Our Story

The world around you, and inside you, is made of molecules—more different types than stars in the universe. What if you had a portal that let you see them all, one at a time, individually? We're building portals to what we call Molecular Reality™.  Our goal is to make molecular sensing a vital utility for the world. In the first stage of our grand design, we're releasing an advanced scientific instrument that's literally a gaming console—the demonpore 64™.
Our Ambition

In 5 years, we'll be the Apple of molecular sensing.  We want to be the reason there's never another pandemic.  We want to turn biology into an information science.  We want the medical diagnostics industry to be completely decentralized and democratized, and we want our instruments to be the backbone for all of it. We're starting out by building a core group of customers who will be the molecular sensor wizards of the future—learning advanced molecular science by playing games.
