Library of Biosensors

A Robust Collection of Biosensors

Our CANARY technology can be leveraged to create a variety of pathogen-detecting biosensors that have a wide range of applications across industries. Take a look at our biosensor library below to see the pathogens we can currently detect. Don’t see what you’re looking for? Check out our page on customized applications or contact us directly.

Technology You Can Count On

All of our biosensors are developed with CANARY® (Cellular Analysis and Notification of Antigen Risks and Yields) technology. PathSensors’ CANARY® technology was invented by scientists at MIT Lincoln Labs following the 2001 anthrax attacks in the United States. Funded by a DARPA contract, CANARY® was designed to be faster, more sensitive, and easier to use than competing technologies, dramatically increasing safety and responsiveness for users.

Today, PathSensors offers a suite of detection instruments using the CANARY® technology in biodefense, food safety, agriculture, and emerging disease markets. Third party validation labs have proven the effectiveness of CANARY®, and PathSensors’ customer base is global. When it comes to pathogen detection, we strive to be the best in the business. Let’s work together.
