Engineering TV Interview: OptiEnz Biosensors Detect Contaminants in Real-Time Using Bioengineering and Fiber Optics
Colorado State University Professor Ken Reardon, working in tandem with Cenergy, the university’s vehicle for commercializing innovative clean and renewable technologies, has created OptiEnz Sensors LLC to develop, manufacture and sell biosensors which rely on fluorescent light to identify contaminants in continuously, in real-time. Electronic Design’s Bill Wong met with postdoctoral researchers Ryan Holcomb [...]
FORT COLLINS — In recent years, the demand for organic chemical testing that is quick, efficient and low cost has become increasingly important for a variety of applications, ranging from monitoring water pollutants to food and beverage safety. To meet that need, Fort Collins-based OptiEnz Sensors has developed a very simple, effective solution – [...]
FORT COLLINS – Chris Thompson, a former director of Enterprise Systems at Advanced Energy Industries and Colorado State University alumnus, has been named president of OptiEnz Sensors LLC, a university startup that is developing biosensors for detecting food and water contaminants.
“Chris is a great addition to our team – his expertise will be valuable with getting this technology out of the laboratory and into commercial production,” said Ken Reardon, a Colorado State professor of chemical and biological engineering who co-founded OptiEnz.
