensive, scalable, COVID screening

We’ve put together the technical, regulatory, and logistical pieces to massively scale testing. Our approach combines:

Ultra-cheap test chemistry

Our test is fast and cost-effective but doesn’t compromise on reliability or sensitivity.

Instrument-free scaling

There are no specialized machines or instrumentation used for FloodLAMP—just basic lab equipment. This means testing can be massively scaled without the typical barriers and capital costs.

Distributed sample pooling

Enables collection of massive numbers of samples, with on-site and at-home pooling.

Open Source Protocol Tests

Instead of secret ingredients, we fully disclose all of the components of our tests to labs. By using off-the-shelf chemicals and reagents that are available in abundant supply, we enable access to high quality, validated tests at the lowest cost. We’re following in the footsteps of the first Open Protocol EUA, SalivaDirect.

Join our growing coalition of scientific collaborators, impact investors, and corporate partners in support of widely accessible COVID-19 public health testing.

Who we are

We are a Public Benefit Corporation dedicated to making the greatest positive impact during the COVID crisis and beyond.

Open COVID Pledge

Immediate action is required to halt the COVID-19 Pandemic and treat those it has affected. It is a practical and moral imperative that every tool we have at our disposal be applied to develop and deploy technologies on a massive scale without impediment.

We therefore pledge to make our intellectual property available free of charge for use in ending the COVID-19 pandemic and minimizing the impact of the disease.

We will implement this pledge through a license that details the terms and conditions under which our intellectual property is made available.

Join us

We are actively recruiting mission-driven scientists, engineers, programmers, and generalists to join our fast-growing startup in San Carlos, CA. Both onsite and remote opportunities are available.
