Immunovent Wins “Best of the Best” in 1st Pitch Life Science Competition
January 14, 2015
Immunovent, a New York City based diagnostic start-up focusing on the commercialization of novel technologies for diagnosing allergies, was chosen as the “Best of the Best” among previous winners of Mid-Atlantic Bio Angels (MABA)1st Pitch Life Science events in 2014. Seven companies competed for the title of ?Best of the Best?.
Immunovent is developing a platform technology called the Local Antibody Mucosal Brush Diagnostic (LAMB-Dx). It is a needle-free allergy test that works with minute cell samples that are easily and painlessly collected with a soft brush. A proprietary process is then used to detect the specific proteins in the samples that indicate the presence of a food or airborne allergy.
