Mentor-100

The Mentor-100 is a fully automated and portable biodetector of biothreats in the environment. The sampling system collects particles of the appropriate size and passes them to a microfluidic system for processing and binding of any threats to appropriate markers. The presence of bound markers is detected by a patented application of magnetic resonance technology. The entire operation is autonomous, from sampling to detection and subsequent decontamination in preparation for the next sample. The system not only detects biothreats but identifies them. It is capable of performing both single-threat and multiplexed detection. The target library is expandable and can include fungus, viruses, parasites and bacterial threats.
