Camtech Diagnostics aims to provide first responders, key installations, civil defense and the military with prompt screening methods for biological threats targeting homeland security. Our focus is to enable rapid, intuitive and cost-effective detection of biological agents and toxins. The devices will complement existing field detection methods such as portable PCR and lateral flow immunoassay, as well as current lab based testing methods.

Camthrax Biothreat Detector

Know what you are dealing with and know now. Detect down to 3,000 Bacillus spores (e.g. Anthrax, Thuringiensis, Tetanus, Clostridium) from hoax substances such as flour, baking powder, talcum powder or dust in 99% of scenarios.

Camthrax’s optical technology eliminates complicated sample preparation. No mixing or glove-unfriendly preparations.

Think one-button simple

The device is simple and easy to use with one-button simplicity. Press the button. Read the LCD display. Make an informed decision. That’s all there is to it. No interpretation required. No room for ambiguity.

Because you never know what you will find at the scene

The device’s versatility takes the guesswork out of preparation by allowing you to quickly quantify samples in powder form, including powders, smears and spills.

Clear multiple targets with ease

The device’s push-button simplicity and instant reusability mean you can rapidly move through sites and clear multiple targets, minimizing costly lockdown times and your time on site.

Because the frontline can be rough

Camthrax is battery powered, lightweight and fully integrated in one small handheld unit, so you can take it where it needs to go. A glove and chemical-suit friendly design means you can concentrate on the task at hand.

Performance you can rely on

Because lives depend on your work, we know you need more than our word. You need proof. That’s why we’ve had our technology independently tested. That’s why we’re making production detectors available to the testing labs you trust.
