Developing rapid diagnostics to improve patient outcomes.


Nanopath was spun out of the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth. 


We founded our company because we believe that the technology we've been developing in the lab can save lives.

At Nanopath, we're passionate about improving the human condition through the development of life-saving technologies.  


Our first product aims to dramatically shorten the diagnostic timelines for viral infections by eliminating nucleic acid amplification requirements. 

In addition to developing a state-of-the-art tool for centralized laboratories, we plan to develop a point-of-care system for use in low-resource settings and underserved communities.


Our diagnostic harnesses advances in bioengineering and nanotechnology to sensitively and specifically detect viral, bacterial and fungal pathogens in complex biological matrices.


The technology platform has applications that extend beyond infectious disease, and include biosecurity surveillance, food and water safety, and cancer monitoring.
