About us

Atzeyo Biosensors brings together nearly 200 years of life-science experience to create a desperately needed, ultrasensitive, highly accurate targeted biomarker detection platform that could someday fit in the palm of a clinician’s hand.


Our collaboration of educational, institutional, business, and technological knowledge provides the core impetus behind Atzeyo Biosensors. But it’s our collective desire to improve and lengthen patients’ lives — in cancer and other diseases — that truly drives us. We want to make a difference.
