    The world is filled with harmful pathogens that increasingly threaten the safety of our cannabis, food and beverages. And yet, testing labs still rely on the Petri dishes scientists invented over a century ago. At PathogenDX, we’re bringing microbial testing into the modern age. Our patent-winning scientists have invented a game-changing DNA-based microarray technology that accelerates the testing and identification of microbes (from E-coli to powdery mildew)—delivering accurate, quantifiable results in just six hours. With our products and support, growers, regulators and consumers get the vital results needed to save money and lives, and the information is shared across the industry’s only trackable platform to assure safety even further. Starting with Cannabis, we’re demonstrating the power of DNA-based science to promote a healthier, more secure future for us all.
