Capital raised: $5 million
What they do: Coyote Bioscience has developed small, battery-powered molecular diagnostic devices, allowing patients to conduct clinical, genome-related analysis that has traditionally had to be performed in a research lab.
What was the spark behind the company? “When I was a research student, I was always hoping to have smarter tools for gene analysis to relieve the day-and-night experimental work. When I became a mother, I was always feeling helpless when my baby got a fever and I didn’t know how to treat it. So now we are trying to make smart tools and low-cost gene analysis tools for both researchers and consumers.” – Sabrina Li
