Rapid, instrument-free diagnostics at the point-of-need

About Us


Chemeleon has created a novel platform technology for rapid, accurate, and affordable diagnostics that are capable of detecting a broad range of analytes including drugs, proteins, and viruses. This proprietary, sample-to-answer format provides a colorimetric readout in minutes, visible to the naked eye, without the need for any readers, instruments, equipment, or training, providing truly decentralized testing that can enable clinicians to extend the point-of-care beyond the clinic.

Colorimetric Sensing For a Safer World

Home Testing Icon


Improves early diagnosis, detecting and monitoring potential or specific health conditions.

ED Testing Icon


Reduces time to treatment from hours / days to minutes, supplementing lab-based testing with clinician-administered tests.

EMT Testing Icon


Provides EMTs a tool to diagnose and route patients to hospitals more efficiently. 

Remote Testing Icon


Provides low resource areas diagnostics where lab equipment is scarce or nonexistent.

Cerebral Spinal Fluid Leak Detection

As the first application of Chemeleon’s platform technology, we have developed a colorimetric cerebral spinal fluid (CSF) diagnostic that can be administered without the need for instrumentation, providing clinicians with a visible yes or no read-out in under 5 mins.

Delayed detection of CSF leaks results in worsened patient outcomes, increased patient morbidity, and additional healthcare costs for millions of individuals each year.
