Biomeme’s platform transforms your smartphone into a mobile lab for advanced DNA detection and real-time disease surveillance. Our system performs to the gold standard used by the world’s most advanced central labs, but requires no lab equipment or special experience to use.

With the low cost, ease-of-use, and unparalleled field portability of our platform, we’re uniquely poised to rapidly advance One Health initiatives in emerging diseases, agro-surveillance, as well as emergency preparedness, response and recovery.

Biomeme disrupted molecular diagnostics 7 years ago when it created the first iPhone add-on capable of performing real-time PCR. Since our inception, we have used advanced biology and chemistry, along with world-class hardware and software engineering, to create elegant solutions to complex problems. Over the years, we expanded to offer a full suite of end-to-end mobile molecular solutions including easy-to-use sample prep, ultra-portable hardware & consumables, intuitive mobile applications, PCR data management software, and a robust Web API.

Based in Philadelphia, PA, our facility includes software and firmware development, industrial/mechanical/electrical engineering, small-scale manufacturing and a BSL-2 molecular biology lab.
