Chemeleon

Chemical sensors for the immediate, accurate, optical detection of hazardous compounds in the field and biomarkers at the point of care.

Nanotechnology

NIH and NSF grant recipient, Chemeleon created a platform technology for rapid, instrument-free, detection of chemical compounds in the field, obviating slow, complex and expensive lab analysis. Our sensor materials combine highly-selective molecular receptors with colorimetric nanomaterial reporters to provide autonomous and inert means of optically detecting hazardous chemicals in any environment, from clinical to third-world settings.
