About Us


MEP Labs created an amplification-based diagnostic platform for use by people who are more susceptible to infectious disease: infants, elderly, cancer patients, immune suppressed, chronic disease, as well as for those who want to detect microbes in their craft: brewers, fermentors, and more!

MEP Labs was founded by a trio of researchers from University of Washington, Department of Bioengineering who collaborated on low-cost diagnostics for low resource settings. The team has extensive experience in developing amplification strategies to target complex genomic regions, novel sample preparation technologies, as well as preservation reagents for dry storage of mammalian tissue.
